Don’t wait until you are looking too old, aging too fast, and living with chronic pain. Better to stay youthful, agile, and strong with a reverse aging walk of your own. But, even if you already have problems, it’s not too late. Here is just one of many stories of people who have learned the benefits of a “Reverse Aging Walk.”

“It’s old age. It’s arthritis. Learn to live with it.” These are some of the words of discouragement I had received about my chronic pain. A neck too stiff for driving, aching shoulders, burning mid back, sore lower back, unsteady gait, and tender knee were all the old injuries that came back to haunt me, limit my mobility, and dash dreams of an active life.

Luckily a friend recommended I try working with Betsy Wetzig. After one class of Coordination Pattern™ Training and Dynamics and a week of doing the suggested exercises on my own, my pain began to recede! Now, I have been attending Betsy’s group class for two years. I have stood in the kitchen pain free while chopping veggies. My knee is much more stable as I carry a heavy basket of clean clothes up the stairs. My neck is turning farther and with more ease as I drive. I am now dreaming of a brighter more active future!

My whole body is improving. Recently, my massage therapist mentioned to me that my bunion is improving because there is much more movement in the big toe joint and the toe is at a better angle. The large muscles in my body are stronger while at the same time more loose. My muscles and skin are more firm. The exercises are paying off. It is much easier for me to move and I am back to walking for exercise. Other people are noticing my improvements. Bernice

The Feldenkrais Method ®


Reconnect with Your Natural Abilities to Move, Think, and Feel

Experiencing back, neck, shoulder, or knee pain? Having trouble focusing your attention? Not enjoying activities anymore? Gentle Feldenkrais lessons can help you reconnect with your overall well being.

Learning to move with less effort makes daily life easier. The Feldenkrais Method focuses on the relationship between movement and thought allowing Increased mental awareness and creativity to accompany the physical improvements. Everyone can benefit from the Feldenkrais Method because you will learn to fully use yourself and this self learning leads to full, dynamic living.

The Feldenkrais Method is a gentle and effective approach that helps with:
• Pain reduction and relief from chronic muscle, joint or headaches
• Recovery of lost movement abilities
• Recovery from surgery
• Neurological conditions such as MS or stroke, neuropathy, etc.
• Improved breathing and sleep
• The ability to shift habits of movement and holding – which may have begun as a response to your injury or condition and are now a source of pain or restriction in themselves
• A range of skills to help yourself recover function in your daily life

After attending Feldenkrais classes, one has the experience of the body feeling completely different – much more free and pleasant.

Positive change doesn’t come from using willpower, strength, or holding the body in certain ways to move. These behaviors and attitudes caused the problem in the first place.

The Feldenkrais Method teaches how to allow the body to do its own thing according to a natural flow principle. It is all about slowly repeating simple moves while intuitively searching for an easier way. This method of rehabilitation is designed to change movements of the body by re-training the nervous system.

Feldenkrais offers particular benefits for all kinds of people who move for a living or enjoyment: entertainers, athletes, movement teachers, & health care providers, etc.

Carol Siddiqi, a Guild Certified Feldenkrais practitioner has been teaching Feldenkrais since 1999 following a 4 year training program. Carol is also a certified instructor of Kripalu Yoga and Deepak Chopra’s Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga.
