My work with the Feldenkrais Method® can greatly relieve low back pain, one of the most common areas of chronic pain in the body. In helping people become more aware of how they can use their bones for support in movement,relief can be immediate.
“I can’t move my head very far to the left,” my client M said as she turned her head to demonstrate her problem.
M’s neck stuttered slowly through the turn, like a gear mechanism with something caught in its cogs. Her eyes narrowed and squinted with a willful look. Cords of neck muscle fluttered like a taut rope along a flagpole banging against the metal. Her head stopped halfway before her chin approached her shoulder. I could sense an invisible wall of resistance. Something refused for her neck to go further.
