Options Beyond Pain Medications and Surgeries

Many people accept and expect limitations because they assume there are no options beyond pain medications and surgeries. Yet, thousands of people around the world have managed to avoid both. And, they actually improve and expand their movement possibilities. Participating in Feldenkrais Method®lessons, either privately, or in Awareness Through Movement® classes, can put you on the road to continuing progress.

Feldenkrais® lessons are not like traditional exercise or therapy. They offer a new way of learning about how you move, and how you move through life. So whether it’s playing music, hiking on a trail, or picking up your grandchild – the Feldenkrais Method can help you to create better quality in everything you enjoy.

Body Awareness is Key to Injury Prevention

Body awareness is key to injury prevention.
The more you move the better off you are.
You may ask, “what if the kind of movement you’re doing will become more difficult as you age?”
We often don’t think about the impact of our movements’ habits – how we hold tension in our neck or lower back, how inefficient we breath, how we shovel snow, or even how we run or do yoga. These ‘movements habits’ can contribute to aging dramatically. The dilemma is that old habits can become dangerous to our joints by overstressing ligaments causing strains, injuries, and tears in our muscle.
Body awareness is the key to preventing injuries. Nothing will protect your back or your knees more than having body awareness to know how to move in a protective manner. We need our brains to understand our limits when we exercise so that we do not strain our bodies into injury. Taking Feldenkrais classes will help you with that. These classes are also called Awareness Through Movement.
