Misha has specialized training in Somatic (movement) Education in the Feldenkrais Method® for almost two decades. After a serious automobile crash that left her with 17 broken ribs and six months of staring at a ceiling, she became attracted to the Feldenkrais Method® because of its attention to gentle nuances that allow for an increase in movement and joint fluidity without pain and its important directed attention that enhances daily functioning.
Her interest in massage developed after her Feldenkrais training out of a desire to help a friend with lymphedema. Trained initially as a therapist at the Swedish Institute in New York City, her skills include gentle to deep tissue massage, neural and visceral manipulation (Barral Institute), lymphatic drainage (Vodder), and oncology massage. She is an on-call therapist at a number of B&B inns in the Berkshires as well as the owner of WellnessGB.
Misha is one of the founding Board of Directors of Feldenkrais Education of New England, Inc., the sponsoring organization of the Boston Feldenkrais training, as well as the current New England Region Representative of the Feldenkrais Guild of North America.
