Nice to Meet You, I'm Orna Pizanty
As one specialized in physiotherapy, I have, regularly, come across individuals afflicted by pain, who go from one doctor to another, who consume expensive pills, injections and other such costly treatments in seemingly futile efforts to rid themselves of pain.
By chance, I was introduced to the Feldenkrais method (which, along with physiotherapy, is the basis of the Softness Method I have developed). I thus learned that the Feldenkrais method succeeds where physiotherapy has failed and given up. Hence my professional retraining was inevitable.
I am the founder of the Softness Method, that trains instructors how to help tens of thousands of individuals suffering from various kinds of chronic pain. We teach them how to effectively treat such pain. I convey the relevant information in conferences, workshops, online tutorials and video courses that can practically reach any home on the globe.
We have been culturally programmed to follow a certain, very passive code: When a person says ‘it hurts me’, the answer, according to the rather mechanical program, would be one of these: ‘Take a pill’, ‘go to the doctor’, ‘do physiotherapy’. It relates to the body as if it were a vehicle being brought to a service station for repair. Too bad.
However, we can take care of ourselves so easily. Even the most radical solution, which is surgery, often ends up taking us back to square one, and a recurrence of the pain we try so desperately to rid ourselves of.
However, not until we shall have learned to alter our deeply seeded movement habits, will we be able to produce real change regarding such pain.
