Manitoba Lyme April Support Meeting
Wednesday April 17 @ 6:30
St. Boniface Library - 131 Provencher Blvd, Winnipeg
Using the Feldenkrais Method(R) for pain management, and how it enhances the connection between the brain and the body.
The Manitoba Lyme Disease Group is a support group for Manitobans that have Lyme Disease and other tick-borne illnesses. We also welcome friends and family of those affected because they too need to understand the disease(s) and receive support.
At this meeting, we're going to have Gisèle St. Hilaire in from Sunyata Movement Studio and she will be introducing the Feldenkrais Method as a tool in pain management. She will explain how this could be helpful to someone with tick-borne illnesses, and she will give us a lesson on the Feldenkrais Method(R).
The Feldenkrais Method(R) of somatic education, developed over several decades by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, is a progressive approach to understanding human functioning and for improving physical and mental performance.
It utilizes movement and attention to improve our natural ability to discover, learn, change and continue to develop throughout our lives. It can be applied by anyone wanting to improve the quality of his or her everyday life.
By discovering your habits in movement, you can learn better ways to co-ordinate your actions, promoting greater ease and wellbeing. Instead of teaching the “right way” to move, you acquire more choices of how you might do what you want to do. In other words - you develop greater resilience.
More than this, when you increase your choices for how you could do what you want, you find the most efficient, effective, comfortable ways of acting given your unique structure, and the unique context or situation you find yourself in.
