Clinical Somatics (also known as Clinical Somatic Education or "CSE") is a highly effective form of neuromuscular retraining that alleviates chronic pain and improves physical functioning and mobility for clients. CSE stands out from other forms of bodywork (physical therapy, massage, chiropractic) in that it relies upon client participation to provide sensory feedback, not just to muscles and nerves, but to the brain.
CSE most effectively treats chronic musculoskeletal contraction that results from stress, trauma, and repetitive movement. These conditions include: back pain, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, TMJ, tendonitis, bursitis, thoracic outlet syndrome, scoliosis, chronic headaches, sciatica, knee, hip and shoulder pain, and myofascial pain syndromes. The course of treatment is shorter and more long lasting than physical therapy programs, chiropractic, or manual soft tissue therapies.
