For more general information about The Feldenkrais Method, please visit the national website.
Single Session: $82
5 Session Plan: $75 Each
Functional Integration® is one of the modalities of The Feldenkrais Method®. I will work with you hands on in a non invasive, interactive and informative way, guiding you to find new patterns of movement based on your current condition. This will promote a more efficient use of self, relief from specific stress injuries, identified chronic pain or any kind of neurological difficulties. Comfortably dressed, you will either be in a lying or sitting position.
AWARENESS THROUGH MOVEMENT®
Single Sessions: $15
Awareness Through Movement® are lessons given in a group setting through verbal instruction, guiding students through gentle movements. Students are encouraged to pay attention to the quality of their movements fostering self awareness and a sense of curiosity. This will lead to finding new and more efficient neuromuscular patterns, providing the student with a greater diversity and range of movement, including better body organization and coordination. Increased flexibility and mobility, as well as physical and emotional agility and vitality, are experienced. Posture and balance are improved; reducing the risk of overuse and injury. Designed to evoke a more holistic use of yourself, the lessons teach the nervous system to find new pathways to movement. As the lessons progress, participants become more aware of undesirable movement habits. Lessons are usually experienced in lying down or sitting position, and in a manner that respects each participant’s own ability and range of motion.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT ON MY FIRST VISIT
At our first session, I will allow for additional time to dialogue in more detail about the motive for your visit (you may have already provided some information via e-mail or over the phone). Our first visit will be the Functional Integration® application. Come in comfortable clothes like sweat shirt (no hoodies) and sweat pants or leggings. I will work with you one-on-one while you are lying on a table (similar to a massage table but lower), or sitting on a chair. Please allocate between 75 and 90 minutes for the first session . The following Functional Integration® sessions will be between 50 and 60 minutes. I may advise you to participate in Awareness Through Movement® sessions as well.
