What is the Anat Baniel Method?

Answered by GPT-4 Artificial Intelligence

"The Anat Baniel Method (ABM) is a holistic approach to movement and learning that was developed by world-renowned Israeli physical therapist, author and teacher Anat Baniel. This method combines principles of neuroplasticity with the Feldenkrais Method to help people improve their physical functioning, reduce pain, increase mobility and enhance overall well-being. ABM helps children who have neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), adults with chronic pain or injuries recover faster, athletes reach higher levels of performance, seniors maintain independence longer and everyone else simply feel better in their bodies. The main goal is to teach people new ways of moving that are easier on their body while also engaging the mind in order to create lasting change."
