Somatic Movements are based upon the unique and pioneering work of Thomas Hanna. It is a revolutionary practice in neuromuscular movement re-education. You will retrain your brain to communicate to your muscles how to safely contract, lengthen and relax in a more effective and efficient way to improve movement and reduce or eliminate chronic muscle pain.
Somatic Movement helps with cancer recovery, arthritis, bursitis, fibromyalgia, lupus, shoulder immobility, sciatica, scoliosis, neck/back/hip/knee pain, hip or knee replacement surgery, as well as other conditions.

How Can Somatic Movements Help Me?

In order to address the root cause of your discomfort, Somatic Movements will support you in exploring how there may be tension in your body as a result of repetitive activities, injury, trauma, surgery or ongoing stress. What was once an adaptive movement to help you through a stressful experience becomes “the new normal” when consistently repeated creating full body habituated reflexes. This, in turn, causes muscles to become stuck in contraction producing muscular tension, aches and pain.

This is Sensory Motor Amnesia (SMA). Your brain has gone into “auto-pilot” involuntarily controlling the muscle movement or lack thereof from the learned adaptive movement pattern. Since these unconscious movement patterns that have caused the SMA have been learned they can also be unlearned through a sensory motor method called Pandiculation.

Pandiculation requires your active participation and involves three elements:

a conscious contraction of the muscles holding tension followed by
a slow controlled conscious lengthening of the muscles and
complete relaxation of the muscles.

* Please bring a mexican, heavy cotton or wool blanket to lay on, to provide extra cushioning between you and the floor.
