I HAVE GONE VIRTUAL!!!!! ONE ON ONE sessions VIA ZOOM!!!!! Book a session today. :) Zoom sessions specialize in Life Coaching with Body Sustainability Tools.
I specialize in training Movement Artist. This includes athletes, acroyoga's, musicians, and women seeking empowerment tools of change.
Phoenix Functional PranaBreath Method focuses on Body Sustainability Practices that are integrated into Transpersonal Life Coaching, Movement Arts Coaching, Massage and Yoga.
As an integrative practitioner, I hope to bring about healing through the demonstration of my skills and by facilitating the healing power within the client. This can only be masterfully accomplished by skilled therapy and by educating the client regarding the power one has over their own pain. My mission is to facilitate healing with hands-on therapies and NOW Virtual Life Coaching that can provide pain relief and muscular changes, while helping educate necessary postural and lifestyle changes that may be interfering with the benefits of massage and personal training, allowing clients to embrace a pain free life. I hope to create an environment that is holistic in its nature, encompassing intelligence with compassion and warmth with practicality. I offer a tailored session that may include various types of bodywork and postural education that will enhance the bodywork. I also offer Corrective Postural Training and Yoga sessions by appointment. I specialize in Personal Training and Yoga that involves the core and stabilization exercises through utilization of our natural environment. No free weights or machines. I specialize in bringing about kinesthetic awareness through Yoga techniques, such as breath with movement and mindfulness. I believe in restoring primitive movements of development through biofeedback training in developmental positions and yoga positions, utilizing verbal and visual cuing as well as various massage modalities, which can be termed Somatic Integration in some schools of thought.
HOW HAS IFM EVOLVED to INCLUDE our current Global Pandemic Concerns? (IFM is now Phoenix Functional PranaBreath Method)
Phoenix Functional Prana Yoga and Massage is now available Via Zoom Virtual Sessions
Virtual Sessions Specialize in Life Coaching, Body Sustainability Coaching, and Health and Wellness Life Coaching. All utilizing the Phoenix Functional PranaBreath Method.
Rebekah began developing Phoenix Functional PranaBreath Method in 2009 as her Integrative Functional Massage Protocols were becoming a huge hit with her athletes, dancers, musicians and yogis. IFM evolved into further PFPM when, Rebekah graduated with a Hatha Yoga Certification in 2012 and then again evolved in 2016 after Rebekah sustained a life changing spinal injury that demanded she do tons of rehab, self care and re examining her life goals and ambitions.
This type of work is specific for individuals who want to become physically stronger both in power, precision and endurance. My approach is a total body workout, through the integration of cognitive/mind and body approach. Isolated co-synergistic movements require attention; attention requires perseverance and discipline. These philosophies work well with martial artists, dancers, yogis, performers, athletes, corporate speakers, mothers, fathers, actors, musicians and anyone interested in evolving and learning more about themselves and embracing the empowerment that parallels this quest.
To summarize in one phrase; to encompass it all; I have defined what I do as Integrative Functional Massage™ . Integrative Functional Massage™ /(now Phoenix Functional PranaBreath Method) is the combination of Orthopedic Massage, Restorative/Corrective Postural Training, and Functional Yoga - Yes all in ONE session. We can break it down to just one of those disciplines but as an Integrative Practitioner, I encourage the Complete Package, for the Complete Experience! IFM is both a Mind-Body Movement Protocol as well as a belief system. It represents in philosophy, my belief in the power of the Integration of both paradigms of medicine: Holistic and Allopathic. I believe in seeing myself and all of my community as Whole Beings, not just an arm or leg, or an athlete or a client. I believe in the Real Power in achieving this Integration, this perspective which leads to a more Balanced Body and Mind. It is about the duality, the science and the art.
Integrative Functional Massage™/ (now Phoenix Functional PranaBreath Method) is Me. It is you. It is the way to reaching our true potentials in self and in our communities - locally and globally. It is the intention I set for myself daily. It is my wish for all of you to experience and live.
Integrative Functional Massage™/ Phoenix Functional PranaBreath Method, can be broken down extremely mechanistically and be utilized to assess gait, posture and movement as it relates to your Orthopedic, sports, or pain management goals. Also, We can utilize the Method to work with Life Coaching goals such as navigating through life transitions , huge changes that are shifting our perspectives and empower one to be resilient and adapt to the change with gratitude, grace and grit. Whether my Method is working with Women Empowerment Life Coaching or Athletic Injury Recovery, I remind you to Think INTENSITY, DURATION, FREQUENCY. Or rather, Fiercely Facing Fears with intelligence and skill.
Regardless of who you are or what your goals are: Intelligently, skillfully and compassionately integrating the Method into all your needs, with Empower you, restore you, bring out your natural resiliency, and rejuvenate both mind and body.
I am excited to be specializing in bringing about awareness of how IFM /PFPBM can help those with PTSD and performance anxieties through stress reduction and stress management. It is my belief that the interdisciplinary approach to treatment of PTSD utilizing EMDR and Integrative Functional Movement will help to facilitate Whole Being healing and reprocessing through a true mind-body connection. I would like to recommend the following three local EMDR providers who specialize in treating PTSD with the highly beneficial EMDR modality.
If you have PTSD and are looking for practitioners, I recommend Mira Tessman in Baltimore Maryland : www.yogafordepression.com
and to look for Certified EMDR therapist: www.emdria.org
