The Feldenkrais Method

  • Will initiate this article with the words of its founder, Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984) physicist at the University of Sorbonne in Paris: “I will be his last teacher. Not because I am the best teacher you can find, but because of my you will learn how to learn. When you learn how to learn will find that there are no teachers, only learners and people learning how to facilitate learning. ” The main objective of this method is the reeducation of movement, replacing old habits with new more efficient and organized options optimizing our daily lives. Its focus is training and teaching, is used as an alternative to relieve chronic muscle and mental tension, severe pain, improve posture, anxiety, stress, depression, neuralgia among others. The method offers more than 1500 sequences of movement, where the patient participates actively in their own healing process, looking for a slight stimulation on the muscle for the purpose of which conforms to the sensation of pain eliminating the presence of the same.

    Not teaches the person to do the right thing, but your brain discriminates proper form and choose the most appropriate. The Feldenkrais method is implemented in two ways: The Functional Integration (individual session): the therapist observes and manipulates the movements of the person and relates to the lack suffering and looks like it could move in a different way to stop the disease. Awareness Through Movement (group session) followed verbal instructions of the therapist. It’s in my interest to conclude that in all programs of musculoskeletal injury prevention and ergonomics are considered innovative and more effective alternatives for achieving health outcomes and quality of life of people in their work and domestic, doing the difficult easier and more enjoyable easy.
