Functional Integration (FI) sessions are tailored to each individual, and are beneficial for anyone at any time. It can be particularly helpful for people experiencing big transitions or reorganizations in their lives, those needing a chance to calm their nervous systems, artists and athletes who want to refine their action, and anyone who is feeling curious about creating more possibilities for their whole self.
WHAT TO EXPECT
One-to-one sessions take place at my home studio often on a Feldenkrais table (similar to a massage table). You remain fully clothed during the session, aside from removing your shoes, and your comfort is prioritized. If possible I will organize the session around a request you have for yourself, be it an activity you want to be better at, a part of you that feels unintegrated, or some other desire. FI Sessions are hands-on, using gentle touch and movement to connect into your nervous system as a way to reset, restore, energize and expand your potential.
Cost per session is $50-$100 sliding scale (cash/check/venmo/ paypal). If cost is a barrier, you can book a Pay-As-Able Session (I'm also open to discussing trades). Pay-As-Able Sessions are available 5 days in advance.
WHERE DOES A SESSION HAPPEN?
One-to-one sessions take place at my home studio at A-Mill Artists Lofts centrally located in the beautiful Marcy-Holmes neighborhood of Minneapolis, near the Stone Arch Bridge.
HOW DO I GET THERE?
BY CAR: A-Mill is conveniently located near the University Ave/4th St exit of I-35W and just blocks from Central Av SE and E Hennepin Av.
BY BUS: The nearest Metro Transit stop is at University Ave and 4th Ave on the 6 line and 250 line.
WHERE CAN I PARK?
There is metered parking available on Main St, 2nd St, and 4th Ave surrounding A-Mill. Free street parking can be found on 2nd St (between 5th and 6th Aves) and on 5th Ave (between 2nd St and University Ave). If using a meter, please pay for 90 minutes of parking so you have a buffer around your session time.
HOW DO I GET INTO THE A-MILL BUILDING?
You can enter A-Mill at either the front door on Main St SE or the rear door on the alleyway behind the building. Both entries have call boxes. After you book a session you will receive a confirmation email with details about how to be let in.
IS A-MILL ACCESSIBLE?
A-Mill is ADA accessible. Let me know if you have specific accessibility needs or requests.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
You can feel free to wear anything that is comfortable. Generally clothing that is not too loose or too tight is helpful. Though I try to keep the temperature in my home studio at a good level, it can be helpful to wear or bring layers for your comfort. There is a bathroom for you to change clothes before and/or after the session if you'd like.
