You probably still have no idea what Feldenkrais Method is about after reading the description. Let me share my experience. About 6 years ago I was getting a bit frustrated at work as patients kept returning to us for similar problems (e.g., shoulder impingement, low back pain, neck pain, patello-femoral knee syndrome, etc). I thought we did a pretty good job of teaching our patients about how to strengthen/stretch some muscles to solve their problems, yet they returned to us after a year maybe 2 years. I thought I "fixed" the problems by strengthening weak muscles and stretching tight muscles to restore their imbalance, but they apparently didn't get "fixed." This observation made me very curious as to what's really the root of their problems. Upon my research I found Feldenkrais Method several times. The first time I saw the name, I didn't pay much attention. After having seen the name several times, I had to do more research about it. I read his books and read some articles, but I still didn't know what it was. The only thing I knew was it had something to do with changing habits. I thought habitual way of moving/using ourselves was the root of many problems my patients had. One day I saw a weekend Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement workshop, and I decided to attend to experience it for myself. My first experience was "Wow!! I don't feel pain anywhere in my body!!" I always had some pain but I was so used to having pain that I forgot I had pain until my pain was gone. I felt much taller and my body felt so much lighter and felt as if the gravity decreased. The effect after my very first Awareness Through Movement lesson was so profound. During the lesson I discovered how one body part connected to another body part and how they could work together to decrease stress on one part and distribute it to the whole body. As a result, it felt so much easier to move. I also discovered my movement habits, which of course I wasn't aware of until then. My movement habits just like the majority of other people were such that I wasn't distributing work very well throughout my whole body. At this moment I knew I found what I have been searching for. This really allows us to discover the root of many problems (physical as well as psychological) we may be having and also discover new options so we don't get stuck in our habits. Habits are useful as long as you know they are. However, habits can sometimes create problems when we are not aware of them. As Moshe Feldenkrais (the creator of Feldenkrais Method) said, "if you know what you are doing, you can do what you want."
