Your Life Cannot Be Any Easier Than Your Movements: Healing with Cortical Field Reeducation®, Feldenkrais®, and Brain Plasticity
How we sit, stand, move, or respond to contact with others reflects patterns wired into our nervous systems in infancy. By early childhood, conflicting intentions distort these patterns. Feeling powerless, we attempt to survive and to win love by figuring out “the rules.” The resulting strategies may protect us as children but, deeply ingrained in our muscular postures and movements, they limit our choices as adults. These engrams remain outside of awareness, causing discomfort and dysfunction.
Healing with Cortical Field Reeducation®, Feldenkrais® and Brain Plasticity: Cutting-Edge Professional and Personal Tools for Health Practitioners
The most effective tool in healing injury is engaging the patient’s, client’s, or student’s own nervous system, using your touch to get the attention of the brain, tissues, and immune system. Speaking its kinesthetic/neural language, you bring awareness to what was habitually out of awareness. You create input, the system responds with a shift that you sense. Then you send new input based on that shift. Together, you create lasting change.
Using CFR floor and table work, you will learn to expand your own perceptual net, deepening the clarity and impact of your touch.
