Awareness Through Movement (ATM) #Feldenkrais #PhysicalTherapyNYC

Through ATM, individuals learn to recognize detrimental habitual patterns of movement that may be contributing to orthopedic or neurological problems, or inhabiting the ability to perform daily activities. The repetition of these non-strenuous sequences of movements teaches the brain to replace dysfunctional movement and thought patterns with new, more efficient movement options.
As one learns to relax and abandon habitual patterns, increased awareness, flexibility and coordination evolve naturally. Participants typically report feeling more relaxed, energized, taller, lighter, and more balanced in posture. Pain and tension often decrease and breathing becomes easier. #CentralParkPT
