' I have two hats on when I'm working with individuals. The first hat is a Sherlock Holmes one; the Feldenkrais Method inspires curiosity and an openness to see what unfolds between the client and practitioner, and we unravel the mystery together.
The other hat is of a tour guide. As I teach groups, I get to take people on one of the most exotic explorations possible; their own selves.'
I became a massage therapist 32 years ago; I really appreciated using my hands as healing tools. 15 years later, I came to an impass because I wanted more tools to impart to clients so they could make improvements themselves...for several years I searched for something that was the right fit. In 1998, I began a four-year Feldenkrais training and was thrilled that this was such incredible work. I was improving in tango, roller-blading, running, and in the process free of pain. Awareness leads to improved movement, and as we move well we can have the fullest life we want.
In September 2013, I complete another tool to my tool-box. Somatic Experiencing is a body-oriented approach to trauma. It's based on the realization that human beings have an innate ability to overcome the effects of trauma, and they can return to a greater sense of aliveness, relaxation and wholeness. Somatic Experiencing is an amazing compliment to the Feldenkrais Method.
