Feldenkrais Based Movement
Identifying the source of discomfort and stress is a first step in learning how to release it.
A Feldenkrais lesson will help you sense the contrast between the areas of pain/discomfort and relaxation in the body.
Then you will discover how to allow your body to release unnecessary tensions that may be a painful obstacle to moving a particular area of the body.
Tai Chi Chuan
Tai Chi Chuan is a way of learning energetic principles, through a form or pattern of movements. When done on a regular basis, Tai Chi helps any person develop a more grounding and poise.
Principles are studied first while standing or doing very simple movements that require a coordination between the movement of the pelvis, spine and the four limbs.
As the student progresses in his practice he develops a sense of where he holds stress and tension that present obstacles to moving through the particular form being studied.
Rubenfeld Synergy Method
RSM introduces a means to connect sensations experienced as the body moves, with more intangible parts of ourselves: emotions and energy.
Floor movement sequences or table work, using either Feldenkrais or Alexander techniques, promote awareness of discomfort and blockage in the body.
Using verbal interventions, an RSM practitioner can help you discover, through dialogue, touch & movement, the significance of the sensation of pain or discomfort in a shoulder, for instance.
In time, you will be able to understand the source of the physical and/or emotional & energy distress associated with pain or discomfort.
