Chiropractor and Feldenkrais Instructor Michelle Johnson, is Guild Certified and graduated from her Boulder, CO training program in 2014. She also practices the hands on method of Feldenkrais called Functional Integration, which supports the brain, nerves and spinal structures in restoring natural ways of moving, from childhood, that are fluid and free, while reversing tension that contribute to pain and aging. She incorporates the Feldenkrais Method in her practice in Lakewood, of 35 years, where she practices her own blend of natural and physical medicine. She believes that tension is a choice, and with a regular practice of gentle restorative movements to release tension, you can choose relaxation instead.
