Article – Falling For Feldenkrais: A Patient’s Progress

Article by Michael Sigman in the Huffington Post on  June 16, 2010 10:30 AM

For an obsessive swimmer who craves the endorphins, the past two years of failed therapies for a bum shoulder have been a bummer. I’ve been acupunctured, acupressured, cracked, Rolfed, electro-stimulated, nutritionized, lasered, therapized, osteopathed, hypnotized, rheumatologized, cortisoned, massaged, medicated, iced, heated, surgerized and more. Much more.

All these treatments have yielded benefits, except for the “much pain, no gain” neck-wrenchings of a certain Dr. Hertz. Our brief relationship ended when, after waiting an hour, I was asked to reschedule an appointment because Donald Sutherland had arrived. I love Donald – he was a super doctor in M*A*S*H! – but not that much. I would happily have stepped aside for his son Kiefer, a.k.a. 24’s Jack Bauer, though, so he could save civilization as we know it before the next commercial break.

But it always seemed the healer was doing something to me or instructing me to adhere to a specific, do-or-die nutrition, exercise or stretching regimen. Some gave interesting advice that didn’t quite address the problem at hand, like the enigmatic Zen acupuncturist who said little during our sessions except “You must eat very slowly and chew each bite at least 40 times before swallowing.”  for more go to – Article
