The Feldenkrais® Method is a somatic technique developed by Israeli atomic physicist Moshe Feldenkrais. The Feldenkrais® Method tends towards being a form of self-education as opposed to a manipulative therapy.
The Feldenkrais® method aims to improve movement repertoire, aiming to expand and refine the use of the self through awareness, in order to reduce pain or limitations in movement, and promote general well-being.
Feldenkrais® believed that health is founded on good function. He asserted that his method of body/mind exploration improved functioning (health) by making individuals more aware: "What I am after is more flexible minds, not just more flexible bodies".
