As children, most of us could move pretty well, in fact we loved moving. Over the course of time, things changed. For a start, the brain made movement habitual, rather than exploratory, which is practical. Imagine having to work out how to walk each day. Yet habitual movement creates wear and tear. Add to that the effect of daily working posture, injury, beliefs and even persistent emotions. The end result is less flexibility, stiffness and pain or discomfort. If this is how you are feeling, try a Feldenkrais session, to see how it helps.
Grounded in the principles of neuroplasticity, Feldenkrais method shows that it is possible to change the way that we move and perform the tasks we want to do easily and effectively. Through the sensation of gentle and pain free movements, the brain is able to experience and become aware of better ways of moving and living. The Feldenkrais method is not a series of treatments but rather a re-education of the mind and body.
It is a rediscovery of how all parts of a person’s body are connected and contribute to effective movement. Rather than have something done to you or having to follow instructions about a specific regimen, it is a way of you becoming more aware of what you do and how you might find more satisfying alternatives.
Other scenarios that can also benefit from Feldnekrais include, a tennis player frustrated with their serve, a violinist with a persistent sore back, a singer seeking a more powerful voice.
Sue is a Feldenkrais Practitioner, available for consultations at the Centre.
