SOMATIC MOVEMENTDiscovering Freedom & Ease in Movement
Life is all about change. Living well is about responding to the changes around us, to allowing the uncertainty of life not to overwhelm us.
If we can be flexible and respond with ease we can navigate life with a lightness and sense of well being.
The phrase, ‘body follows mind’ expresses how much influence thought and language can have over our health.
Somatic movement allows us to feel into our bodies and really experience what is happening, through creating space & time to listen to those forgotten places, allowing us to find ease in our body and mind.
Learnt movement patterns create pathways which become furrowed tracks. If these paths become limited, then multiple landscapes within will be forgotten. There is a richness and diversity within this tapestry of our bodies.
Our neural pathways can divert through injury, trauma, emotional & phycological closing down. This can affect our functional everyday movements and limit our lives in many ways.
In these one – one sessions we will begin with meditation and then through guidance, both verbal & touch we will explore opening up and awakening any inhibited areas. Re-awakening the proprioceptors to create new & healthy neural pathways.
‘The following of the body’s direction and being with the unknown fits so well with the way I work in my own practice.
The insights my body gave me were so appropriate to issues that I know I am still working through, understanding that my body knew what it needed was so affirming’.
‘It’s magic, I feel so much more like my old self. I think there was a big emotional block from the past which seems to have cleared, or is continuing to clear.
My whole body is lighter’.
Does your body feel stuck?
You’re Not Alone. And I’m Here to Help!
Learning how bodies move also taught me to see how bodies don’t move. How they can become stuck and lost in patterns of limited belief systems.
Whether these particular movement pathways have come about through a traumatic incident or habitual use, the result is often a closing down and restriction of movement. My dance training informs my life’s practice towards developing freedom in movement, leading to ease in how we live our lives.
I work with sports injury, repetitive use and both acute & chronic conditions, within my Remedial Practice. In these sessions I use postural & movement assessments with rehabilitation, in helping people to move forward and progress.
