My Approach

My movement therapy practice combines the healing art forms of Physical Therapy, Feldenkrais®, Hakomi™, Qi Gong, and Yoga. This wide spectrum of modalities provides the tools that can address your unique therapeutic needs. My work is based on helping you become an active participant in recreating your own movement vitality. Through both individual sessions and group classes, I guide you to discover the patterns of movement and behavior that better serve your current needs and aspirations.

Individual Sessions

• Quiet private setting

• One hour sessions

• Wearing comfortable clothing

• Hands on therapy combined with active movement

Individual sessions begin with clarifying the specific causes for your pain and physical limitations. Each session begins with a profound listening to the body. I use gentle hands-on manual therapies to address structural imbalances. The result is reduced pain and greater freedom of physical action. You will learn more comfortable and efficient ways of moving. Restoring your movement capabilities often involves gentle explorations of the way you breathe, sit, stand, walk, use the computer, and participate in sports. By learning to move as a whole person you will experience improved flexibility, coordination, and functional strength.

Your Movement Practice

I develop a personalized movement program that provides you with a repertoire of movements to address the changing needs of your body.

These include therapeutic movements from:

• Feldenkrais®

• Bones for Life™/Walk for Life™

• Qi Gong

• Restorative Yoga

• Sounder Sleep System™

• Use of therapy props

Personally designed for you, drawing from this pallete of movement modalities.

The key to your movement practice is developing the ability to listen to your felt senses. Often your body reveals the true story line that your mind wants to deny. What is essential is to have an array of self-healing movement practices that can facilitate the rebalancing of your body and mind. In our work together you will learn to recognize and respond to your changing conditions. You will develop specific tools to regularly engage in a self-directed movement practice.
