Physiotherapy Course Summary:
If you are a healthcare professional you will have a model or framework upon which you base your work. If you work in the field of pain management, you will reference many areas of pain science. Part of this will be an interest in neuroscience.
When you use a movement approach you want one which fits with your thinking, movement which can be adapted to each patient and in various settings.
In Feldenkrais we use movement to gently & safely explore whole body self use so people can learn to do what they want.
"Moshe Feldenkrais was one of the first Neuroplasticians' (Norman Doige The Brain's Way of Healing 2015). As early as 1949, Feldenkrais wrote that the brain could form new neural pathways to organize the brain to fit with the surroundings. Modern research supports that brain & system activity is neuroplastic and can change and we can learn through our whole life.
