Essential Somatic Movement

Clinical Essential Somatics is a gentle movement practice which reeducates and recalibrates your muscles at the level of the nervous system. Overtime, the human body unconsciously adapt to the stresses of life (habits, injuries, overuse, etc) by developing nervous system patterns that, while originally meant to keep us safe, eventually cause tightness, discomfort, and pain. 

Through sensory-motor training and slow movements called pandiculations, Somatic Movement teaches methods for deeply sensing oneself from within. Ultimately, it releases muscles and re-educates the body back into effortless, expressive, and natural pain-free movement. 


TRE: Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises

TRE is an at-home self-care practice designed to release deep muscular tension, chronic stress, and many forms of trauma. It is taught in over 60 countries to bring relief to veterans, trauma survivors, and the everyday stressed out person. 

Through a series of exercises, you’ll activate neuromuscular tremors - your body’s natural mechanism for discharging excess tension that accumulates in your system after fight/flight/freeze responses. A regular TRE practice relieves the resulting chronic tension, anxiety, and stored trauma, returning the body to a healthy state of homeostasis. TRE is easy to learn and then execute on your own so you have a go-to method for stress relief.
