Marsha Novak is a physical therapist who specializes in the Feldenkrais® Method and the Anat Baniel Method(sm), an evolution of that work. She uses gentle hands on techniques; movement/exercises and verbal instruction to help people of all ages and abilities improve how they move.
- Decreased pain
- Improved posture
- Performance enhancement in sports and the performing arts
Marsha also works with children with neurodevelopmental issues as well as adults with a wide range of neurologic issues.
“The scientific basis of this work and the reason it is useful in such a wide variety of situations is that our brains can change at any age based on the input received. The other relevant fact is that movement happens because your brain sends a message to a muscle that then pulls on a bone. I use my tools to create optimal conditions for the brain to do that job better. Although my focus is working with movement, many clients report improvements in other areas of their lives because their brains are functioning at a higher level.”
Marsha Novak graduated from the University of Washington with degrees in physical therapy and kinesiology. She completed a certified Feldenkrais training at Feldenkrais Resources in Berkeley, CA and has completed “mastery” trainings at the Anat Baniel center in San Rafael for working with children with special needs and for vitality and anti-aging.
