Health Conditions Helped by Somatics

A partial list of disorders that respond well to Clinical Somatic Education — with some improving or resolving completely in just a few sessions. Explore these topics (in short lists, more detail, or picture grids) to learn more about the science and approach used in addressing a disorder. Contact us to learn more.


Tendons are straps or bands of tissue that attach muscle to bone. As such, tendons are passive and do not get tight by themselves; they get tight when attached muscles tighten and shorten. Tendinitis (or tendonitis) occurs when a muscle stays tight for long periods, as happens when protective reflexes get activated by injury. Strain on the tendon and friction of the tendon on surrounding tissue irritate the tendon and lead to inflammation and pain: tendonitis

Relaxation and Stress Relief

Through the slow and mindful movements of Somatics, one becomes more centered and aware of the stresses of the body and mind. By consciously becoming aware, the client learns to release tension causing greater relaxation.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a set of symptoms, characterized by pain, weakness, tingling, or numbness of parts of the hand, brought about by the entrapment of the Median nerve between the carpal bones and ligaments of the wrist. CTS is generally associated with overuse, misuse, or repetitive stress, and can occur in musicians, packagers, typists, or anyone else who tends to use their hands repetitively.

Many headaches, including tension, sinus, and migraine types, are alleviated through Clinical Somatics by the lessening of habituated muscular tension of the neck and jaw muscles, shoulders, and back.

Tension in the neck can cause great pressure on the connective tissue around the skull, as well as the blood pressure sensors, vascular system, and nerves that innervate the head and neck.

Uneven Leg Length

Actual structural leg length discrepancies are very rare.

Most uneven leg length is functional. This means that the muscles of the waist, back,and hip, in conjunction with other muscles, are pulling one leg shorter than the other.

While this can be a part of and a cause of many other functional imbalances, it is most often readily corrected by a client and practitioner working together with very specific neuro-muscular reeducation techniques.

Frozen Shoulder / Adhesive Capsulitis

Sometimes interchanged with the term "frozen shoulder", adhesive capsulitis is the adhesion of the joint capsule to the bones of the shoulder joint. While this condition may cause scarring or other degradation of tissues of the shoulder, Clinical Somatics can help to restore the movement of the shoulder in a safe, non-invasive, and gentle way that allows for mobility and healing of the joint with long-lasting results. Most importantly, Somatics can address the functional issues that led to the condition to begin with, and prevent it from happening again.
