In his exciting new book, The Brain’s Way of Healing, Norman Doidge, M.D. introduces Dr. Feldenkrais as an early “neuroplastician” who had a sophisticated understanding of the human brain that was decades ahead of his time.

Today, as people become interested in accessing their own brain’s “neuroplastic” abilities, the Feldenkrais Method® is ready to help with hundreds of effective user-friendly Awareness Through Movement® exercises and a gentle hands-on approach that can be used to engage the brain’s plasticity to bring about improvements in the body’s comfort and function.
