The Feldenkrais Method is an extremely powerful system of self-education through movement.
- It Improves Movement — By focusing on correcting poor movement patterns and eliminating inefficiencies in the way we use our bodies, Feldenkrais Method dove-tails nicely with other complimentary therapies for compulsive finger pickers such as yoga practice and other movement therapies.
- It Increases Awareness — Feldenkrais belongs with a host of other natural treatments for compulsive picking that focus on the mind-body connection — such as body psychotherapy. These treatments increase awareness of the body’s poor patterns of movement in space, thereby providing opportunities to improve.
The two major modalities of the Feldenkrais Method are:
- Awareness Through Movement (ATM)
- Functional Integration
By working with a certified Feldenkrais teacher, a student with a compulsive picking habit will learn awareness of his movement patterns that keep his fingers bleeding and raw. He will also begin to ingrain better patterns of movement by participating in guided exercises with his teacher.
