Overcoming Adversity Through Dance

Greg Mozgala is a 31 year old man with Cerebral Palsy. This story particularly touches me, as I also have CP, albeit a rather non-severe case. Anyway... he went through 12 years of therapy, and it did not do enough. he walked with a severe gait for years. 8 months of dancing has nearly removed the gait entirely. This amazes me! There was one thing that got my attention however:

"She introduced Mr. Mozgala to a tension-releasing shaking technique, and it was immediately revelatory."

I want to know what this technique is. I could potentially use it to help my Cerebral Palsy. Does anyone know?

  1. I think it is Feldenkreis or Catherine Fitzmaurice voice work, who was influenced by Feldenkreis.
