Private Hands on Clinical Lessons are the fastest way to resolve chronic pain with Somatic Education. During each Lesson you will RELEARN correct control of a particular group of muscles and movements. Having precise sensory feedback from a properly trained practitioner results in quicker and more profound improvements. During the Lesson the clients comfort is paramount, if any pain or discomfort is experienced by the client we stop and make adjustments to enable us to carry on without pain. The bodies natural response to pain is contraction, as we are trying to induce relaxation, any pain whatsoever is counterproductive in Clinical Somatic Education.

I recommend a minimum of lessons for all clients. This allows us to address the Three Brain Reflexes and to perform extremity work, or repeat a lesson if required. It also allows for clients to learn and integrate all the new exercises and movements and cultivate their own Somatic Movement practice at home.


What Happens during a Clinical Somatic Education Lesson

After taking a detailed Client History, we begin by assessing your gait (walking pattern) and posture. Next we assess your muscle tonus (level of tension) whilst standing and also laying down on the work table. At this point, you will be guided through a series of specific movement sequences with hands on assistance from your practitioner. These movement sequences are designed to provide your Sensory Motor Cortex with new feedback which allows you to consciously and voluntarily relax muscles that have been chronically contracted. Once these movements have been completed you will be taught some simple and enjoyable Self Care Somatic Exercises that you can do at home to reinforce what you have learnt during the lesson. We close the Lesson after reassessing your gait and posture for improvements.

Clinical Lessons are relaxing, enjoyable and most importantly an EDUCATIONAL experience.


Private/Group Movement Class
Duration: 60mins

Private Movement Classes will leave you moving more freely, more comfortably and with less pain. During each Class you will RELEARN correct control of a particular group of muscles and movements through simple Somatic Movements. You can then perform these movements anytime to keep yourself moving pain free.


What Happens during a Movement Class

We begin by assessing posture and gait (Walking Pattern). The Client then lays down on their backs on a yoga mat or similar, where they are asked a series of questions designed to bring their attention to the sensations felt internally. They are asked to notice and sense imbalances and areas of tension etc. We also spend some time assessing breathing in this position. From here they are guided through a series of floor based Somatic movements specific to them. These powerful Somatic movements release and relax the whole body or a particular area of the body whilst increasing awareness and improving mobility and range of motion. Once the movements have been completed, we repeat the Body Scan sensing for changes we then finish the Class by repeating the walking assessment.

Movement Classes are an excellent introduction to Somatic Movement and its benefits.
