BODY AWARENESS AND MOVEMENT TRAINING? For me it started way back, in 1973, with a motorbike wreck. This led to 40 odd years of guarding my right ankle. To be finally fixed by Feldenkrais, where everyone else failed. This resulted in my passionate interest in body-awareness and body movement training, especially when it comes to the challenges of aging!
It also resulted in the realization that no-one I know has heard of Feldenkrais – it’s not even in spell checker. It’s the name that accounts for this problem – Yoga is just a nice, catchy word!
Surely, a framework, or simple guide, for modality selection could be generated, for the neophyte. Such a guide might be based on the types of issues involved – I always advise people to start with simple, body-awareness training (it’s essentially free!), and to think the problem through, before rushing off to take pills or spend a fortune.
I’m especially concerned about people on a limited budget, who can’t afford 10 trips to a physical therapist or other medical professional, as they recover from an injury.
As you age, and as I know, money is an increasingly challenging issue, later in life!
Imagine, you don’t have a lot of money, no health insurance (or a high deductible), and you pull a calf or hamstring, or develop morning heel pain (‘so-called plantar fasciitis).
Where to start?
How to fix it, but you still have to go to work.
What’s the answer?
Surely a cost effective guide could be created, without risking lawsuits.
I wonder what all the Physical Therapists, Family Doctors, Sports Physicians, Podiatrists, Chiropractors, Yoga Instructors, Pilates, Continuum, Alexander Technique, and Dance teachers, and massage therapists, think about this idea?
How about plans for $0, $500 and $2000?
I have my ideas, but what are yours?
I want to help people avoid unnecessary immobility, as they age!
I see these struggles, all around me!
