Why Consider the Feldenkrais Method® for Relieving Stress & Anxiety

access news May 15, 2021

Ira Feinstein, Managing Director

The grooves of my anxiety were set at a young age. It was 1987. I was nine years old. My 41-year-old father went to work one morning and never came home. A fatal heart attack. This, alone, would've been traumatic enough if not for my 40-year-old mother's breast cancer diagnosis a year earlier. I spent the next two years until her death waiting to be an orphan.

Free! New Online Lessons

The threat of the coronavirus has activated our ‘sympathetic’ nervous system, and we are feeling it with stress indicators like anxiety, aches and pains, tension, shortness of breath, indigestion, and difficulty sleeping. Our 'fight or flight' response is great in an emergency, but it is not healthy for us to maintain it -continuously- for long periods of time. Prolonged sympathetic activation is exhausting and associated with high blood pressure, high cortisol levels, muscular tension, inflammation, anxiety, and a suppressed immune system. During these unprecedented times, we are offering numerous free lessons to help you maintain a healthy nervous system:
