UW Health Integrative Medicine Feldenkrais: balanced rocksThe Feldenkrais method® is based on current understanding of the neurological and kinesthetic processes involved in learning movement skills.
 
Through this practice you may increase your ease and range of motion and rediscover your innate capacity for graceful, efficient movement.
 
These improvements will often enhance your overall functioning in other aspects of your life.
 
Options
 
Functional Integration® (FI) Individual Sessions:

The practitioner communicates through gentle touch and movement in addition to words. The process enhances awareness and provides new information to the neuromuscular system, resulting in positive changes to one's organization and function.

 

Awareness Through Movement® (ATM) Group Classes: The practitioner verbally guides the students through sequences of gentle movements. Through these lessons people become aware of habits and rigidities, while they explore more efficient ways to move. Class will meet for one hour, one day per week.

 
Benefits
 
Practicing the Feldenkrais method® may help people of all abilities move with more ease. It increases coordination, balance and flexibility, decreases pain and discomfort, and provides a general sense of well-being.
 
It may be beneficial for people who have lost function because of age, accidents and degenerative, musculo-skeletal or neuromuscular disorders. It may also improve the function and performance of musicians, athletes and dancers.
