Why Learn Somatic movement?

...and what is it?

Learning Somatic exercises emboldens you to heal your body by yourself.  You will have the tools to move your body in a gentle way that restores balance and  brings ease.  This is a highly effective tool for creating lasting results to your brain and your body.  Somatic movement has the potential to help every condition and every type of body;- as long as you are willing and/or able to focus. People have found relief from headaches, stiff or painful joints and muscles, fatigue, breathing problems, impaired movement, accident trauma and whiplash effects, back pain, and repetitive use/stress injuries. Athletes benefit from Somatic movement in post sport recovery. The improvement of posture not only helps us in every day life, but will add to improvements in a sport.  I personally  benefited from Somatic movement during the Pandemic shut down when I replaced massages with my own personal Somatic movement routine. Every Somatic session results in deep relaxation and an uplifted emotional state.  Sessions are in a private setting using the floor or a massage table in Santa Barbara and Montecito.  Please contact me here for further information.  ZOOM APPOINTMENTS ARE AVAILABLE!
