Our most comprehensive package of services:
The Feldenkrais Method® is a terrific resource for anyone who has back problems. You can use it to reduce many kinds of back pain, improve your posture, and protect yourself from back problems in the future.
Our spine has two structural curves that absorb shock, carry weight, and provide us with energy and power. If those two curves are diminished—either as a result of poor posture or injury—our entire skeletal support system can be compromised. Without the dynamic support provided by the two healthy curves of our spine, we are more susceptible to muscular pain and tension, disc problems, and unnecessary wear and tear throughout our body.
Join Feldenkrais® Institute Co-founder Marek Wyszynski to learn a Feldenkrais approach to back care. It can help you to reduce pain, heal, and reduce the likelihood of future problems.
