    Back pain is a serious problem that can prevent us from being able to engage in the activities we love. If you have back pain or have been diagnosed with muscle strain or spasms, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, facet joint dysfunction, spondylolisthesis or sciatica, the Feldenkrais Method® has much to offer you.

    You can use the Feldenkrais Method to address a wide range of back problems including those caused or exacerbated by your unconscious habits of posture, movement and self-use. Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement® exercises give your brain an opportunity to update your postural patterns and improve your body’s musculoskeletal organization. With better organization, pressure on your discs, joints and ligaments will be reduced. Your muscles will do less work and inflammation will subside, allowing healing to take place.

    Join Marek Wyszynski, Co-Founder of the Feldenkrais Institute, for an important back-care workshop. Learn Feldenkrais strategies to help you organize your posture for better support and reduce the frequency and severity of many common back problems.

    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.



    I have long been intrigued by this subtle form of retraining the nervous system, which I currently recommend to patients whose movement has been restricted by injury, cerebral palsy, stroke, fibromyalgia, or chronic pain. I find it to be much more useful than standard physical therapy. I also believe that the Feldenkrais Method can help older people achieve greater range of motion, flexibility, and help us all feel more comfortable in our bodies.
