What is Somatic Movement?
Somatic movement is a gentle effective movement technique where we learn specific movements to release tension and pain. Techniques where we relearn our natural impulse towards vitality and health.
"Somatic movement can help you address those recurring muscular pains and quality life patterns than never seem to fully go away."
Somatic Movement teaches us to recognise how daily life creates patterns and accumulates stress that gets stuck within our system. It is a functional movement system that acts as a key to unlock ease, mobility and alignment in the body.
It empowers us to move out of dysfunctional movement patterns and engage in techniques that release chronic pain find ease and spaciousness again.
Through gentle specific movements we retrain muscle memory and relieve pain for good.
“Somatic movement changes your muscular system by changing your central nervous system.”
Thomas Hanna- Founder of Clinical Somatics Education.

“My prolonged back-pain disappeared!”
“Thanks for the opportunity to practice Somatics. It's been a great experience learning and bringing awareness to my postural habits and finding gentle movements that help undo areas that I could never quite get rid of. I loved last week's class with the hip hikes never have my mid back, rib cage and hips felt as much space. I noticed the difference after the class as soon as I started walking. My left hip felt freer and more in line with my right. Can't wait to learn more cogs and bring more awareness to my practice.”
“I did 2 ½ hours driving and my neck felt long and space in-between neck and shoulders! So cool, and also I got a swim in the sea after work, heaven.”
