My son was severely neurologically injured in an athletic accident. David was able to do what no one else could do. I have witnessed the benefits of the Feldenkrais Method and the results are amazing. I now have my healthy normal child again.

As a neuroscientist interested in the development and plasticity of the nervous system, it is gratifying to see how the Feldenkrais Method demonstrates these principles. The Feldenkrais Method has also greatly improved my personal quality of life — physically and emotionally — by reducing the restrictions and limitations I thought were permanent due to multiple sclerosis.
- Maria Luskin, Professor Emory University Medical School



Individual Sessions

The most direct way to benefit from Feldenkrais is to work privately with one of our highly skilled practitioners. In Functional Integration lessons, the work is tailored specifically to your needs, the touch is gentle and communicative, and your comfort is respected.  Call 212-727-1014 for an appointment.

The Feldenkrais Method Training Program has been a life changing experience, both personally and professionally. I have gained an understanding of the human body that no other discipline gave me and I am more effective with my clients. Knowing what a profound experience the training is, I am excited for anyone who is about to begin.
