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.

Hip Pain

For information regarding Somatics and this condition, please contact the Somatic Systems Institute. Thank you.

Frequent Urination

Chronic tension in the abdominal muscles and the pelvic floor can restrict the expansion of the urinary bladder. When the bladder runs out of room, urination must occur.
Clinical Somatics works to free the muscles surrounding the bladder, thereby allowing it to hold more liquid before the need to urinate arises.
It is possible that frequent urination or incontinence are signs of other conditions, which should be discussed with your Doctor and Somatics practitioner.

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.

Knee Pain

For information regarding Somatics and this condition, please contact the Somatic Systems Institute. Thank you.

Tendonitis

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

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.

Hemroids

Balance Problems

There is a very intricate relationship between the movement of the eyes, the balancing organs of the inner ear, the musculature of the entire skeleton, the proprioceptive sense organs of the body, and the brain centers that equate and manage all of these factors.
