About request an edit to this page

The School for Self-Healing offers lectures, workshops, private sessions, and training in the Meir Schneider Method of Self-Healing Through Bodywork and Movement.

The School’s mission is to train individuals to Self-Heal.  Self-Healing is a non-medical, holistic health prevention and rehabilitation system.

Sessions with a Self-Healing Practitioner
The philosophy of the Meir Schneider Self-Healing Method is to tailor each session to specific needs of the client.  Each client is seen as a student and is instructed in the use of therapeutic exercises specifically designed for them to continue to practice at home, beyond the limits of an individual session.

Our method includes subtle body movement and a specific massage technique developed by Meir over his 40-year career, that stimulates muscles, bones and nerves.  We use unique forms of imagery to connect between the brain and the muscles and the nerve cells.  We teach about the interconnectedness within the body – including the connection between stiffness in your body and the condition of your eyes.  Stiffness in the back and neck means poor blood flow to the eyes. A tense muscle in the lower back may cause problems in the hip, abdomen or in ones digestion, but at the same time that weakness may originate from a weakness in the toes that leads to stiffness in the ankles, the knees, the hips and eventually stiffness in the lower back, middle back, neck and jaw.

Self-Healing is for motivated clients. They become excellent observers of their own bodies and active partners with their therapists. This active role leads to an empowerment that strongly counteracts the depression, frustration, and fear that often accompany sickness and disability.
