There is little doubt in my mind that the motor function, and perhaps the muscles themselves, are part and parcel of our higher functions. This is not true only of those higher functions like singing, painting and loving, which are impossible without muscular activity, but also of thinking, recalling, remembering and feeling.

 —Moshe Feldenkrais, “Body and Mind”, 1980

Do You Have Pain?

  • Move Beyond Pain or Injury (even severe pain or injury)
  • Restore Capacity / Function
  • Expand or Create New Capabilities

Limitations are more likely organizational than truly anatomic. The only way an acute problem can become chronic is if the attempted solution becomes part of the problem. Biologic systems heal. It takes recurrent effort in conscious and unconscious ways to maintain an irritation.

Increasing options for movement can allow you past a whole host of problems and dysfunctions that may otherwise seem impossible to move beyond. “To make the impossible possible, the possible easy, and the easy elegant.” The limitations of the work are a matter of your match with the practitioner you find. See if Nancy is right for you.

Nancy MacAllister’s hands-on approach gently uncovers the habits of motion on which we rely, opening the door to new possibilities of movement. Embodied curiosity and profound compassion inform her clinical practice.
