More great news about neuroplasticity!

Pain specialist Dr Michael Moskowitz was 49 when he fell and his thigh bone cracked. His pain was ten out of ten, but then, as he lay motionless waiting for the ambulance, he felt no pain at all.

What a great story, and great practical application of The Feldenkrais Method with a child diagnosed with CP.
Since receiving the pre-approval for Yana, Bill and I have been busy preparing physically, mentally and emotionally for all the exciting and challenging things to come this year. We've been reading books on cerebral palsy, st...

"Use of the arts in healing does not contradict the medical view in bringing emotional, somatic, artistic, and spiritual dimensions to learning. Rather, it complements the biomedical view by focusing on not only sickness and symptoms themselves but the holistic nature of the person.103 When people are invited to work with creative and artistic processes that affect more than their identity with illness, they are more able to “create congruence between their affective states and their conceptual sense making.”104(p53) Through creativity and imagination, we find our identity and our reservoir of healing. The more we understand the relationship between creative expression and healing, the more we will discover the healing power of the arts."
Abstract This review explores the relationship between engagement with the creative arts and health outcomes, specifically the health effects of music...

Thank you +Dane Findley and +Pocket Raphael !
 
Fellow 'plusser +Pocket Raphael inspired my interest in essential oils and now I use them every day. I have frankincense, orange, lemon, thyme, tea tree, and a blend to strengthen veins and another blend to decongest blemished skin. I've been mixing them with apricot kernel oil as a carrier. Yesterday, I added a drop of lemon essential oil to my workout water. Here's the article he wrote on how to get started with oils.
Essential oils are best known for their roles in aromatherapy; their scent can leave one’s mind in either a more relaxed state or a more invigorated state – depending from which plant the oil is based.

Let the principles of Feldenkrais help you achieve your goals for 2015 with ease and grace!
Here we are, at the beginning of another New Year. Everything is new, fresh, and we get to start with a clean slate. Anything is possible in a New Year, including keeping our New Year's Resolutions.However, the resolutions which sounded quite reasonable during the festivities and over-indulgences of the holidays are now staring us in the face. The let down after the holidays, the cold weather, demands of work, family, and the reality of time cons...

Tomorrow's Awareness Through Movement(R) lesson is titled "Bell Hand."
This lesson awakens your tactile senses, improves your manual dexterity, and clarifies the connection between your hands, arms, neck and shoulders.
Ahhhh, Feldenkrais! You just have to try it to believe it!

Ahhh, the healing power of music and dance!
 

 Jaymie Smith:
"In my mind I would imagine myself dancing to the different types of songs playing…doing ballet to classical music or hip hop moves to top hits. Even though I couldn’t physically move, I was still able to let my mind take me away from my boring sofa and into a world of motion and liveliness.

During the times when I felt good enough to be up and about, I would play my music even louder and get some blood flow action going! The best part about dancing at home? If ever I felt pooped out from moving about I could just plop back down on the sofa for a few moments…then get back up and dance again! There was no one around to criticize my techniques or judge how grungy I looked in my pajamas and tussled hair. I wasn’t concerned with anything but letting my body move how it wanted to depending on the music playing and how I was feeling. When I felt sad, my movements would be slow and soothing…sometimes I would just let my tears roll. When I felt excited or angry, my movements would be explosive and chaotic. When I felt happy and silly, I would skip and jump and twirl in a circle…laughing out loud!"

Ready? Set. Dance! My heart speeds up whenever I hear music. Whether it's a popular song on the radio, an acoustic guitar player at a café, or the raucous made-up songs my husband belts our while cooking dinner…the beat, the rhythms, and the melodies instantly makes my heart lighten up and my ...
