|"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 and flexibility, and help all of us feel more comfortable in our bodies." |
Dr. Andrew Weil
|“This class is gentle, soothing and within everyone’s ability to execute. .. as a singer, I can’t measure how valuable this training is in freeing the vocal mechanism and helping in making the singer’s typical “starting in front of the piano” posture more comfortable. It also helps release the breath in an amazing way.” |
Mireille Lebel, Singer
"I feel as though my body and I are speaking to each other for the first time! The classes were great ..."
Catharin Dawn Carew, Singer

|"Without your functional integration work on me, it would have been difficult to do the activities |
I love ... like alpine skiing, tennis, x-country skiing and golf. We need more people like you out there to spread the good news of new methods of effective physical therapy."
H.M. Stephenson, MD, FRCP (C)
|“Feldenkrais has helped me regain mobility and flexibility in my body after a car accident. Its gentle techniques allow me to go at my own pace and have helped regain my body awareness.” |
Marion Samuel Stevens, Singer
|”In just three weeks I have noticed an improvement in the flexibility of my back, hips and breastbone. I have become 100% more aware of how my body moves and why. As a singer, this increased awareness has led to a more free vocal quality and breath control.” |
Kelly Backwell, Singer
|"Feldenkrais represents a revolution in human health. Through this method we can learn to improve our living circumstances not only physically, but also emotionally, intellectually and spiritually." |
|"The Feldenkrais Method has had remarkable success in a wide range of complaints ranging from the debilitating to the merely nagging." |
|"In eight years of searching, Feldenkrais is the most effective way I have found to alleviate fibromyalgia and chronic pain. I would not hesitate it to recommend it to anyone!" |
Kathryn Church, Writer and Researcher
|"I am so excited to tell you that I haven't felt so good in months. The morning following my private session with you, I got up with no pain." |
Paule Mercier, TV Producer
|"The Feldenkrais Method has allowed remarkable improvement in people with problems such as low back pain, strains, muscle spasms, and joint restricitons. I myself hav benefited from greatly improved posture and the ability to walk without pain after only three months." |
Jacqueline Carlson, M.D.
"This is the most sophisticated and effective method I have seen for the prevention and reversal of deterioration of function."
Margaret Mead, PH.D., Anthropologist
