“As I see it, every day you do one of two things: build health or produce disease in yourself.”
Somatic Well-Being aims to help individuals move more freely without pain.
Somatic Well-Being offers education, postural assessments, interventions, and exercise prescriptions that work toward better and lower cost pain management, more aligned posture with less effort, decreased pain and chronic tension, overall increased freedom in movement. We focus on using techniques that bring attention to one’s inner sensations, combined with slow, gentle movements which help one learn to engage the body in moving in a more efficient, balanced way. The result of more balanced use of one’s neuro-muscular system is a decrease in chronic tension and pain; greater productivity and well-being; and less dependency on pain medications or other supports for comfort. Individuals report positive results for ailments such as lower back pain, sciatica, neck pain, shoulder pain, and knee pain.
