The Feldenkrais Method 

How does it work? Recognizing that it is the brain that drives movement, and not muscles, and that the brain has the ability to learn or relearn after injury and damage, the Feldenkrais Method works in a gentle yet profound way to guide each individual to his or her full potential. One of the unique and wonderful things about the Feldenkrais Method is that it uses movement as a tool to inform the whole person.

The lessons are related to their environment and respect the process of learning that is unique to each individual. This method fully engages a child--thinking, sensing and feeling. For example, if your child cannot stand by himself or herself, unless we believe that they will never be able to acquire this skill, we will generally not attempt to stand them, or place them in equipment that "holds" them up. Rather, we will begin to introduce variations so the child can experience and begin to incorporate the missing element(s) upon which those standing skills are built.

"I recommend the Feldenkrais Method to patients whose movement has been restricted by injury, cerebral palsy, stroke, fibromyalgia or chronic pain."

Andrew Weil, M.D.
