I am pleased to offer you individual hands-on Feldenkrais sessions, known as Functional Integration®.

Functional Integration is a highly individualized hands-on learning process that can help you to:

  • Ease back, neck, shoulder and other joint pain
  • Improve your balance and flexibility
  • Reduce stress and destructive thought patterns
  • Breathe better and sleep better
  • Raise the level of your athletic, musical or artistic performance

I work with a variety of clients of different ages, occupations, and fitness levels to improve movement, body awareness and personal well-being.  In particular, many clients who have worked with me privately have found solutions to their neck and back pain, balance issues and self-destructive thinking patterns.

During a private Functional Integration session – sometimes called an “FI” – you rest, fully clothed, usually on a table, but sometimes in a chair or in other positions. I will use gentle touch, dialogue, and guided movement explorations to help you find new, easier movement pathways, and let go of unnecessary tension patterns that may be causing you pain and discomfort.

I will work with you to craft an individual program specifically tailored to your difficulties, challenges, and goals.  In each session we will have the opportunity to explore new options to help you improve your posture, flexibility, and overall ease of movement.  We will identify the habitual patterns of movements that do not serve you and discover new alternatives that can open up new freedom of movement both in body and mind.
