New practitioner brings hands-on Feldenkrais to CLINIC’s community

June 24th, 2021 by

Hi! My name is Joshua Elbaum and I am delighted to start offering Feldenkrais Functional Integration® sessions at Clinic Health and Wellness. I am a guild- certified Feldenkrais Practitioner and a Registered Somatic Movement Educator through ISMETA. I teach group Awareness Through Movement® classes and workshops online through organizations such as freeskewl, Midday Movement, and the Neponset River Clubhouse, as well as privately. Before becoming a somatic educator, I worked as an educator for early childhood, grade school, and teens. I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree in Sound Design and have been a performing musician and poet in the Boston area for over a decade, which has given me unique insight on the relationship between creative expression and wellness. I am also a long-time Tai Chi practitioner, and the principles of this tradition are always present in my work. 

The Feldenkrais method is an approach to somatic movement education that is wonderfully effective for reducing chronic muscular pain, improving coordination, and unleashing vitality. In a Functional Integration session with me, you will be guided through a series of gentle movements organized around a functional pattern we are aiming to improve. Through touch and verbal cues, we will guide the nervous system to organize the whole self for easeful, connected movement. As a practitioner, I am interested in getting to know you as a complete person, not just whatever issue is bringing you to my practice. We can use our time to work with anything from easing anxiety to freeing the creative voice.

Initial sessions are 50% off until the end of August. If cost is a barrier, please get in touch and we can make a plan together. You can learn more about me and my work at www.listeninginward.com. If you are interested in experiencing some Feldenkrais before booking, you can sign up for my newsletter and receive a free Awareness Through Movement lesson at www.listeninginward.com/sign-up.
