Feldenkrais Gokhale

I got the 8 steps book and I have been attempting stretchsitting and stretchlyimg.


but I have issues with chronic tension in my back, chest, shoulders.


ami right to assume that if for example my back is stiff then stretchsitting for example won't be effective cause how can there be any traction while my back muscles are actively pulling together like a bow.


so in my case doing feldenkrais awareness through movement lessons have been more comfortable to do because I can assume a position sitting or lying that has "slack", as in no traction or pulling anywhere and within that I can do the lesson and my back often becomes more relaxed.


maybe after that stretch sitting can work.

I am an office worker and due to sitting too much, I sometimes have shoulder and neck pain, but I have taken medicine but it has not really gone away.

As an office worker, I sometimes get shoulder and neck pain as a result of prolonged periods of sitting; despite taking medication, my condition has not improved significantly.

 I've found a treatment that not only relieves my tension, but also improves my overall health. The treatment is called Reflexology. It's a gentle, snake io hands-on therapy that uses special pressure points on the feet and hands to relieve tension in the body. It's easy to do, and it only takes about 20 minutes per session. And the best part is that it's completely free! So if you're looking for a way to improve your quality of life and relieve chronic tension, I highly recommend Reflexology.
