The Feldenkrais Method is a subtle yet powerful somatic movement technique that can improve everyday functional movement. The method has an extremely strong history in supporting and improving neurological conditions, mobility, injuries, and compliments overall wellbeing and vitality. Feldenkrais is accessible for many people from a wide range of backgrounds, from babies to mature adults.
Feldenkrais can help with many neurological conditions including:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Developmental Delay
Working with the central nervous systems and the understanding of the human brain’s capacity to change, adapt and improve when learning new information – known in the field of Neuroscience as Neuroplasticity – the Feldenkrais Method is an approach to improving functional movement. The method works with the whole person, so all movement stories are welcomed. The Feldenkrais Method typically starts with how someone already moves; they then are invited to discover new ways of moving and functioning that are easier and more connected. These new ways of moving and functioning can unravel habits that are deeply embedded, inviting natural intelligence to play and discover new neurological pathways. Learning new, non-habitual ways to move with awareness, can greatly improve the ability to function, promoting positive changes throughout life – not just movement.
Individual, hands-on sessions
At the beginning of the session we will discuss what you would like to focus on. This could be a specific question or movement story around a long-term condition or situation, or something broader like overall physical health and wellbeing. After a discussion you will lie fully clothed on a low padded table. Sessions can be done sitting if required. During this time I use gentle touch instead of verbal instructions to invite, suggest and guide new ways of moving. After a session many people feel lighter and easier in their movements, noticing an improvement in their breathing and overall physical and emotional wellbeing.
The first session is 1hour 15minutes. Follow up sessions are 1 hour.
Prices: £60 for first session £50 for follow up session
