Feldenkrais Method

The Feldenkrais Method is based on the idea that the brain oversees movement; so, to change your movement, you must change your mind. For a person with Parkinson's, the natural rhythm and flow of perception, feeling, and movement are disrupted and routine behaviors such as walking, speaking, swallowing and more can become difficult. The Feldenkrais Method teaches people movement sequences designed to enhance their functional ability. As you learn better ways to move, you can improve your balance, breathing, cognition, coordination, facial masking, swallowing, and more. The method can be taught privately or in group classes.
