Somatic Movement enhances human function and body-mind integration through mindful and restorative movement. Somatic Movement Education and Therapy supports homeostasis, co-regulation and neuro-plasticity. Our practices incorporate: postural and movement observation and evaluation; experiential anatomy; and movement patterning that increases efficiency, while refining perceptual, kinesthetic and proprioceptive sensitivity. Our profession encompasses distinct methods each with their own educational or therapeutic emphasis, principles, methods and techniques.
