What happens in an individual Feldenkrais session?
You might arrive with a specific issue such as lower back pain, stiff shoulders, balance or dizziness issues or perhaps you simply want to feel better aligned and less “creaky”. I’ll do a general assessment and then will gently encourage your body to release muscle tension so that you can move with more freedom and confidence. This is a hands-on treatment where you may spend most of the time lying on my treatment table; if appropriate, you might be sitting or standing for some of the time – it depends on what will work best for you. A one-to-one session (also called “Functional Integration”) is an ideal way to learn how your body moves and to undo unhelpful movement habits. Sometimes a single session can make a huge difference, a recent client said: “I feel like I have a whole new body!
Individual Taster sessions. If you are new to The Feldenkrais Method you can contact me for an Individual taster session. This is a half hour one to one session where we discuss what would be useful for you, I’ll give you some feedback and a short individual Feldenkrais class. Following this, you can book more one to one sessions or join a group class (group class timetables are different throughout the year).
Home Visits and Special Group sessions.
From time to time I do work with people who have difficulty travelling so, if appropriate, I can visit you in your home but I will have to charge extra for this. To arrange this, please give me a call on 07708 055309 as every home visit is individually designed for your best needs.
If you have a group of friends or colleagues who would like a taster session then I can travel to you. All you need is a clean floor space with enough room for everyone to lie down on a yoga mat or blanket.
Individual sessions are usually £45 for an hour. Most people benefit from 2-3 sessions and so if you book 3 sessions in advance the total cost is £120. Of course, you might want to come regularly over a long period of time! If so, we can sort out a price that suits you best (its always cheaper to pay in advance).
