The FM was developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984), a man ahead of his time, when he tore the cruciate ligaments in his left knee while playing soccer in the 1930s. His knee was very unstable and he had to teach himself how to move without further damage. With his background in martial arts, his Diploma of Mechanical Engineering and his Doctorate in Physics, gained in Paris, he experimented with very small, slow non-habitual movements and gradually found easier, more efficient ways to move and ease his knee pain. He was able to move well within the limitations of the damage to his knee, working on himself or having lessons from the Practitioners he had trained until he died in 1984. He established that functioning well depends on our internal understanding of ourselves and our actions. The FM cultivates a uniquely human capacity for self-improvement, through the conscious exploration of natural human movement.
Many people think this is one of the most exciting educational and therapeutic methods developed in our time. It is thoroughly researched and is based on Neuroplasticity and the Developmental sequences.
‘Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais’ Method will be of great benefit to all of the humanity. From my own experience, I know the remarkable results achieved.’
