Can you imagine moving without pain? Do you wish you felt more at home in your own body? Want to learn how to avoid injury and recover more easily?

I offer private sessions, group classes, and workshops where you and I can work together to help you understand why you are experiencing discomfort, and discover how you could be moving more easily and comfortably. The Feldenkrais Method® and Craniosacral Therapy are helpful for:

  • Posture and body mechanics

  • Chronic pain

  • Anxiety and trauma

  • Feeling disconnected from your body

...and much more. See a list of the wide variety of conditions and questions I work with.

"Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself." – Moshe Feldenkrais

Feldenkrais work is the most sophisticated and effective method I have ever seen for the prevention and reversal of deterioration of function.

I have been intrigued by this subtle form of retraining the nervous system, which I recommend to patients whose movement has been restricted by injury, cerebral palsy, stroke, fibromyalgia, or chronic pain. I find it to be much more useful than standard physical therapy. I also believe that the Feldenkrais Method can help older people achieve greater range of motion and flexibility, and help all of us feel more comfortable in our bodies.
