FELDENKRAIS METHOD:

This method evolved from Judo, a martial art, and is used in this clinic to enhance injury prevention and develop body-awareness skills. Athletes, musicians, performing artists and laborors tell us the Feldenkrais Method teaches them to move with minimum effort and maximum efficiency. Combined with physical therapy we find recovery from injuries occurs faster and with greater completion.
