Meet Barbara White, Feldenkrais® Method
Barbara White is a highly experienced Feldenkrais® practitioner who has been with Massage Therapy Center Palo Alto for 30 years! Barbara trained with Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, founder of the Feldenkrais Method, designed to improve human functioning by increasing self-awareness through movement. She has been teaching as well as practicing Functional Integration® and Awareness Through Movement® since 1983.
This approach addresses habitual neuromuscular patterns and rigidities. Through gentle touch and movement, clients are helped to move in more expanded functional motor patterns. Barbara’s specialties include posture and gait improvement, back and neck pain relief, sports injury treatment, and stress management. Barbara has just completed the production of a CD series called Small Moves for Comfortable Walking®. These protocols are designed to enhance walking as exercise.
Says Barbara, ‘I feel excited and fulfilled in my contributions to my clients’ health and fluid movements. My work shows me every day the amazing healing and stress-relieving outcomes which make people stronger and happier.’ For Barbara, the things most important in life are good health, a wonderful sense of humor, and intellectual pursuits. She loves reading good books as well as cooking and making wine, when she’s not walking, singing, or attending opera performances.
