What is Somatic Therapy?
Clinical Somatic Movement is a safe and gentle practice appropriate for any fitness level. The slow, deliberate nature of the exercises allows your nervous system to connect more effectively with your muscles. This “resets” the muscles and allows them to return to a more relaxed state. It is effective for reducing the physical effects of day-to-day work, and can ease symptoms from past injuries and chronic tension.
During a session with Tania, she will assess your posture, discuss where you are feeling the most tension in your body, and lead you through a customized series of relaxing exercises to address it. Following the exercises she will guide you through restorative yoga poses to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system and allow your muscles to further release.
A session aims to ease tension, focus the mind, and guide you through sensing your muscles to deepen your connection with your own biomechanics.
Tania’s personal journey through years of chronic shoulder pain brought her to restorative movement education. She is dedicated to helping her clients tune into their bodies and unravel their persistent tension and pain, through gentle, methodical movement.
