Communication through Touch; How a Massage Therapist Applies Mind Body Studies

Posted by on

Attila Romandy, graduate of the 2011-2014 MBS Foundation Training, discusses how his education in MBS and the Feldenkrais Method influences his work within a hospital setting, as a massage therapist. He describes how he sees the traditional roles of ‘patient’ and ‘therapist’ shift into an often far more useful relationship, of dialogue and engagement.

In short, I have tried for about a year now to let my experiences with MBS come into my work in the hospital, especially since the February segment, in which we did unusually much work on the back. It’s also very exciting for me because I learn so much from my patients, and I receive a positive ‘echo’, as well. My work, which had started to become tiresome, is now completely different. It’s more of a dialogue with the patients, because the spirit and mindset have changed. Before, I always tried to “correct”, in the sense of repairing. Now, in contrast, I go openly to my patients or clients and I work by asking questions with my hands. It is more of a process in which we are involved, together.

Kurz, ich versuche seit ungefähr einem Jahr meine MBS- Erfahrungen in meine Arbeit im Krankenhaus einfließen zu lassen, und jetzt besonders nach dem Februarsegment, wo wir besonders viel am Rücken gearbeitet haben, und es ist sehr spannend für mich, auch weil ich soviel dabei von meinen Patienten lerne, und ich auch positives Echo bekomme. Meine Arbeit, die mich schon etwas zu langweilen begann ist jetzt vollkommen anders, es ist mehr ein Dialog mit dem Patienten, weil die geistige Einstellung sich verändert hat, früher war ich immer bemüht etwas zu "richten", im Sinne von reparieren, jetzt hingegen gehe ich offen auf meine Patienten oder Klienten zu, und arbeite indem ich mit meinen Händen frage, es ist mehr wie ein Prozeß in dem man gemeinsam involviert ist.

MBS Practitioner Andrea Bonisonne Testimonial

Posted by on

b2ap3_thumbnail_foto-2.jpgAndrea Bonissone, a long-time practitioner and participant in the 2011-2014 MBS Professional Foundation Training, shares some of his experiences from the current training and from decades of using the Mind Body Studies method toward improving his own quality of life. At 24, Andrea was diagnosed with Ankylosing spondylitis, a chronic inflammatory disease which primarily affects the spine and sacroiliac joint, causing inflammation and fusion between vertebrae. Since training with Mia Segal in Holland in the 1980s, Andrea has used Feldenkrais along with a few targeted therapies, steadily improving his condition over the past quarter-century.

 

When did you first train with Mia?

Bonissone: At the end of the 80’s, in Nijmedjan, Holland, I attended the complete Basic Training, which now corresponds to the MBS Foundation Program.

 

How did you first hear about Feldenkrais and Mia Segal?

Bonissone: A friend of mine knew, I don’t know how, that there was this opportunity to learn something through this method. I was interested in it because I was taking cortisone at the time, which damaged me a lot. I decided to go to a training, and Mia was a friend of my father. That was how I found out about her. As I did the training, I continued to get some cortisone, but not so much as before.

Learning to Learn, Learning to Teach

Now eight segments through the MBS Foundation Course, many MBS students have begun to apply what they’re learning toward teaching their own MBS Group Classes. In addition, many students who work as teachers, instructors and coaches report that their studies with MBS are influencing how they approach completely separate disciplines.

Maxi Roedl, current MBS Foundation student, describes her recent experiences as a yoga instructor:
