Neurological Applications

Because the Feldenkrais Method is a learning process, it has a wide application. Here is just a sample of situations where people have benefited from the work:

1. A person recovering from a neurological event, such as a stroke, fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s, MS, paralysis. See this video of Michael Forbes learning to walk again after damaging his spinal cord. VIDEO Here’s his walk on the beach VIDEO

2. A 9-year old with learning disabilities can read a full page competently and gains self-confidence in his intelligence.

3. A child with cerebral palsy learn easier ways of moving. Watch this video of a girl learning to roll over VIDEO Listen to a Feldenkrais trainer talk about how we use the method with children with special needs VIDEO
