Integrating somatic practices with brain technologies for transforming consciousness, achieving optimal well-being of body, mind and spirit.

SomaticWell offers a variety of services

for individuals, families & corporations.


My name is Dr Hillel Braude - Founder Director of the Somatic Well Center.

I am an Integrative  Medicine Doctor, Expert Feldenkrais Method Practitioner, and Philosopher of Medicine.

SomaticWell is a unique educational and therapeutic center integrating somatic movement practices - emphasizing the felt-experience of having a body -  with scientifically validated neuro-technologies for enhancing personal mental and   physical well-being.

My clinical approach espoused at SomaticWell is based on a number core conceptual foundations.

These  include:

  • Somatic Practices - incorporating touch, movement, breathing.

  • Evolutionary Development

  • Infant Developmental Patterns

  • Phenomenology - philosophy of subjective experience

  • Intersubjective Neuroscience

  • Spirituality

This website provides a provides a portal into the various therapeutic modalities provided at SomaticWell – such as, the Feldenkrais Method, the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP), Binaural Acoustic Utilization Device (BAUD), Photobiomodulation  and Interactive Meditation incorporating bio-feedback measurement of Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and more. I am also proud to have developed the Genesis Protocol for the treatment of children with Autism.

These life-enhancing therapies may be applied separately, or together. Most of the SomaticWell therapeutic services may be administered remotely. I also provide in-person consultations in Afula, Israel.

The SomaticWell Academy provides educational programs, workshops and retreats applying somatic education and movement practices together with higher-learning in a group context. I also also provide Somatic Ethics consultations for individuals and corporations.

Online teachings include: Weekly Feldenkrais lessons, Evoke Somatic Movement (ESM), Neuro-Somatic Variations (NSV), Somatics as Spiritual Exercise monthly meetings, and more...
