“I went to Jane McClenney for the back pain I had for 10 years from a riding accident. I took Advil daily and tried everything from massage and P.T. to acupuncture and chiropractic services to relieve the pain and nothing provided relief. After one session with Jane, my body went through a huge transformation. It was as if a type of thick body armor had been peeled away. My body began to flow again and each session provided more and more freedom of movement. Today I no longer have back pain. Feldenkrais changed my body and subsequently my life, because I now have a different relationship with my body. I am more aware and deliberate in my movement and feel more connected and solid than ever before”.

“Of the many alternatives I have tried over the past 20 years, the Feldenkrais Method has been the most effective remedy for my chronic lower back pain. Not only have the Functional Integration appointments relieved any pain I might have been experiencing, but the instructional classes have provided knowledge of how my body works as a skeletal and muscular unit. I have learned to change habits of body movement that were causing difficulty, and have replaced them with more fluid and healthy movements. After 2 years of working with the Feldenkrais Method, not only have I found my pain greatly diminished, but I now have the tools to help prevent pain from occuring in the future. I am a more functional and healthy person thanks to this incredible knowlege.”

“I took a series of workshops from her a while back. One of the exercises we practiced kept me from landing flat on my back on an icy sidewalk. My body responded in a manner that kept me upright. I recognized the movements my body automatically did as ones we practiced in the workshop. It was cool. Not hitting the sidewalk with my computer in my hand was even cooler.
Jane has been instrumental in my recovery from the accident I had last year. She has loosened up scar tissue, dramatically improved my posture and gait, not to mention increased the ROM in my left arm as well as my neck. I wouldn’t be in the health I’m in without Jane.”
