"For the first time, I can really feel how my hands connect with my whole self."
Have you been taking care of your hands?
Certainly, they have been taking care of you, as they make it possible for you to brush your teeth, button your shirt, open the door, type, chop vegetables, hold a phone, wash the dishes, drive a car. Because your hands are so important -biologically speaking- to your survival, more space is taken up in your brain by neural connections that involve your hands, than any other part. Your hands are flexible and dexterous, capable of both delicate and strong movements.
However, without meaning to, many of us put unnecessary strain on our hands, which can cause them to become sore, tense, strained and injured.
The two Feldenkrais lessons taught by David Zemach-Bersin in this program are designed to access key neural connections in a therapeutic way to improve the comfort of your hands and wrists and promote a relaxed, ‘parasympathetic state’ throughout your nervous system and whole self.
Easy to do but neurologically profound, these exercises will reduce stiffness and unnecessary muscular effort in your hands, improve circulation, and promote improvements in your overall physical and emotional organization.
Two-hour program includes:
- Two full-length Feldenkrais exercises
- One Q&A session
- Lifetime access to the program
- Option to download videos
