Are individual Feldenkrais lessons like a massage?


Yes and no.

How Functional Integration is like a massage:

  • The client needs to make an appointment
  • The client describes any problem areas
  • The client discloses any previous injuries
  • The lesson is at the client’s own personal risk
  • The client may lie on a massage table
  • It can be relaxing


How Functional Integration is not like a massage:

  • The client is clothed at all times (the shoes and belt are usually removed by the client for lesson purposes)
  • The client participates in the movements by being aware of them during the lesson
  • The client must report any pain or discomfort, so that the practitioner can avoid any damage to the client
  • It may be relaxing at times and surprising at others
