About the Event
No matter who you are, throughout your day, just beneath your consciousness, your muscles are holding tension.
Some of this tension is incredibly necessary - it helps you sit and stand upright and move forward through life. But the unnecessary tension can come from a smorgasbord of origins: injury, compensations during injury recovery, emotional or physical trauma, low level stress, postural habits, the list goes on. Eventually, for many of us, this starts to cause chronic pain, and sometimes results in structural damage! It can even impact the function of your organs!
In this 90 minute introductory workshop, we will explore the principles of a Somatic Movement practice, how and why it works, and go to work on exploring and releasing common muscle tension found in the body. Clinical Essential Somatics is a slow and intentional movement modality geared to re-educate movement and release muscle tension at the level of the nervous system, bringing the subconscious tension patterns to the surface of your consciousness, and eventually releasing the patterning altogether.
Beginners are encouraged to join, but folks with Somatic Movement experience are also welcome. There are always layers to peel back when it comes to deep nervous system work.
