NeuroMovement® Intensives and Our Collaborative Approach
We have a collaborative team approach, which we have found to be extremely effective. Over time, you or your child will usually work with two or three of our Anat Baniel Method® (ABM) Center Practitioners.
At the ABM Center, we work with both adults and children in what we call “intensives.” Between visits, especially in the beginning, we often suggest 1-2 lessons a week until the next intensive. Whenever possible, we give people suggestions for what they can do on their own in their daily life, for themselves and their children.
“Anat applies the exact same principles when helping people overcome limitation that I used to recover my brain and body from stroke. She understands that for any meaningful change to happen in the way we think, move, and use our body, the change has to happen in the brain.” ~Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, PhD, Neuroanatomist, and Bestselling Author of My Stroke of Insight book and TED Talk
Consultations and Private Sessions
To schedule consults or private sessions with Anat Baniel or one of the ABM Center Practitioners in the San Rafael, California, ABM Center, we ask that you fill out a Lesson Request Form.
We require every request in writing, without exception.
We schedule consultations and appointments on a first-come, first-served basis in conjunction with Anat’s recommended program.
OUT OF THE COUNTRY CLIENTS (excluding Canada)
We recommend that you come for a minimum of two consecutive weeks, with an option to stay longer. Each week will consist of 10 lessons total.
- First week – Anat does one consult of up to 1 hour (including a full 1/2-hour lesson), and possibly one additional 30 minute lesson. The remaining 8-9 lessons are done by two of our ABM Center Team Practitioners: Neil Sharp, Michelle Vine, or Naomi Swanson.
- Second and additional weeks – Anat does 1-2 lessons (30 min). The remaining 8-9 lessons are done by two of our ABM Center Team Practitioners: Neil Sharp, Michelle Vine, or Naomi Swanson.
- Note: Chris Krzyzkowski is now our traveling ABM Center Practitioner.
OUT OF TOWN/STATE CLIENTS (including Canada)
Clients generally come for a minimum of one week (Monday-Friday), for a total of 10 lessons, one in the morning and one in the afternoon each day. Of the 10 lessons, Anat does one consult of up to 1 hour (including a full 1/2-hour lesson), and possibly one additional 30 minute lesson. The remaining 8-9 lessons are done by two of our ABM Center Team Practitioners: Neil Sharp, Michelle Vine, or Naomi Swanson.
Note: Chris Krzyzkowski is now our traveling ABM Center Practitioner.
We recommend starting with a consult with either Anat or one of our ABM Center Team Practitioners. Additional lessons may also be booked at the same week the consult takes place.
A consult is a full ABM NeuroMovement® one-on-one lesson + time at end for discussion, program recommendation, and follow up.
- Consult with Anat Baniel – up to 1/2-hour lesson + up to 1/2-hour discussion
- Consult with ABM Team Practitioner – 45-minute ABM lesson + 15-minute discussion
Team Practitioner – $300 consult – up to 1 hour
Team Practitioner – $250 per lesson – up to 45 minutes
Marcy Lindheimer – $285 per lesson – 30-35 minutes
Anat Baniel – $900 consult – 45 min. up to 1 hour
Anat Baniel – $400 per lesson – up to 30 minutes
Lesson Fees Calculations per intensive week of 10 lessons
(Local clients start with a consult, and may add additional single lessons in one week.)
Anat consult + 9 team lessons ($900+ $2,250) = $3,150
10 team lessons = $2,500
Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® is a learning-based method, not a medical provider. As a result, we are unable to assign treatment codes, submit insurance claims, or work with health insurance providers. We also do not keep medical records and thus are unable to supply them.
We are happy to provide you with a receipt indicating the number of lessons received, the amount paid, and the description of the services provided as “neuromuscular re-education” for you to submit to your health insurance company, if you so choose.
