Synopsis

Synopsis

Body Awareness as Healing Therapy: The Case of Nora is Moshe Feldenkrais' classic study of his work with Nora, a woman who has suffered a severe stroke and lost her neuromuscular coordination, including the ability to read and write. Feldenkrais uses rational and intuitive approaches to help his student relearn basic motor skills. One can observe here the groundwork of Feldenkrais' extraordinary insights which became known as the Feldenkrais Method. We follow his detailed descriptions of the trial and error process which led him to see the ingredients that were needed to help Nora reshape her attention, perception, imagination and cognition.
Praise

Praise

"...a rare gem. This book has inspired my students and me for over a decade with its intimate revelations detailing how Feldenkrais went about solving the problems of his case. It is of interest to medical practitioners who work directly with the body, as well as educators and psychotherapists."
-Don Hanlon Johnson, author of Body, Spirit and Democracy

"...an important literary and scientific achievement that reveals Feldenkrais' bold and original insights about learning and the brain. Nora's story is an inspiring account of the nervous system's ability to heal from trauma and the remarkable human capacity to learn."
-Mark Reese, so-author of Relaxercise
