REVIEWS ABOUT MOSHE FELDENKRAIS
Margaret Mead, Ph.D., Anthropologist
The Feldenkrais® Method is the most sophisticated and effective method I have seen for the prevention and reversal of deterioration of function. We're condemning millions of people to a deteriorated old age that's not necessary.
Dr. Marla Luskin, Professor, Emory University Medical School
As a neuroscientist interested in the development and plasticity of the nervous system, it is gratifying to see how the Feldenkrais® Method demonstrates these principles. The Feldenkrais® Method has also greatly improved my personal quality of life – physically and emotionally – by reducing the restrictions and limitations I thought were permanent due to multiple sclerosis.
Dr Jill Bolte Taylor, Neuroscientist, author of "My Stroke of Insight"
I used the Feldenkrais® technique to help recover my temporal mandibular joint on the side of my craniotomy. It was a lifesaver.
Professor Karl Pribram, MD, PhD, Neuroscientist, Stanford University, Nobel Prize nominee
The Feldenkrais® Method is not just pushing muscles around, but changing things in the brain itself so that the patient can gradually adjust his whole muscular dysfunction to what we call a normal image…Feldenkrais transmits the image, and you organize your brain to meet it.
Elmer Green, Ph.D., Menninger Foundation
One of the most exciting developments in the field of mind-body coordination.
Bernard Lake, M.D., Cardiologist
The system developed by Dr Feldenkrais…has as much potential for understanding the mind/body relationship as Einstein’s general theory of relativity had for physics.
Neil Young, in his book "Waging Heavy Peace"
For a year or more, I stopped walking because my feet were hurting. At a doctor's advice, I tried wearing special inserts in my shoes, but they threw off my balance. Eventually I learned from various body workers on the Big Island, most notably a Feldenkrais® practitioner there, that bad posture was putting a lot of strain on my feet. It's amazing what you can learn when you step outside the realm of people who are selling you something and into the realm of people who treat the body, not the symptom.
Martin Rossman, M.D., Author
Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais has developed a system that is many years ahead of conventional medical understanding.
Peter Brook, Film and Stage Director
Feldenkrais has studied the body in movement with a precision that I have found nowhere else.
Chris Boyd, former US Track National Champion (5,000 meters)
I can't say enough good things about the Feldenkrais® Method.
