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.

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.

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

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.

Joint Pain

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

Foot Pain

Looking at a clients feet is a great way to understand the amount of musculo-skeletal dysfunction of the entire body. As the part of our body that has to negotiate the final details of walking, standing, etc, the feet will often take on a lot of pain and structural breakdown.
Due to the number of bones and joints in the feet and their relative size, the feet can take on many shapes and configurations.
As an example of this, people use the terms "flat feet" and "high arches" to describe conditions of the arches of the foot.

Spinal Stenosis

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

Breathlessess / Shortness of Breath

Chronically contracted muscles of the abdomen, chest, back, and waist can easily restrict the inhalation and exhalation of breath. There is a complicated and beautifully orchestrated pattern of muscular coordination between the diaphragm, the abdominal muscles, the chest, neck, and shoulder muscles, the muscles between the ribs, as well as the back and waist muscles that must occur in order to enable deep and easy breathing.

Scoliosis

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

Constipation

Common wisdom has always dictated that exercise increases healthy bowel function. Recent research in the field has not shown a correlation between jogging, for instance, and healthier bowel function, however there are many reasons why Clinical Somatics can improve a condition of constipation, and we can see where there is still wisdom in the correlation between movement, exercise and proper elimination.
