Somatic Movement

Somatic Movement is a means of resolving inefficient movement patterns and chronic pain that the body has developed through tension, stress, trauma or bad habit.

Somatic Movement lessons, 1:1 or in a group, are an active learning process as opposed to a passive treatment. It educates the sensory motor system to recover innate abilities for greater voluntary muscular control. It is physically and cognitively engaging and trains proprioceptive sensing. It helps release chronic neuromuscular contraction patterns and limited range of movement. Somatic education nourishes and improves the functioning of the whole person.

As we age certain muscle groups become less efficient through lack of use or bad habit. When we cannot control muscles as well as we used to this is known as neuromuscular amnesia. The only way to improve this is through active awareness and kinaesthetic perception of the muscles and a relearning of how to effectively coordinate their movements. This is our focus in a Somatic Movement Lesson.

Somatic Movement Lessons can be facilitated at home or by clinic visit.

1:1 sessions include hands-on feedback and supported movement.

Specific exercises will be recommended for the client’s daily practice to improve ease and range of movement in the body.
