“Just a Small Pain”
by Maureen McHugh
Sarah has been coming to a mixture of group and individual sessions for a couple
years. At thirty-five she is juggling a full-time career, a family life with
young children, and a commitment to regular running. In between she makes time
for Feldenkrais lessons. Her goals is to untangle some tensions that have
plagued her since an athletic injury while a teenager.
Sarah reported a small epiphany. She was sitting at her computer, where she
often spends 10 hours a day.
“A couple days ago I felt this twinge
in my neck. The amazing part was that it was so small, and yet I
felt it. It wasn’t really a pain, but it was the beginning of one.
immediately checked out my feet. They were all cockeyed. So I put them in a more
stable position. Then I was more able to easily lift my chest and sit more
upright. My shoulders came down immediately. After that the pain in the neck
just went away! And I was able to
keep on going.”
