For the last 17 years I have been dealing with the results of an injury to my left shoulder and its general region. Initially I went through several forces of physical therapy and a significant amount of medication, and eventually I got to a level of pain that was tolerable. This chronic pain, however, has been the general annoyance to my otherwise mundane existence. This most irritating pain situation has affected every aspect of life, personal and professional and this is where David comes in. David and I work in the same office , and through casual conversation last year, I mentioned my most problematic shoulder. David told me he was studying to become a Feldenkrais practitioner and said that one day he would like to work on it.
Recently on a Sunday morning I took him up on his generous offer. He had become a Feldenkrais practitioner. Immediately he set me at ease and begun working on my shoulder for a significant amount of time. Previously, whenever I had physical therapy it was always painful and rather unpleasant. As David worked on me, I felt no pain and actually began to feel the clutches of pain vanishing. It was as if the pain was leaching out. After he was done, my shoulder felt better than it has for years. My first comment was “I feel the pain, but it feels like the pain does not have to be there anymore.” It’s strange to explain that it suddenly felt as if some of the pain had been given permission to leave me.
It has been about three weeks since that experience and there are some days better than others. The biggest gift I gained from working with David was being more aware of how I carry myself contributes to the general shoulder pain.

I’ve received Feldenkrais lessons from several teachers. David’s have been the most enjoyable and beneficial lessons I’ve experienced. I highly recommend him.
