About Moshe Feldenkrais
The Feldenkrais Method ® was created by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984), an Israeli physicist, engineer, and Judo expert. After a crippling knee injury while working in England during WWII, he sought a way to heal himself as surgery was not a viable option. Through a combination of science and martial arts, along with his study of human motor development, he was able to rehabilitate his knee. Through the post-war decades his work spread throughout the world to become the method of neuromuscular learning we know today as the Feldenkrais Method ® .
