Overview

The Feldenkrais Method: Teaching by Handling is a presentation of the system of Functional Integration devised by the Israeli scientist Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. The Feldenkrais system is a way of handling the body by communicating specific sensations to the central nervous system in order to improve the functions of the motor system. Functional Integration is unique in that it evokes changes in the human brain at a level heretofore thought unachievable by any known educational technique: muscular tonicity -- even spasticity -- is actually modified, the range of movement is enhanced, movement becomes more coordinated, and the overall efficiency and comfort of muscular functioning is increased. In The Feldenkrais Method, Yochanan Rywerant has devised a framework for understanding an immensely subtle and elusive technique for human change. From detailed discussions on manipulation and teaching to basic techniques and other considerations, the author makes this complex system more accessible to both novice and experienced practitioners.
