Back pain plagues an estimated 570 million people around the globe. It is sometimes accompanied by nerve pain that is felt in the buttocks or one or both legs and can cause numbness in the feet. This type of referred nerve pain is commonly known as sciatica.

The sciatic nerve is the longest and largest nerve in our body. If it is pinched or compressed, the sciatic nerve can become inflamed and cause discomfort. Sciatic pain can be extremely uncomfortable and is frequently not experienced where the impingement originates, but further down the neural pathway.
Fortunately, doing Feldenkrais lessons can help us to reduce most cases of sciatic pain. In this on-demand program, Feldenkrais Trainer and Director of Feldenkrais Access, David Zemach-Bersin, will share a set of specific Feldenkrais lessons that can help you avoid, reduce, and eliminate sciatic pain. These gentle lessons will give you new ways to maintain a healthy, well-organized back. You will learn how and why sciatica develops and what you can do to protect yourself from having sciatic attacks in the future.

"I have a long history of backache, sometimes so severe that all I can do is rest on heat. I've dabbled in Feldenkrais for many years and knew how well I felt after each lesson, but I'd never managed to be consistent. So, I finally decided to see what would happen if I were to do a lesson daily. The change in my body was nothing short of miraculous. From having back pain every day, to none! Now, my back often feels decades younger than 74."
