Functional Integration®

With a practitioner’s precision of touch and movement, the student learns how to eliminate excess effort and to move more freely and easily.

Lessons may be specific in addressing particular issues brought by the student, or can be more global in scope. Although the method does not specifically aim to eliminate pain or “cure” physical complaints, such issues may inform the lesson. Issues such as chronic muscle or joint pain may resolve themselves as the student learns a more relaxed approach to his or her physical experience—a more integrated, effective, free, and easy way to move. The lesson may also aim to enhance function, well being and improve performance.
