MOVEMENTWISE is the Feldenkrais® practice of occupational therapist Joan Clapper.
“The very first time I experienced a Feldenkrais session with Joan, I knew that a significant before-and-after point in my life had been reached. She has literally begun to put me fully back into my body, to reassemble, to reintegrate parts that over time had become scattered and lost. Her work has brought me renewed vitality and a sense of nearly unlimited possibilities for moving through and engaging with the world. I am hooked.” Barbara
The Feldenkrais Method® is an approach to rehabilitation and wellness that uses gentle movements, guided by words or the practitioner’s hands, to deeply influence musculoskeletal organization, emphasizing the conditions under which the nervous system learns best. Everyone, of any age, from athletes and artists to administrators and attorneys, can benefit from the Feldenkrais Method.
Joan Clapper is an occupational therapist and rehabilitation specialist who provides Feldenkrais classes and individual sessions in the Corvallis area for those who wish to explore this innovative approach to physical rehabilitation and mind-body wellness.
