'Essential Sensory Connections'
Learn to protect and soothe your hands and wrists.
How are your hands? Flexible, intelligent, sensitive, and hard-working, our hands and wrists are involved in almost everything we do. They allow us to engage in a wide range of activities, from simple to complex, from petting a dog to playing a musical instrument. All day long, as needed, our hands open and close, push and pull, gather and lift, hold, twist, and turn.
Interestingly, our hands occupy a very large area of our brain’s motor cortex and are innervated by more sensory fibers than any other part of the body. And, because they are connected to our involuntary nervous system, our hands can also reflect our emotional state.
Our hands and wrists can become tense, sore, and stiff as the result of overuse and poor organization. Chronic muscular tension in our hands can easily become an unconscious habitual pattern. If you work with your hands, text or type, play music, or have experienced repetitive strain injuries, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, or neurological impairments, this series of Feldenkrais classes with David Zemach-Bersin will help you.
