A Special Offer for Functional Integration(R) – Community Outreach

Very recently, I participated in a forum exploring models for integrative healthcare,looking at from the patient’s perspective.  We were compiling a list of requirements, necessities, that clients need to have in their care.


Among those necessities mentioned was to make it accessible, affordable and to give back to the community. It got me thinking about what I do, how I do it and whether most people would be able to afford my services on a regular basis. Continue reading


Complimentary Functional Integration This Wednesday

Fool the Pain – Make it Go Away on April Fool’s Day

This April Fool’s day we won’t fool around: instead inviting you to a complimentary half hour session of Functional Integration(R), or FI for short.  This is the individualized session of the Feldenkrais Method(R), the somatic movement modality, that allows you, the recepient, discover your most optimal way to move, function, perform. It allows you – through mindful movement – to release tension, useless old patterns and pain. Combined with Awareness Through Movement or ATM(R) classes, the group version of the Method, you will become the director of the change you desire in yourself.

The method, that is the toast of the town and the subject of chapters in Norman Doidge’s new book: “The Brain’s Way of Healing”, is the mind/body discipline utilized; created by Moshe Feldenkrais and finally getting the attention it deserves. Instead of using repetitive action to “fix” something not functioning optimally in your body, it uses delicate and differentiated movement to go directly to the source, the brain itself. Through movement, using the learning/changing ability/plasticity of the brain, it allows for change to happen organically instead.

Application of the Feldenkrais Method(R), not only results in less pain, better function and performance physically, but in a more fundamental shift stemming from the adaptability of the brain and the nervous system, that will allow you to grow and change continually and optimally. Working with the this somatic mindfulness method is like being provided with an owner’s manual to your whole self, where you the owner, are in charge of your progress in body and mind, actually possessing the tools necessary to initiate and follow through with such change.

So this April Fool’s fool the pain, the difficulty and the stress and give yourself a break instead: come and have a half an hour session with me and celebrate the potentiality of change, growth and life itself! And maybe, just maybe, even spring 🙂

Sessions are available this Wednesday from 11:30 AM to 4:00 PM,

to book:  call 603-548-5511 – leave message with your preferred time(s)

I look forward to seeing you soon!

Origins of the Feldenkrais Method(R)

So how did Moshe Feldenkrais, physicist and judo master come about developing his original method instead of moving on as a talented physicist with a promising future?

We do know about his debilitating injury to his knee and his stubborn, albeit well founded refusal to have conventional treatment with a risky surgery and instead going his own way, experimenting, learning, even meditating on it, using every bit of knowledge and tool at his disposal, including applying psychology and becoming one of the pioneers of mind/body approaches.
