I had long refrained from writing about this method of countering pain because I thought it was some sort of New Age gobbledygook with no scientific basis. Boy, was I wrong!
– Jane Brody, New York Times personal health columnist
This week the New York Times published an article in print and online called Trying the Feldenkrais Method for Chronic Pain, by Jane Brody. Brody has been writing about personal health for the Times for over 40 years, and it’s fantastic news for our community that she’s taken an interest in Feldenkrais and benefitted so much. She acknowledges her misconceptions (above) as she begins; let’s hope her article will help other people understand it better!
The article is a quick read and does a nice job summarizing the method and her experience as a new student.
