                      Functional Integration®  
                             Feldenkrais Method®
                              Private, Hands-on

During these sessions I physically guide you through developmental movement sequences. We observe your normal patterns, gently encouraging your body's conscious and unconscious ability to sense and respond to movement.

Proprioception in moveable joints and sensory input from skin and internal organs provide the brain with information about our movement and orientation in space. Harmonious functioning of these systems leads to refined, graceful movement.

Injury, illness and established movement habits can throw the body off. Functional Integration® fine-tunes interactions within the neuro-muscular-skeletal system. During a session your body can learn new, comfortable, efficient patterns of movement in a unique way.
The process is so subtle that new students are often surprised by how much better they feel while standing, sitting, walking and engaging in other kinds of functional movements. They often describe feeling taller, lighter, more comfortabe, greater flexibility, better coordination, and more relaxed.
