Repetitive Strain Injury — FELDENKRAIS, an Antidote to RSI, Back, Neck and Shoulder Pain

This material is available as a private Functional Integration session at my office, or as an Awareness Through Movement class. Schedule permitting, I will create an in-service workshop or class for a group of ten or more people, at your location. Call for details.
Description: Improve your ability to sense and change poor body organization that contributes to repetitive strain injuries, stiffness and pain. If you have chronic discomfort, this information can help you intervene so your body can heal. If you experience intermittent tension, or pain which comes and goes, start now to prevent injury and feel better fast. Using the Feldenkrais Method, you will learn healthier movement patterns that decrease excessive effort associated with strain. Improve your self-awareness, and learn to make adjustments in your actions that both heal and prevent unhealthy tension patterns from progressing into a chronic injury.
Offered as Feld-01 at Stanford University, for Stanford employees
Friday, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Location varies by term.


Sitting (or Standing) Comfortably at Your Computer Station

This material is available for my Functional Integration clients, by appointment, at your workstation. Contact me to schedule. Travel fee applies over 15 miles.
Description: Regardless of good ergonomics, many people continue to suffer from pain and discomfort at work. In this customized session at your workstation, you will learn to apply proper body mechanics to alleviate pain and improve skeletal support and awareness. I will help you adopt healthier movement habits for common work place actions, to take the strain out of working at your computer.
Offered as Sccs-02 at Stanford University, for Stanford employees


Back Fitness, PE 224

Material from this college class is adaptable as private coaching at my office, in combination with Feldenkrais sessions.
