Occupational Therapy and Feldenkrais Work Together
With the Feldenkrais® method of somatic education, you will learn to move more easily, efficiently, and less painfully. You will learn a lot about your actions and your body, your thinking and your habits. Feldenkrais® works with the newest neuroplasticity research and the joy of movement. You will refine your kinesthetic sense and sensory awareness using gentle movements.
Occupational therapy assists in restoring function; adjusting and adapting to life changes; and finding alternative ways to perform daily activities. These include dressing, bathing, personal hygiene, eating, and meal preparation. You can also improve your sleep and rest habits, work performance. The goal is to promote health and participation in all aspects of life.
You and I Work Together as a Team
Both of these approaches are process oriented and build on your potential. I am always looking for the “Aha” moment as we work together and discover new joy in movement. Together we will explore ways to help you move more easily and function better in your environment.
Meet Jutta Brettschneider, OTR/L & GCFP
I am Jutta [speak: Yutah] and for nearly 35 years, I have been working creatively in collaboration with clients of all ages, backgrounds and physical and cognitive abilities to improve their quality of life. Having worked in the USA, Israel, Palestine and Germany, I have met wonderful people who have enriched my life in so many ways.
In Occupational Therapy (OT), I completed my undergraduate studies in Germany and my Advanced Master of Science in the USA, researching how to make therapy services better accessible to trauma survivors. In Feldenkrais, I completed a four-year training in Israel and conducted a case study with a 97 old student as my graduation project. and continue attending trainings in the USA and overseas to refine my practice. I am an adjunct faculty member at Howard University in Washington, DC and have given lectures and workshops at national and international conferences for last 15 years. Before I founded my practice, I had worked in a variety of inpatient and outpatient and community settings. I am looking forward to meeting you in the Movement Clinic!
