Our most comprehensive package of services:
Do you have back pain? Millions of people do. There are many different kinds of back problems that range from intermittent and moderate, to chronic and severe. Common diagnoses include herniated discs, spinal stenosis, facet joint dysfunction, spondylolisthesis, sciatica, muscle strain, and muscle spasm. Each of these difficulties can be caused or exacerbated by poor posture or inefficient musculoskeletal organization; issues that doctors often refer to as “faulty mechanics.”
Feldenkrais® exercises (which are also called ‘lessons’ because your nervous system learns new things while you do them) can make all the difference in the health and function of your back. Join Feldenkrais Institute Co-founder, Marek Wyszynski, for an informative and practical workshop featuring Feldenkrais lessons for back care. You’ll learn how to mobilize your whole skeleton for better support, and gain a set of gentle, effective tools to help you maintain the comfort, flexibility and vitality of your back, any time you like.

Feldenkrais starts your whole life moving in new directions, with new choices on every level of your life. You must experience it. Feldenkrais has had a tremendous impact on my life. It has taught me to really listen to myself. I now know I need not stay stuck in pain. It has helped me see that I have choices, that my patterns of movement, my patterns of emotional "sludge" can change.
