Functional Integration (FI)

Functional Integration (FI)

Functional Integration (FI) lessons are where the teacher guides the client in movement lessons using gentle hands-on non-invasive touch as the primary means of communication.

In a Functional Integration lesson, the Feldenkrais teacher’s touch reflects to the client how they currently organize their body and actions. The teacher suggests, through gentle touch and movement, expanded possibilities for new movement patterns which are more comfortable, efficient, and useful.

Functional Integration lessons are flexible in their approach, determined by the client’s needs. The client may lie comfortably on a table designed specifically for the work, or do some of the lesson sitting or standing. As needed, the teacher may also use various props to support the student’s comfort, make certain movements easier, or clarify a movement.
