a blind Feldenkrais practitioner?

"Could you teach Feldenkrais if you were blind?"

I believe it would be possible.

What do you think?

I ask that now because vision has been on my mind a great deal. As I have mentioned in a previous post, I have been dealing with eye strain issues for several years. And it got really acute the last 2 years or so. In addition to the strain, driving at night, especially on the freeway, has gotten difficult for me.

I do have new eyeglasses with an appropriate prescription. That has helped a bit.

And an eye doctor could not find anything physically wrong with my eyes. So it does not seem to be a medical issue.

And yes, Feldenkrais eye sessions have been really helpful to me. I strongly believe that using Feldenkrais to keep your eye movements soft and flexible helps you stay mobile and independent as you age. And helps keep your neck and spine flexible and soft.

BUT - my eyes move fine. The strain seems internal and unrelated to movement. And it seems to return a day or two after doing Feldenkrais sessions.

So with a bit of desperation and a great deal of hope, I have started experimenting with supplements designed specifically for eye health.

And I am *cautiously* optimistic.

Keep in mind, I am not an expert on eye health. And I am not recommending nor selling supplements here.

I am just sharing my personal experience. But the last week of taking a supplement with lutein and zeaxanthin* seems to have reduced my eyestrain. And my eyes seem more lubricated. Too soon to tell how it will all play out. But I will send an update in a few weeks to let people know.

Alright! That's it for today.

I hope you are doing great out there.

And if you have anything to add, please respond below and let me know.



By the way - The supplement that I linked to above was not my first choice. It was actually the ONLY choice that I had here in Mexico that I could buy locally. When I am ready to do an online purchase from Amazon, I will evaluate the results from this search on Amazon and choose another supplement with lutein, zeaxanthin, meso-zeaxanthin and whatever else my research leads to.
