There’s no pumping iron, no stretching, no sweat-inducing aerobics in this technique that focuses on body coordination to get rid of pain.

This sounds great! If only, I had the time... I have suffered with chronic back pain since I was 10 years old. I am so sick of doctors strongly encouraging pain medications, temporary surgeries and procedures, and non-customized physical therapy. I would love to have a personalized plan to a better/less pain me!

I have used it and, while I still use the supports of traditional medicine, the movements and so on I got from Feldenkrais are still very helpful with flexibility and movement.

It's wonderful. I work with Lisa Walker and I hardly ever see my wonderful chiropractor any more. I get injured less often and my body tends to self adjust. I'm almost 50 and very physically active. I used to have low back pain - no more. My knees may need medical intervention some day, but I think the Feldenkrais changes in the way I move mean I'll get a lot more useful years use out of them before that. And the horses all love it - move better, ride better = happier horses.

I am a 60 yr. old woman and am lucky to have been introduced to Feldenkrais in my early 20's. Practicing the method all these years has been a huge factor in my ablity to continue enjoying dancing, gardening, hiking and moving around in daily life with a feeling of ease and coordination. Learning to have more body awareness makes it so much easier to stay active and healthy and to simply enjoy yourself!
