The Feldenkrais Method

The Feldenkrais Method was founded by the physicist, engineer and judo teacher Dr. Moshé Feldenkrais and described as a "learning method". Its aim is to get to know yourself better through movement and thus achieve greater freedom of action and a healthier mental, emotional and physical attitude. To bring thinking, emotions and movement into harmony.

There are two main approaches: group work and individual work. Group work is also known as "awareness through movement" and consists of a series of instructions for specific movements that are carried out in a group. The movements are easy to do and give participants space and time to discover their own patterns and movement connections. To recognise themselves in the movements and to become aware of the quality of movements.

The parasympathetic nervous system is stimulated, which causes a deeper breathing, a relaxation of tension and an increase of sensitivity. The skin has better blood circulation, which means that muscles and connective tissue are better supplied. The entire organism regenerates, energy reserves are built up and new neuronal connections are formed.

"Make the impossible possible, the possible easy and the easy elegant." (Dr. Moshé Feldenkrais)

Individual work is also known as "functional integration" and is an individual treatment that usually takes place on a treatment table and sometimes on a chair. Through manipulating movements by the therapist, the client's body is moved, always - just like in group sessions - within the framework of well-being, so that the nervous system can regenerate. This sensitive contact between therapist and client can create feelings such as security, trust, relief, connection and joy. These feelings are like the sounds of a musical instrument that has been tuned again and on which it is therefore easier to "hit the right tone".
