Let me state this first. Chronic pain is a result of how you move and carry yourself.
For many, it’s not easy to get the idea of how you carry and move yourself. In other words, movements are mostly done in automation and we aren’t really aware of them.
In fact, most of basic movements like standing, walking, reaching forward, etc, are done automatically. The brain programs the movement and memorise it to make it a habit. Habit is great because if we had to think all the time how to walk like a 12 months old baby, we can achieve nothing in a day! But you could say, any chronic problems is a sign that your movement pattern (=habit) is not suitable for you.
Feldenkrais lessons are made to Re-program the movement pattern. In order to do that, the brain needs to refine what you are and how you are build. You’ll be finding that by sensing through your nervous system and creating new neurological pathways.
Most of the back problem is coming from lack of clarity in the pelvis and hip joints. Neck problem often comes also from not knowing where the pelvis is, and lack of understanding how the head connects to the rest of the body.
In this course, we’ll make it in two parts and take time to clarify these things. The first part, we’ll focus more on pelvis and hip joints. The second part will be shoulders and neck. It’ll create better understanding if you attend both, of course 🙂
