The Feldenkrais® Method is a mind/body integration technique that uses movement to enhance the communication between the brain and the body. It releases tension and stress, improves co-ordination and self-awareness and brings us back to our natural harmonious way of functioning.
The method, named after its founder Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, was begun in the 1950s and has developed and evolved since that time. It is widely practised and highly regarded in Europe and North America.
Increased awareness corrects poor habitual patterns of movement. Improved physical habits lessen undue strain on joints and muscles, enhance physical and mental performance, and lead to a more positive self-image and better overall health.
About David Sullivan:
David Sullivan graduated from the University of Auckland with first class honours in Mechanical Engineering. Suffering from chronic lower back pain, he was diagnosed at 17 as having scoliosis. He tried many methods, conventional and unconventional, to alleviate this problem with no success.
David was introduced to the Feldenkrais® Method in the form of rehabilitation after a chest injury through a skiing accident in Switzerland in 1994. The method not only helped mobility, but also eventually fully alleviated his lower back, and even knee pain.
His 4 year training took place in Germany and Australia. He worked as a Feldenkrais® Practitioner in Munich before returning to Auckland in 2001. He is currently president of the New Zealand Feldenkrais® Guild.
