5.0 out of 5 stars It really works!, 25 Jun 2011
This review is from: Awareness Heals: The Feldenkrais Method for Dynamic Health (Paperback)
When I first started to read the book I wondered if something so simple could really work.
Sounded like "too good to be true".

But the "what if it works" question kept bugging me and we got together with a group to try it out.
And it works!!

Great book and easy to follow exercises and lots of interesting little stories about the author's time
with Moshe Feldenkrais.

Looked into what the author does now and he has developed a system on top of what he describes in his
book - FlexAware. If you rather follow verbal instructions, he has a DVD available for FlexAware.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clarity, 15 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Awareness Heals: The Feldenkrais Method for Dynamic Health (Paperback)
This is the most helpful book for getting an understanding of Feldenkrais/ bodywork I have found .
It is well written and the author does not waste words.
The instructions are easy to follow and the explanations are a model of clarity.
It is difficult to use words to bring awareness to internal movements of the body but Steven Shafarman has a real talent for doing it .
He helps your awareness to increase by focusing your attention on areas of your body and gradually brings you to the point where you can experience physically that which he has been explaining with words .
There are only six lessons but they are detailed and after gaining an understanding from this book it can be applied to the lessons in other books .
Excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use and it works, 4 April 2011
This review is from: Awareness Heals: The Feldenkrais Method for Dynamic Health (Paperback)
Found the images and instructions easy to use, applying specific exercises from the book helped to eliminate the headaches and neurialgic pains I'd had for several months in just a couple of weeks.

This review is from: Awareness Heals: The Feldenkrais Method for Dynamic Health (Paperback)
Good clear help and instructions. Could do with more visuals and fewer words but otherwise very good. Photographs would help.

4.0 out of 5 stars A way to increased overall awareness, 25 May 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Awareness Heals: The Feldenkrais Method for Dynamic Health (Paperback)
Awareness Heals is an excellent book giving a long list of exercises to get you back in touch with your body, build your awareness and relieve stress.
I bought this book as a complement to Thomas Hannas “Somatics” which gives background history with a series of illustrations, but may not have the range of exercises you are looking for.
