Portrait of Olivia Cheever
Olivia Cheever: Mending the body by moving the mind
Quotes from Clients

If you’ve found your way to a website about Feldenkrais Method®, Bones For Life®, and Leadership Embodiment work, you’re most likely someone who struggles with chronic pain or stress...or carries tension from huddling over a computer in a high-stress work environment...or reaches for peak performance as a leader, musician, athlete, equestrian, or dancer but finds your own body dynamics under pressure getting in your way.

I’m Olivia Cheever, and I teach these methods of somatic/movement awareness in order to help people learn to lead the lives they want. That can mean hitting a high note you’ve never been able to sing before, or standing up from a chair without your knees hurting, or being able to notice your body's immediate reaction to pressure and/or stress so you can do something about it before it takes over and overwhelms you!

It’s not a one-time fix I’m talking about, like feeling better when you get off a massage table but not knowing why, or how to keep from tensing up again. The message I want you to get is that change is possible, and you can be in charge of it.

"You can't change a system by fighting with it. You have to bring forth something else which makes it obsolete."
—Buckminster Fuller
