I guess because I have school age kids, I always think of fall with the lens of new beginnings.
I always love the freedom of summer.... and I always look forward to the structure of getting back to school (and work) in the fall. I hope you all are having a great summer and wish you some wonderful memory-making experiences as we dive into August.
Reflections of Spring/Summer
One new-to-ABM mama shared about her experiences in her daughter's first ABM lesson series:
Angie had her second and third treatment of the Anat Baniel Method today. Tonight, the most amazing thing ever happened........Angie (left functional hemispherectomy) said, "Mom, Righty wants to hold your hand." And Righty did ! Her hand opened completely on its own and wrapped around mine. This has NEVER happened before!! Angie has three more treatments scheduled this week and I cannot wait to see what happens. I am a believer!!
We are so excited!
Changes to MoveAbilities
Have you tried my online scheduling feature? It's easy and convenient. All you do is just click the button on my website that says "schedule a lesson." From there it will take you to the Portland Wellness Professionals scheduling site and you can choose Anat Baniel Method and find a day/time that works for you. Here is direct link to the site: MoveAbilities Schedule
If you are traveling to Portland and want to check weekend availability, you'll still have to just email or call.
As of September 1, 2016 my prices will increase. There are a number of reasons why I am choosing to do this. To begin with, it has been 3 years since I have raised my lesson price. Over the past 3 years, I have moved offices into the beautiful, welcoming space we call Portland Wellness Professionals. I have also continued my education by participating in an advanced training annually with the masterful Sylvia Shordike. With my increased business costs and as well as the increase in my level of expertise and experience, I feel it is time for me to bring my pricing up to the value I give to each individual that I work with. The changes are as follows:
Individual sessions will be $100/lesson
A series of 5 or more will be $95/lesson
A series of 10 or more will be $85/lesson
A series is a cluster of lessons all booked together with lessons given within a 1 or 2 week period (depending on the series size). I will continue to stand by the statement: I do not want finances to keep you from ABM. I will offer flexible payment plans, if needed, as well as some scholarships. Please contact me directly with questions or concerns.
All lessons booked before September 1, 2016 will be honored at my current prices. This does not mean that the lessons need do be given by Sept 1, but booked and on the calendar. So, if you are feeling organized and ready to put down some dates, please go online and book ahead for a discount. I will invoice all lessons by Sept 1, but payment will be due at the time of service.
Meeting your needs...
I would love to continue to support your families through lessons... however, I can do more!
Are you interested in a workshop or class?
I have created a quick form with only 5 questions. Please take a moment to fill it out and give me feedback as to how I can meet your needs. My hope is to create a new offering for the fall. Your input is valuable. I will collect data until Sept 1 and for those who participate, I will randomly draw one to give a free lesson. Thanks for participating. Here 's the link below:
