Greetings to you! With our recent celebration this past week of Chinese Lunar New Year, “Year of the Ram”, I am reminded how here in beautiful, sunny Southern California (most of the time, anyway) in just a few weeks, if not already, we will be able to enjoy our wonderful Southland Springtime accolades.
It’s floating all over the Media and Internet. …
New York Times Bestseller, Dr. Norman Doidge, MD, psychiatrist, psychoanalyst and poet, has just released his new book (January 2015) appropriately titled, “THE BRAIN'S WAY OF HEALING: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries from the frontiers of Neuroplasticity, and is available in all bookstores as well as at Dr. Norman Doidge’s website, http://www.normandoidge.com/.
Dr. Norman Doidge’s new book on brain and body neuroplasticity contains two complete chapters devoted to the merits of Movement and Neuromuscular Reeducation through The Feldenkrais Method® and features numerous case studies of patients suffering from neurological disorders and details how in each case the brain adapts to compensate for the disabilities of the individual patients, often in unusual and unexpected ways.
The Brain's Way of Healing focuses on treating brain injury and illness through neuroplastic treatments and healing, i.e. Feldenkrais Movement Re-Education. Dr. Doidge explores cases where patients alleviated years of chronic pain or recovered from debilitating strokes or accidents; children on the autistic spectrum or with learning disorders normalizing; symptoms of multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, learning disorders, sensory processing disorders, attention deficit disorder, as well as balance problems radically improved, and other near-miracle recoveries.
Even the prestigious, Salon, the informative news magazine website, renown for focusing on U.S. politics and current affairs, as well as on reviews and articles about music, books and film, has already featured a wonderful excerpt from Dr. Doidge’s book titled as:
“She Will Dance at Her Wedding”: Healing the girl born without a part of her brain
The origin of Moshe Feldenkrais’ therapeutic method reads more like a spy thriller than a neuroscience textbook.
This article can be found at the following link from Salon’s website.:
You may recall Dr. Norman Doidge’s previous bestseller back in the year 2007 as:
The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science
Having previously sold over a million copies, The Brain that Changes Itself, was chosen by the Dana Brain Foundation’s Journal Cerebrum, from among the 30,000 books on the brain in English, as the best general book on the brain, and is also currently available in over a hundred countries and over 20 languages.
