Feldenkrais Method ®
The Feldenkrais method has two aspects: Awareness Through Movement®, ATM and Functional Integration®, FI. In both cases the sensory and nervous systems are appeased and space is made for the body to develop heightened body movement conscience, gain mobility and find comfort.
During Functional Integration® sessions, body movements are initiated by the practitioner with her hands, while in Awareness Through Movement ® the practitioner guides the participants verbally into various movements.
Functional Integration ®
How a session unfolds
The participant lies down on a
table (either on the back, side or stomach) or sits on a chair. The participant
wears his/her/their own comfortable clothes. With her hands, softly and without intrusion, the practitioner guides the
participant into tiny and smooth movements, allowing the participant to
discover their own functional capacities. With a gentle touch, the practitioner
invites the participant to pay close attention to any kinesthetic sensation
that may arise. Through this exploration, the participant is made aware of new
possibilities of physical organisation.
