At Health Ridge Network LLC in Everett, WA, we have several masseuses trained in the Feldenkrais Method. This incredible technique was developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, a Russian scientist and scholar, who worked in both physics and mechanics, but was also a teacher and a practiced expert in Judo. His wide range of studies led him to this unified theory which can deliver amazing benefits.
The Feldenkrais Method is essentially a species of somatic education using gentle movement combined with directed attention in order to improve your movement and enhance complete human functioning. This method can increase your range of motion and ease, improving both flexibility and coordination, and give you back your natural capacity for graceful and efficient movement.
The Feldenkrais Method was created based on scientific principles from doctrines including physics, biomechanics and a comprehension of the correlation between human development and learning. Expansion of self-image through the movement sequences can draw attention to parts of the self otherwise outside of awareness, bringing more of yourself into your functioning movement.
Students of the Feldenkrais Method at Health Ridge Network LLC often become more conscious of their customary neuromuscular rigidities and patterns, and realize new and better ways to move. Through increased sensitivity, the Feldenkrais Method can assist you to live your life to the fullest with efficiency, comfort, and ease.
Moreover, the improvement of your physical functioning is just a simple end in itself. You will develop a broader functional awareness that opens gateways to more general enhancement of feeling and of physical functioning in your physical environment and your life.
Sounds a bit too New Age for you? Others who have tried and benefited from the Feldenkrais Method include basketball player Julius Erving, Israeli PM David Ben-Gurion, and Whoopi Goldberg. Even though it may sound too good to be true, this is a technique with benefits proven by hard science.
