Movement Intelligence, Scoliosis and Back Pain – Elaine Price

Elaine’s Experience

When I think of the work I have done with Cynthia Allen and the Feldenkrais Method, one word that comes to mind is possibility.

“I find her kind and gentle manner make the sessions something I look forward to each week. She is a problem solver…”Elaine Price

I have scoliosis and it has caused me to be sedentary most of my life. I avoid standing and walking for long stretches of time whenever possible. This has worsened as I have gotten older.

Almost a year and a half ago, my sister recommended seeing Cynthia. I find her kind and gentle manner make the sessions something I look forward to.  She is a problem solver, so when I come in with some new complaint or symptom, she is able to give me ways to deal with it. Because of our sessions and the exercises, I follow up with at home, I can Elaine Feldenkrais Scoliosisstand up and straighter and lay on my back without pain. I must sit taller too, because my rear view mirror had to be raised.

So with the help of Cynthia – I have the possibility of continued improvement and a life more pain free than before. I can be more active and, while I still do my fair share of sitting, moving is not the obstacle it once was.

Thank you, Cynthia!
