My husband and I both have experience with Feldenkrais treatment. The results were very good and surprising. Pingel has helped me with a upper back problem, which created pain in my arms and fingers. I couldn’t work normally behind a computer anymore. The treatment was very ‘subtle’ and started with a very precise analysis of how my bones let my body move. Pingel treated the problem and I felt relieved when I walked out the door.
She also handed some ideas of how I could integrate certain movements in a regular day. To keep the upper back moving. Since then, I have a ‘Pingel-way-to get-out-of-bed’ in the morning.
The surprising effect of Feldenkrais was for my husband. He is very tall, about 1.98m. Over the years, his upper back and neck have started to make a curve – you see this a lot with very tall people. After a classical Feldenkrais lesson, Pingel offered to help him with it and after a short session he stood up straight, without any effort. And it wasn’t the type of pulling the shoulders backwards. It felt like his head and neck suddenly knew how they should position in a light way.
We really could recommend the Feldenkrais method and especially the professional care of Pingel. We live in the Netherlands and miss her very much, as a teacher, a therapist and a friend, although we know her heart is in the right place now, in Andalusia.
