What We Do — Feldenkrais for People
Functional Integration® Communicating through touch and words, the practitioner guides you through slow, safe movements that provide new learning to your neuro-muscular system.
People often experience immediate improvements in function, lightness of movement, and freedom from chronic discomforts. They also report feelings of relaxation and ease and find their thoughts have more clarity. New sensory-motor skill can be acquired at any age, and regardless of your condition.
Awareness Through Movement® (ATM) consists of verbally guided sequences and combinations of movements taught primarily to groups. These gentle lessons guide you through novel movement sequences in basic positions, including sitting or lying on the floor, standing, or sitting in a chair.
Often, you are invited to examine muscle tone, breathing, skeletal relationships, and the quality of your movement. These movement explorations involve thinking, sensing, moving and imagining.
The lessons challenge your brain to find new connections and movement pathways bringing about enhanced awareness and expansion of movement patterns, greater mobility and flexibility, fuller breathing, and an increased sense of well-being. As muscle patterns unwind and clarify, pain decreases and performance improves. The lessons provide a means to “know what you are doing, so that you can do what you want.”
