I’m Kristin Fredricksson, a movement teacher and Feldenkrais practitioner – Felden-what? you may ask! Felden-krais, rhymes with rice. But don’t worry about the name – here’s what you need to know.
I help people improve their movement skills, alleviate pain and address chronic and life-destroying conditions. This is about physical and mental health.
I also work with actors, dancers, musicians and sports people to improve their performance. I trained and continue to work as a performer and theatre-maker, so I have a particular affinity with my performer clients.
I am happy to work with companies and institutions on self-care for employees in the workplace. This can range from posture and strategies for desk-working or presentation and performance skills, to tools for coping with stress, anxiety, mental health issues and nervous system regulation.
This work transforms lives.
It has transformed my life. I was a physical performer with an ongoing back problem and repeated pattern of hamstring injury. In 2003 I began the Feldenkrais professional training and I haven’t looked back. It is such a rich seam of experience. I wrote a PhD thesis on it (2018) and it goes on offering fresh vistas constantly across my professional and personal life.
When you learn to listen to your subtleties, you make a gift to the world; the gift of your better self.
Whether you are young or old, fit or struggling, Feldenkrais Method can work for you.
Some of the things I help people with are chronic pain, RSI, stroke, neurological disorders, migraine, MS, fibromyalgia, ME, scoliosis, stroke recovery, whiplash, plantar fasciitis, rehabilitation from injury, climate anxiety and pregnancy-related mobility issues.
Feldenkrais is not a medical practice – it a mode of somatic education; it complements traditional healthcare and other movement practices.
