FUNCTIONAL INTEGRATION (student practitioner)
Charlotte Seirberg is a movement educator and mindfulness teacher with over 11 years experience. She is also Feldenkrais Practitioner (student teacher), and she is currently in the process of completing the hands-on aspect of the 4-year Feldenkrais training called Functional Integration®.
Feldenkrais® individual sessions are called Functional Integration®. The practitioner guides you using gentle, none-invasive touch as a way of communicating with you and your nervous system. You will get a sense of how you organise your body and actions/movements. Together we will explore your movement habits and discover new possibilities, which can be more efficient, comfortable and useful to you.
This is an embodied learning process, with an emphasis on rapport and respect for your abilities, qualities and integrity. Together we create a mindful learning environment, where you can learn in safety and comfort. In the session, you will be fully clothedeither in sitting, standing or lying on a mat. Small props will be used to ensure your comfort or to make a movement easier, or to bring more clarification to a particular movement.
After a session, you may noticed that unnecessary tension has been dissolved. Another discovery could be you are feeling more grounded, calmer and happier, perhaps you are breathing more fully which makes you
feel less anxious. Saying that you may be going about your daily activities, performance or work with more ease, lightness and joy.
Who is it for?Individual lessons are for anyone wishing to recover physical abilities, ease stress, tension and anxiety, find relief from chronic pain and fatigue, restore mobility, refine movement skills, improve breathing and posture.
Monica has been passionate about alternative therapies and yoga since 2007. Her massage journey started in India where she volunteered in a holistic clinic with therapists healing ailments and injuries through yoga, massage and Aromatherapy. The experience inspired her deeply to do healing and bodywork.
Over the years she explored different massage styles and thecniques which led her to complete an ITEC course in A+P Aromatherapy and Reflexology, and an ITEC Swedish massage. She also has qualifications in Deep tissue and Pregnancy massage.
She worked in corporates, events, community clinics and volunteer in gp practices and hospices offering treatments to people with special needs and conditions, elderly and woman in need of psychological support.
She discovered Thai massage in 2014 looking for a therapy where massage and yoga could be combined. Monica certified through the Sunshine School of Thai massage in Thailand with continuing education through several schools and masters in Thailand and Uk. Continuing to deepen her practice she travels to Asia on a regular basis. In 2018, in India she qualified as a Hatha Yoga Instructor.
Her Eastern and Western knowledge of the body creates a unique massage style which is specifically tailored to each individual client needs and can combines different elements such as stretchings, energy line work, deep and rhitmic pressure, trigger points therapy, promoting tension and stress release, flexibility, mobility and relaxation.
I discovered the world of bodywork through a knee injury which developed into a hip problem. I found conventional methods of therapy only worked in the short term. I began to get to know my body through various sports, dancing and yoga. The yoga helped me to understand the injury and heal it. Years later, with an insatiable yoga appetite and curiosity for how my body worked, I trained as a Sivananda yoga teacher and since then have learnt how to work with the body.
The various bodywork techniques I use have been acquired over the years through professional training and continued professional development (CPD). Some of them include Holistic Massage, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Lymphatic Drainage, Kahuna Hawaiian, Reflexology, Indian Head Massage, Thai yoga, Neuroskeletal Re-alignment therapy, Core Fascial Release and Deep Abdominal Colon Massage. I recently returned from New Zealand where i explored Maori Bodywork and healing.
During my treatments, I draw from the relevant sources to produce a therapy tailored to suit the client. I happily place myself in the role as and enjoy an ongoing learning process.
My experiences in study, life and with clients continually encourage me to look at ailments not just physically but spiritually and mentally, whether it be massage, body alignment, energy healing, yoga or a mindful walk in the park…an individual can journey back to their innate selves and promote healing.
I enjoy giving deep meditative massages as much as working with injuries, and strongly believe in every body’s ability to change and improve, thus impacting and changing lives for the better. Having a treatment is a space for the client to simply be.
Mario De Sousa is a Traditional Japanese Shiatsu Therapist in methods of Namikoshi and Seiki Meridian Shiatsu, also has qualification in traditional Thai Yoga & Trigger points massage.
Healing happens when the mind and body are connected to each other and to our own inner healing force. I have found that Shiatsu is a powerful tool to activate the communication between mind, body and spirit; helping us to reach our equilibrium and natural alignment. Shiatsu can help facilitate health, wellbeing and balance by harnessing the true power to heal: a force which always rests within you.
