Somatics is really easy to do and suitable for everyone regardless of experience, age or level of flexibility. It involves using slow, mindful movement to become more aware of our bodies and minds, to release habitual patterns and to connect more deeply to our ourselves from within.
Stress, trauma and injury cause tension in our muscles leading to stiffness, soreness and weakness. The body compensates leading to poor posture and habitual holding patterns, effecting our overall well-being and weakening our immune system..
Somatic movement targets over-contracted muscles to release stress and trauma. It also creates awareness and rewires your brain to reconnect to tired muscles that have "forgotten" how to do their job.
Somatics can help with stress, anxiety and chronic pain. It also really helps with core strength and posture and is effective for tight shoulders, diastasis recti, pelvic floor issues.
Up to 100% of the cost is covered by health insurance when you are trained in hypnobirthing by a registered midwife.
