The Feldenkrais method was developed by Moshe Feldenkrais, an Israeli physicist. It involves gentle stretching and changing posture to teach the body to move naturally and comfortably.

The Feldenkrais method has been used to reduce pain and improve mobility in conditions such as chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and many others, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

Natural Medicines rates effectiveness based on scientific evidence according to the following scale: Effective, Likely Effective, Possibly Effective, Possibly Ineffective, Likely Ineffective, Ineffective, and Insufficient Evidence to Rate.

When practicing the Feldenkrais method, self-awareness is used to determine which bodily movements are easier and take less effort. This practice is thought to reduce pain and improve mobility by increasing awareness, relaxation, and efficient movements.

The Feldenkrais method is LIKELY SAFE when used appropriately. There are no known safety concerns.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There isn't enough reliable information to know if the Feldenkrais method is safe to use when pregnant or breast-feeding. But there's no reason to believe that it might be harmful in women who are pregnant or breast-feeding.

There are no known interactions with medications. Before taking this product, talk with your health professional if you take any medications.

There are no known interactions with herbs and supplements.

There are no known interactions with foods.

There are two main types of the Feldenkrais method: Awareness Through Movement (ATM) and Functional Integration (FI). ATM involves group exercises taught by a Feldenkrais professional. FI is a one-on-one class where a Feldenkrais professional uses their hands to guide a person's movements.

The Feldenkrais method teaches people to move with awareness and to choose the movement that is the easiest and least painful to perform.
