How do you pronounce Feldenkrais?
Felden-krais (rhymes with rice)
Where is your clinic?
I am working out of a clinic space in Wallingford Family Chiropractic on Wednesday’s and Saturday’s.
4507 Sunnyside Ave N. Suite C, Seattle WA 98103
I also provide house calls under special circumstances. I bring my work table to your home or office for your convenience. Please be sure to have a quiet and open space for the session. I service the greater Seattle area, including King and Snohomish Counties.
How many sessions will I need?
Due to the exploratory nature of this work, more than 1-2 sessions is needed in order to learn and notice changes in your habitual movements. During your first consultation visit, we will determine your individualized plan. Most people find lasting changes after 6+ sessions, hence it is the preferred package option.
I’m still not sure Feldenkrais is the right fit for me, how can I learn more?
I offer a complimentary 30 minute phone consultation to help decipher your needs and address your concerns. Phone number is on the Contacts section of this site.
Do you take insurance?
CMB Movement Therapy, PLLC is an Out-of-Network provider.
While I do not bill insurance companies in the traditional sense, upon request, I can provide you with a “superbill” (or detailed receipt of services) after each session. You will be able to use this superbill in order to submit a claim to your insurance company for reimbursement. Payment will still be collected at time of service.
How does that work? — Because I am also a licensed Physical Therapist, this allows me to bill your Feldenkrais sessions as physical therapy (PT). This is not the case with most other Feldenkrais practitioners who do not have a secondary medical license.
Do you take credit cards?
Yes, I also accept checks and cash.
What can I expect from my first session?
The first consultation visit will be around 90 minutes. You will wear non-restrictive clothes, including socks. I will ask you questions about your pain or problem areas and assess how your body moves in a variety of daily tasks. You will receive a Functional Integration (FI) session on your first visit. See “Private Sessions” section for more details on FI.
How is Feldenkrais different from massage?
Feldenkrais is done fully clothed. This work differs from massage in that there is a “reprogramming” of muscles instead of just relieving muscular tension. Most people report an immediate reduction in pain or increase in fluidity of movement, and over time they discover lasting, specific improvements in the movements of their everyday lives.
