Book Description

January 1, 2003
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, learn how the author has devised a framework for understanding an immensely subtle and elusive technique for human change.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful book on how the Feldenkrais method works April 26, 2008
The Feldenkrais method is an amazing method of retraining the body. It can cure chronic muscular or joint pain, repetitive stress injuries (this was why I was led to it), or just cause you to have a more supple, stronger body ---all with no exercise or painful stretches.

This book is not an introduction to that method---the book by Moshe Feldenkrais called "Awareness through Movement" is the standard introduction. Or do a google search for "Feldenkrais FAQ". In fact, a book will rarely do justice to the method and the best introduction would be to take lessons from a good teacher.

But if you get intrigued about the method and begin to wonder about its technical details, this book is perhaps the most accessible account.
Rywerant was one of Feldenkrais's earliest students and is today in his 80s.

Excellent but advanced and highly technical. I would not recommend it for recently graduated practicians.
