Local Practitioner Expands Area of Practice

Christin Harvey, Feldenkrais Practitioner® and New York state licensed massage therapist is expanding her practice to include Orange and Westchester counties, Bergen County, New Jersey and the lower Connecticut area. She offers in-home massage and Functional Integration® lessons throughout the region and group Awareness Through Movement® (ATM) classes upon request.

“The Feldenkrais Method® uses a series of conscious controlled movements to make us more kinesthetically aware of our existing patterns,” says Harvey, “and ultimately guides us to discover more effective movement patterns.”

Harvey has over 15 years’ experience as a bodyworker treating all age groups, including pediatrics, adolescents and adults. Her treatment philosophy is simple: “My goal is to help my clients feel better so they can achieve their lifestyle and fitness goals by moving smarter and easier with less force and more natural grace,” she says.

Harvey often utilizes a two-step approach, initially reducing a client’s pain and discomfort with massage and then rehabilitating them with a variety of Feldenkrais techniques. She is always looking for ways to raise awareness of the Feldenkrais Method and is available to speak and lead group ATM classes at women’s clubs, Elks clubs, local libraries or senior centers upon request.
