Feldenkrais Method and Feelings

The Weber–Fechner law is a proposed relationship between the magnitude of a physical stimulus and the intensity or strength that people feel.

This is the aim of Feldenkrais Method: to develope or improve the ability to listen to the signals of our body in order to use it in an appropriate way. Only in this way we will be able to know what we are doing and “If you know what you are doing, you can do what you want.” “Dr. Feldenkrais.
