Functional Integration® is a non-verbal, hands-on form of ATM® using kinesthetic communication. It is effective when a person, with any variety of injuries or disconnection with one's sense of self, has lost the ability to help oneself.

It  turns to the oldest element of our sensory system -Touch- with the feeling of pull and pressure known in the depth of our cells. Through gentle touch and easy movement the practitioner communicates how the person is organized and how to re-organize. The person becomes absorbed in sensing the diminishing of muscular tonus, the deepening and regularity of breathing, abdominal ease and improved circulation.

The Feldenkrais Method®

provides the foundation for Kachina's

knowledge and intuition

in assisting the healing process

The Awareness Through Movement teacher verbally guides you through a sequence of gentle movements to help you develop a greater awareness of how you move.

You are enabled to learn at your own rate of understanding and doing and are given time to assimilate the ideas and to perceive and organize yourself efficiently.

You learn to keep the essential and to drop unintended and unnecessary efforts.

It uses gentle movement and directed attention to improve how we move and function.

It can increase range of motion, improve flexibility and coordination, and can help you rediscover your innate capacity for graceful, efficient use of your body without pain.

You become aware of habitual neuro-muscular patterns and learn to make different choices bringing freedom from pain, better balance, and a clearer sense of self.
