I just had a few minutes of intense stress and overhwelm. I felt like I was going to crawl out of my skin. Likely because I have had a bit too much "computer time" and not enough relaxation time over the last few weeks. Has this happened to you recently?
I decided to do one of my own Feldenkrais sessions to see if it would help. Something I could do right away, while I was siting and without the need for any special preparations. I feel 1000% better and more relaxed after doing this - the first session of my "Feldenkrais Basics" series. I have put the session below if you want to give it a try.
You can do all or part of the session. It is less than 28-minutes. No need to prepare: Just do.

If you enjoyed that, it is part of a 5-session series, that includes transcripts. (see below)
"Ryan, I just finished listening to the 4th session from your sitting series. I've had some lower back pain and discomfort for more than a month. It has been bad enough to disturb my sleep. After this 4th session, I can already feel more comfort and less discomfort. Incredible. And the best part is that the process is enjoyable, not requiring any painful exercises or stretching. It feels like a natural process of healing. Thanks Ryan." - Rob McNeilly, MD, Hobart, Australia
