Stress is one of the biggest health concerns in our world today 

Ongoing pain causes tension in the body, and activates your Sympathetic Nervous System, or your fight and flight response. This affects every aspect of your wellbeing. 

The Feldenkrais Method® supports your physical and emotional wellbeing and decreases stress in the body. Practicing Feldenkrais regularly activates the Parasympathetic Nervous System, also known as your rest and digest system,

A valuable aspect of this method is that we explore learning strategies without placing demands on ourselves. If you have difficulty with one side, we work with the other side. If you can’t lie down, you can sit. If nothing wants to move, we work with exercises with your imagination, creating new brain-body neural links through awareness, patterns, holding and tension that can immediately reduce pain.

Feldenkrais empowers you and teaches you how to be at your best, improving your quality of life.

Would you like to feel more comfortable, have less pain, have better posture, greater ease in moving?

Are you interested in improving your balance, flexibility, quality of your breathing, and vitality for life?

Would you like to fully participate in the sports or activities you love – no matter what your age?

The method is not medicine, chiropractic, physio, massage, or yoga. Instead, it is a powerful, innovative and effective physical learning system. You learn to replace old redundant movement patterns (painful or ineffective) with newer, more useful ones. You will discover you can become more skillful and improve the quality of your life as you evolve and mature.

The Feldenkrais Method® stems from a simple reality: once you feel how your body moves, you can use the information to improve the action and create new ones.

Client Review

I have had great success with DonnaRose and Feldenkrais.
She somehow takes the pain away and makes me feel straighter.
I recommended this to a friend who has been suffering pain for 25-years.
She finally went, and she experienced her first pain-free day in such a long time.
She is also now converted.”
