“We do not work with people’s problems but with their health–health as the capacity to recover from shock, the ability to overcome obstacles, the capacity to live one’s dreams.”  Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais

Please note that although the office does not comply with ADA standards, there is a wheelchair ramp available and doorways are large enough for most wheelchairs.
