“In 2009 I had a series of falls while hiking. My rehab progressed well but I noticed a new feeling of doubt and fear of repeating the devastating falls that broke my arm in three places. I worked with Elizabeth first with Tai Chi and then with Feldenkrais and learned that my lack of awareness would sabotage my hiking. With her help I have regained my confidence. Thank you, Elizabeth.”

The Feldenkrais Method® of Somatic Education
Andrew Weil, MD
What is Dr. Weil's view regarding Feldenkrais?
Dr. Weil often recommends trying the Feldenkrais Method for the treatment of any kind of neurological injury or insult, especially since it claims success in training the nervous system in developing and utilizing new pathways around areas of damage. Feldenkrais has specifically demonstrated success in helping to rehabilitate stroke victims. It is also effective with head injuries and other neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis. Feldenkrais can be an effective part of an integrative-medicine approach to any painful condition from degenerative arthritis to fibromyalgia. Because it can help a person feel more comfortable within his or her body, Dr. Weil also feels that Feldenkrais can be an effective adjunct to psychotherapy and the treatment of mood disorders.
When I started attending Elizabeth's class over four years ago, my recovery process from back problems had stagnated. Now I continue to learn to move more easily and consider myself healthy. I thank Elizabeth for a huge contribution to that recovery.
I have never attended a class that remained effective over such a long time period. Her ridiculously deep level of knowledge allows each class to be tailored to the participants' needs. The class is not only useful for the improvement of standing, sitting, and movement but she expands it into practical application, including a short analysis of the applicable anatomy and physiology. Elizabeth is professional, entertaining, available and attentive. She stays on track, never wastes my time and responds thoughtfully to questions. A bonus is the long-term attendance of many of my classmates, creating an atmosphere of camaraderie, even friendship.
I attended Bones 1, 2, and 3 from other trainers, and then from Elizabeth. In my opinion, the quality of her sessions and her level of expertise easily equal those of the Bones for Life® Trainers whose classes I attended before hers.
