I help people with a wide range of issues, including back or neck pain, rehabilitation after hip surgery, improving a golf swing, jaw dysfunction, recovery from stroke, balance, confidence, breathing etc.
Many of my clients are professional people who want to lessen the ill-effects of spending long hours sitting at a computer – i.e. improve posture, relieve shoulder/neck/arm tension.
My philosophy is to empower my clients to help themselves.
I came to the Feldenkrais Method from a background of therapeutic massage and yoga. I tried many systems that gave me relief from back and neck pain, but it was always temporary. Then I discovered Feldenkrais and found it addressed underlying causes of unconscious postural and muscular habits.
As a professional massage therapist, I found many of my clients also need help with changing their habits, so that they don’t keep slipping back into painful patterns.
The activities that I enjoy in life – dancing, gardening, walking, reading...have all become more comfortable and enjoyable thanks to the Method. Mentally, I am more relaxed, more optimistic, and more able to find solutions to life’s challenges thanks to the more fluid thinking process the Method encourages.
