What touches you?

‘the ship is going down and I can only hold your hand’
a title I once used for a performance installation

Big things happen, small things happen
Life is full of gestures
We touch each other, or not

When a Feldenkrais practitioner touches you in a one to one session, they are sensing and noticing the way you move, the way your muscles and bones are organised. This touch encourages you to listen to your physical sensations. As you do this, your nervous system starts to take in new information about yourself. The practitioner gently and quietly introduces new ways or pathways for your movement, enabling you to let go of tensions and anxiety and assist the body to move more freely.

This touch is gentle, non intrusive and assists your own learning to take place.

It is worth being touched!
