Anat Baniel Method (ABM) for Children

Bring your child and experience this cutting edge gentle approach to working with children with special needs. Movement and awareness are the main tools utilized for communicating with the brain to help form new neural connections and patterns

What is the Free Clinic?

The Free Clinic, organized and staffed by trained and certified practitioners of the Anat Baniel Method (ABM), offers parents of all financial means the chance to see firsthand how this work can help children with disabilities. The practitioners volunteer their time to make these clinics possible.

What is the Anat Baniel Method?

wDSC_0070.jpgThe Anat Baniel Method expands on the work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. It is a non-medical, learning based approach that uses gentle touch and movement to enable the child with special needs or a learning disability to improve physically, mentally and emotionally. It asks children to move only in ways which are within their true capabilities, creating a feeling of safety, encouraging a willingness to expand into new abilities. Practitioners certified in this method provide learning experiences that help children develop beyond their limitations. Infants’ and children’s progress often surpass medical expectations.
