    Amber's Story

    in Health

    This week we are speaking with Amber Adams, a Broadway Sound Technician, who now is in private practice offering her clients the Feldenkrais Method and has also been trained in Pilates. 

    As she tells us that she works with two primary groups of people:

    Adults who struggle with chronic pain,or have an old injury/surgery that never seemed to be quite right afterward;

     Children with Special Needs, ranging from Autism to ADD to Cerebral Palsy to survivors of brain tumors.


    In both categories she says, “we look at ways that they are unconsciously moving that are contributing to the their chronic pain and find more efficient solutions….many people who have ongoing pain also have emotional trauma associated with it…our work helps them experience their body as an ally again,not an enemy”.

    Feldenkrais and QiGong: Embodied Presence and Healing

    in Lifestyle

    Thousands of years old, Qi Gong, derives from many shamanistic practices that are even older. In these long-ago times, everyone did everything in accordance with nature. They observed harmony in the spiraling cycles of degeneration and regeneration. They became aware of this same spiraling in the human experience. Over time, the spiraling relationship between humans and nature became known in Chinese thought as The Five Element Theory. This same ancient body of thought recognizes all disease as “dis-ease”—as stemming from an imbalance of Qi. Western practices tend to treat disease after it manifests. Qi Gong arose to cultivate the vital life force that would ward off dis-ease by addressing imbalances as they evolved. Fostering harmony creates wellness: in your body; between your body and your mind; in your connection to others; and in your connection to nature. Nature cannot exist separate from your body, your mind, or from other living beings. This is a truth in Qi Gong as well as in Feldenkrais.
    Special guest Carrie Lafferty has been in the healing arts exploring her own inner world and guiding others to do the same for over 26 years. She is a Physical Therapist, Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner, Master Qi Gong Teacher and has studied core shamanism with Michael Harner, Nicki Scully and indigenous shamans in Guatemala, Mexico, China & Tibet. She has maintained a meditation practice for over 15 years. Carrie has a healing practice in Seattle which focuses on awareness based practices for connecting to your own inner healer and guide http://movementfromwithin.net

    Michael's Story

    in Health

    We are aware of what it means to tune a violin or a piano, but what does it mean to tune a human body?That is what our guest for this episode, Michael Gilbert explains to us. Michael’s tuning may include one or more of the many modalities that he has studied, including yoga, rolfing, feldenkrais, trager technique and shiatsu, to name just a few that he works with. As He explains to us,”I help people by getting them to see their problem differently, I get them to realize they are not broken. I help people understand that the body is out of tune and not broken….bodies are tunable”.Michael teaches people how to manage energy and reduce tension which he says,”is the underlying key to good health”.Over the last 25 years, Michael has enabled his clients to avoid  invasive and dangerous surgeries and to get out of chronic pain.
