Posture & Back Pain
Feldenkrais provides a new and effective approach for preventing back pain, improving posture and maintaining healthy bio-mechanical functioning.
Lessons can also assist with recovery following injuries, or operations such as hip replacement etc.
Rather than focusing on exercises or stretching & strengthening of muscles, Feldenkrais uses heightened awareness as a means of re-organising the brain’s habitual patterns of neuro-muscular activity. In this way you learn to recognise and adjust unconscious, stressful patterns of holding and moving your body that lead to limitation or strain.
Feldenkrais lessons and classes offer a unique experiential learning process that helps your brain and nervous system to develop more efficient and effective ways of functioning, including improved flexibility, balanced muscle tone, and increased connection to (and use of) core areas of support (pelvis and trunk).
