Relieve stress

Through Somatic Movement Education you will experience relief of stress and anxiety as  you improve breathing, sleep, digestion, elimination, energy levels, digestion freedom of movement and chronic pain will not be an issue.

Chronic muscular tension can be directly attributed to psychological stress

Our bodies are naturally well equipped to recover from short-term, life-threatening stress. On the other hand, long-term, psychological stress can remain indefinitely, and its effects tend to build up and get worse over time. Muscular tension resulting from stress builds up as we get older, affecting our posture and making our movements stiff. Muscular tension is linked directly to psychological stress and mental activity, and it is extremely difficult to relax the mind and reduce stress if there is chronic muscular tension in the body. Muscular tension also raises blood pressure and leads to shallow breathing, both of which increase our stress level.

Somatics uses extremely slow, focused movements to train the nervous system to release our chronic muscular contraction. These movements help to reduce stress, relieve soreness and pain, and improve posture and movement.

In order to get lasting relief, you need to train your nervous system to release your chronically tight muscles

To reeducate your nervous system to keep your muscles released, you must engage in an active learning process consisting of slow, conscious movements. Passive methods such as stretching, massage, and chiropractic don’t have any lasting effect because they do not change the messages that your brain is sending to your muscles to stay tight.

Somatics is gentle, therapeutic, and suitable for all ages and physical abilities.
