The Feldenkrais method

Fk LogoFeldenkrais is an intuitive therapy that improves movement and posture. Feldenkrais can help chronic back, neck and shoulder pain; combat sports injuries; improve posture; and relieve tension and stress. Feldenkrais tackles problems at source by bringing awareness and understanding to movement patterns. This allows us to move more comfortably, skillfully and gracefully inspiring greater self-awareness and confidence. It’s invaluable for all those who want to improve the way they use their bodies. Feldenkrais teaches how to become aware of your innate movement patterns which can then help you function more affectively – physically, emotionally and mentally. Feldenkrais is accepting of physical differences and outcomes.
