Joan specializes in Feldenkrais Method® movement therapy, occupational therapy, and disability and aging. Joan has been instrumental in the development of nationally recognized multi-disciplinary treatment programs. She works with people of all ages who are living with arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, cerebral palsy, joint replacements, chronic pain, on-the-job injuries, brain injury and stroke.
“The Feldenkrais Method is a gentle yet profound use of movement that awakens and reorganizes a person’s nervous system and brain to respond more fully to daily life. The development of ourselves in this way is essential to meeting the demands of life, whether the challenges be neurological, orthopedic, chronic pain or a stress-related condition, or the endeavors of an athlete, musician, equestrian or yoga participant.”
