Evidence for the Effectiveness of the Feldenkrais Method

James Stephens and Susan Hillier

practitioners. Almost every practitioner has had personal experience of his or her own pain problems resolving through ATM or functional-integration (FI) experience. FI is similar to ATM in that it involves a slow, gentle exploration of movement possibilities; however, unlike ATM, which is presented verbally to

Perspectives on the Feldenkrais Method

Roger Russell

Feldenkrais Method® includes two approaches: group lessons of Awareness Through Movement® (ATM) and Feldenkrais’s individual method of Functional Integration® (FI). Feldenkrais lessons reflect how the embodied sense of self is grounded in movement. The lessons can be adapted for any person, at any time across
