Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984) was a nuclear physicist, a civil engineer, a martial arts specialist and a brilliant thinker. He developed this method to recover from his own inoperable injuries and restore the use of his body; he spent the end of his life training others to teach it. Feldenkrais was considered by many to be the grandfather of neuroplasticity long before technology existed to verify the changes in the brains he witnessed in his students.
