Erin Ferguson, MA, GCFP, brings over seventeen years of advanced movement studies to her practice. She also brings personal experience of seeking a wide range of help for her own lifelong chronic pain. People usually come to Erin with a chronic movement limitation or physical complaint after they have tried everything and feel desperate and need hope. So the first step is reducing pain. If you feel trapped in painful, repetitive patterns, Erin can help unfold new perspectives, new inspiration, and new options.
Erin values non-judgmental acceptance of where you are in the moment. She will not correct you or fix you. Instead, she will work with you to find comfort and stability within your unique history. Erin will work with you in two ways:
- to help you sense greater skeletal support
- to discover new functional possibilities
She will then guide you to incorporate these possibilities into your life.
about dr. moshe feldenkrais
The Feldenkrais Method was developed by physicist and Judo teacher Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. It is based on principles of physics, martial arts, biomechanics, and an understanding of learning and human development.
Dr. Feldenkrais developed this innovative approach to movement re-education when he was incapacitated by a sports-related injury and given little chance of ever walking without pain. He applied his knowledge of anatomy, physiology, physics, and engineering, as well as his mastery of martial arts, to restore his own functioning and, later, the functioning of many others.
