Somatic Movement

Somatic movement is a sequence of movement techniques, specifically aimed to address habitual muscle imbalances from injury, stress and other health conditions. It helps to restore health and vitality ranging from a sense of calm through to feeling energized. The somatic movements lengthen tight muscles at a neurological level, allowing the body to restore healthy muscle tone and function.

Through sedentary lifestyles and stressful experiences, more tension can build in our muscles to the extent of it changing at the neurological level, losing sensation of those muscles and the ability to release them, which causes changes to our posture and in turn our psychological state. Chronic tension can lead to a variety of conditions including raised blood pressure, anxiety, depression, IBS and pain.

Pandiculation is a process of Somatic movement which retrains those held stresses and accesses the neurological limitations in your body. It is unique in its ability to give you a set of skills in which you can continue to remove tension from your body with your own practice.

The movements are simple yet powerful and suitable for any level of experience or ability.
