Feldenkrais and Your Needs

Individuals with a variety of physical needs, and the desire to move and feel better, have worked with me over the past 40 years. 95% succeed at achieving permanent relief from nagging, chronic, and limiting physical pain. My job is to facilitate through gentle touch, passive movement, and self-generated movement, a learning process that leads to:

  • Improved posture
  • Improved breathing
  • Improved flexibility
  • Improved mobility
  • Improved self-awareness
  • Improved physical/ mental performance levels
  • Improved insight into how pain is created
  • Pain disappears when muscles are freed to work optimally and your skeleton bears your weight effectively

Results occur sometimes very quickly when students practice movements on their own in between our sessions. Feldenkrais at HomeTM audio products are ideally suited to enhance the results achieved during the individual sessions.

  • By exploring the detailed and non-habitual movements on these audio downloads, you are awakening the hidden reserves of your brain, you are stimulating it to create new neuro-pathways.

Here’s what people have to say

In my opinion, the approach to patient care which Moshe Feldenkrais developed is one of the most innovative systems of our time. I have personally observed many positive changes in the patients Eileen has worked with. I utilize many of the movement lessons in my own treatments and home programs and highly recommend the use of these tapes for assisting individuals to improve their conditions and movement patterns.

On numerous occasions a visit to Eileen Bach-y-Rita has saved me a week in bed in pain. Often, after just one visit, what l thought was an injured muscle lets go and the pain is gone. She has an impeccable sense of where one is holding tension
(often not where one feels the pain), a gentle touch, and a profound understanding of Feldenkrais… seems to produce magical results. Now, I find I am beginning to learn how to avoid muscle strains, not just heal them….

I have tried several techniques to help my recovery from a stroke. By far the best, most rapid, lasting and effective method is that developed by Moshe Feldenkrais and, in my case, applied by Eileen Bach-y-Rita… Needless to say, I am a believer.
