At Arizona Pain & Posture, our physical therapy looks different from what a patient may have experienced in the past. We will never pressure a patient to “push through the pain” or perform any movement that is uncomfortable. We pride ourselves on achieving outstanding levels of improvement with patients without these all-too-common, outdated, painful techniques. 
Our head physical therapist is a Feldenkrais practitioner. If you haven’t heard of Feldenkrais, it is manual therapy paired with verbally directed movement explorations based on developmental movements, ordinary functional activities, or abstract explorations of joint, muscular, and postural relationships. The easy movements gradually evolve into greater range and complexity. Emphasis is placed on NOT moving into discomfort, and afterward, participants report feeling lighter and taller, with free and easy movement. 

The Feldenkrais Method is excellent for any situation that calls for physical therapy, whether it’s acute pain, chronic pain, pre-operative, post-operative, or any other type of pain or limitations. 

We are able to accept insurance for Feldenkrais sessions, through our dual-licensed physical therapist Jeanne Hills, the only physical therapist in Arizona who also holds a 4-year Feldenkrais degree.

Using the Feldenkrais Method®, Jeanne Hills, PT, GCFP, specializes in helping chronic and complicated pain patients reach their full potential and reclaim control over their lives through the freedom and ease of movement most of us knew as children.

The technique repairs connections between the motor cortex and the body by retraining movement patterns. The method is based on the principles of neurology, physics, and physiology. Feldenkrais® eliminates the bad habits in movement that often create pain, replacing them with new, good habits.

The Feldenkrais® Method is a gentle and effective technique created by European scientist and martial artist Moshe Feldenkrais in the 1950s after a repetitive knee injury left him facing surgery.

Instead, he developed an incredible high-end technique used today by everyone from professional athletes and dancers to regular folks with good old-fashioned neck and back pain. In fact, it can help with every type of physical pain you can imagine.
