WHY TRY IT?
We are here to offer lessons in both the Feldenkrais Method and ABM®. These modalities are very different from traditional routes of self improvement, because in the sessions we approach the movements from the perspective of the brain.
Going about these movements in a specific way heightens the sensitivity in the person and allow for change to occur. This change can be quiet large or subtle and the brain naturally integrates it's experience.
ABM and Feldenkrais have helped people with such limiting conditions as Traumatic Brain Injury, stroke, Scoliosis, Stenosis, and Sciatica. Also children with special needs related to Autism, ADD/ADHD, Cerebral Palsy, and Genetic Disorders. That being said we all stand to live a more vital life with a more flexible and potent thinking brain, which makes lessons beneficial to anyone what will give it a try.
