Neuroscience and the Brain's Plasticity

Moshe Feldenkrais was ahead of his time. In the 1950's and 60's,  science   was not accepting the idea that the adult brain can change. It professed the centuries-old notion of a mechanistic brain, viewing it more like a  hard-wired and fixed system. In contrast, Moshe Feldenkrais based his work on the premise of the intrinsic ability of the human being to learn, not just at the beginning of life but throughout our lifespan and on the ability of the brain to change, to create new neural pathways in response to sensory input. In his days, this was quite revolutionary. 


Since the 90's, and early 2000's, science has fully recognized the neuroplasticity of the brain. It has been demonstrated through many research and case studies that the brain has the ability to be drastically rewired.


Today, The Feldenkrais Method is one of the most effective approach to improving human functioning. It's basis of tapping into the brain's ability to learn is proving extremely beneficial to more and more people around the world.
