Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Based on the work of her mentor, mind-body pioneer Moshe Feldenkrais, dancer and clinical psychologist Baniel developed a program she has used with clients, including professional musicians, athletes and learning-disabled children. Articulating and amplifying Feldenkrais's system, Baniel's method consists of nine ways to overcome dysfunctional mind-body connections that prevent people of all ages from feeling life-enhancing vitality and optimal health: moving with attention; turning on the "learning switch"; experiencing subtlety; breaking harmful habits through variation; living more slowly; setting flexible goals; firing enthusiasm; using the imagination; and cultivating awareness. Citing research into neurogenesis, Baniel contends that brain growth can be stimulated with such simple yet paradoxical shifts as making gains without pain, reducing force to increase power and solving problems by daydreaming. By taking quizzes, then doing gentle physical movements and brain exercises, readers can test Baniel's theories for themselves, as well as read personal success stories. Baniel's compassionate and empowering approach will leave readers, particularly those with problems defying traditional treatment (chronic pain, mental and emotional trauma) eager to forge positive communication pathways between the body and the mind.
