As we get older most of us have some degree of chronic pain. Maybe it started when you lifted a heavy grocery bag, you’ve had a bad fall or injured yourself playing sports. You’re getting some relief from various treatments but the pain keeps coming back. Did you know that chronic pain can be caused simply by the way you move?
Your brain and your body just aren’t speaking to each other. Everyone’s body and movement is unique. As a movement detective, Fariya Doctor uses Feldenkrais® and breathing techniques to teach you how to re-connect your body and brain so you move naturally. You will recognize when you’re even a little bit off kilter and be able make the adjustments your body needs to relieve pain.
Fariya also teaches the Buteyko Breathing Method. Intelligent breathing is much more than deep breathing. Fariya teaches you how to breathe in your own unique way to relieve stress and long term issues like anxiety, asthma and problems with sleep.
I spent two years struggling with chronic hip and leg pain - visits with osteopaths, physios, RMTs, and several “releasers” (active and fascial) did not help. My function was still not optimal. Fariya and her Feldenkrais® practice offered me something completely different. She helped me regain and return to an ease of movement that the more mechanistic approaches could not achieve. I recommend her very highly.
Thank you Fariya for keeping me mobile for over 19 years! At the age of 95 I am still doing what I love.
Fariya, I want to thank you for your tremendous expertise in helping me with my leg and back pain. I had seen numerous therapists, pain specialists and other experts but you were the one with the special touch who made the pain disappear.
Fariya, I just want to say thank you for helping me get through my knee problems in preparation for my crossfit competition. My team won 1st place!
There are no in-person classes now due to the current COVID-19 status in Niagara. Virtual classes are on their way. Sign up for the newsletter and I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, if you are new to Feldenkrais® or Intelligent Breathing you’ll learn a lot in this video – Awareness Through Movement.
Sometimes a person needs more than one road to health. That’s why Fariya believes it’s important that practitioners and fitness providers in Niagara stay connected so people achieve the best overall health they can.
