This is the first of three part series that was developed specifically for those who have suffered from overuse injuries and hand and arm pain (e.g. RSI carpal tunnel thoracic outlet syndrome etc). The focus of these lessons is on becoming aware of how dynamic support from the entire skeleton can support the movement of our shoulders, arms and hands.
These lessons are used extensively to help clients develop comfort with fine motor coordination of the hands and fingers at the Feldenkrais Center for Movement. They are specifically designed to help prevent hand and arm injuries and to alleviate painful conditions of the hand and arm.
