Private Feldenkrais® Sessions are the fastest way to move past the habits that limit you and cause you discomfort.
If you’re tired of life feeling like one big episode of "Manage My Pain," I get it. I’ve worked with people just like you. I can show you gentle, safe ways to reverse patterns of chronic muscular tension that actually work. But more than that, I can help you to break free of the lifestyle habits that keep you stuck in pain.
My mission is to provide you with knowledge, skill, and awareness that you need to move beyond pain and into a life that you love.
How It Works
From our first session we begin to explore how your habits of moving, thinking, sensing, and feeling have formed the foundation for your current quality of life.
For those who come to my TROY, NY office
for a Functional Integration® session…
We’ll focus on hands-on work. As you lie fully clothed on a low table, we’ll work with your nervous system through gentle touch, slow movement, and verbal guidance.
Every single lesson addresses your specific needs and history. I’ll meet you where you are in each moment. As we go through the lesson, I’ll respond and adapt to subtle shifts in your muscle tone, breathing, skeletal connection, and sensation.
You will leave with customized tools to use at home to continue your learning. You will leave with customized tools to use at home, to practice, to integrate, and then come back for further learning.
Many of my clients integrate this work into their lifestyle. Initially, they use the Feldenkrais Method® as a form of practice to reduce pain, and to stay mobile, flexible, and resilient. Eventually, they do it because they engage differently with themselves and with life. And because, they have shifted from being pushed by their pain to being pulled by their dreams.
By now, I’m sure that you know that real change doesn’t happen overnight, and it takes time to develop new habits.
All of the work that I do as a Feldenkrais Practitioner® involves taking time to develop your awareness, expand your knowledge, and hone in on the skills you need to be successful. As part of that process, we’ll tap into the power of neuroplasticity to help you to rewire your pain and regain your life. Once you’ve mastered the process of working with yourself in this way, you’ll THRIVE.
I invite you to think of this work as a path and a practice, like meditation or playing an instrument. It’s a skill to be developed over time and where there is no end to improvement.
Most of the people that I work with commit to a package of 10-sessions.
Because, our work together is a process and the ten sessions allows us 3-4 months to shift old habits and create sustainable change.
Just consider how long it took you to get where you are! Like any other lifestyle change that yields greater well-being and vitality, the time and investment you put in is linked to your results.
I am here to support you every step of the way.
How many lessons?
As each lesson builds on the last, a series of lessons close together brings the most benefit.
Improving a specific issue could take between five and ten lessons. However, Severe or chronic situations—long-term persistent pain or pain from an autoimmune disorder—often require more.
For most, the drastic change in how how they move through life inspires them to keep learning. So, many people continue with Awareness Through Movement® classes, audio programs, or private lessons as a power part of their health and wellness regimen.
