Feldenkrais Institute Northwest

Movement Therapy in Woodinville for Chronic Pain, Stroke, Special Needs Children, and Accident Rehabilitation.

I use the Feldenkrais Method® to assist clients in dealing with a Stroke, Chronic Pain, Accident Rehabilitation, and for working with Special Needs Children. I do this by helping them learn a new function, refine an existing function, or regain a function that has been lost.

In basic terms, a function is something that you may need for survival (like eating), or something you might wish to do better, like walking.

Learning a new function could apply to someone learning a new sport, or in helping a special needs child learn to crawl, sit, and walk. 

Refining a function could apply to seniors learning to improve their posture to help preserve their joints in standing and walking, or to anyone who has chronic pain and wishes to learn to use their body in a more comfortable way. 

Regaining a lost function applies to those who have lost a function due to a Stroke or Brain Injury, Multiple Sclerosis, or physical accident. Helping clients learn to sit more comfortably, feed themselves, walk again, and regain an increased level of confidence and independence are examples of my daily work. You can read more here about My Approach to Care and my thoughts on Adaptation.
