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.

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.

Injury Prevention

Clinical Somatics doesn't only correct chronic contractions that underly the majority of chronic pain conditions.  It also corrects misalignments, muscular mis-firings, and habituated muscular mis-use and tensions which lead to some of the most common sports injuries and other movement injuries.

Successful Aging

Aging has come to be thought of a disease process in it’s own right. We consider the act of simply living on the planet as it’s own pathogen that results in our decline. While the many processes we think of as aging are obviously complex and not entirely understood, we assume “aging" as default cause almost anytime someone has musculoskeletal problems, aches, pains, or loss of energy and function. This is the nature of a “myth”: A myth is a story that may or not be true, but we accept it as legitimate and use it as an explanation for why certain things are the way they are.

TMJ Syndrome

Temporomandibular joint dysfunction syndrome, or "TMJ", describes a broad range of symptoms in the jaw, neck, and teeth including pain, restrictions in movement and bite, misalignments, noisy joints, and teeth grinding. Often this problem is considerd by medicine and denstristy a structural issue or misalignment.

However, clients practicing Clinical Somatics find many or all of these problems relieved, controlled, or eliminated. These pains, restrictions, and misalignments may be caused by chronic muscular firing from the sensory-motor system and resulting long-held contractions of the jaw, neck, and possibly shoulder muscles.

Headaches

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.
