Using less effort and stress you can increase mobility in any function such as rolling over, sitting, standing, walking, turning, reaching, etc. Based on The Feldenkrais® Method of Somatic Education.

These preliminary findings are very encouraging and form the basis for future research on the role of FMs using larger numbers of participants and credible control groups.
