The "body image" is the way a persons body feels to them. However, there is sufficient evidence to prove that a distorted body image can be shown in people with pain, especially chronic pain. Among the evidence of distortion of the neural representations of body image, the primary sensory and primary motor cortex seem to be the areas of focus and with that comes hope for improvement through RE-INHIBITION of previously disinhibited neural networks.
Today, we will discuss the body image as well as approaches to therapy/training that assist in re-mapping a body image that may be causing pain or performance issues.
Our guest today is Todd Hargrove. Todd practiced law as an attorney in Seattle for 7 years after graduating from the University of Washington. Leaving law, Todd graduated from the Rolf Institute in Boulder Colorado and is now in his third year of training to be a Feldenkrais practitioner.
