about dr. moshe feldenkrais
The method was developed by physicist and Judo teacher Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. It is based on principles of physics, martial arts, biomechanics, and theories 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.
