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.

Bursitis

Bursitis is inflammation of the bursa, the fluid filled sacks that cushion points of contact between tendons, ligaments, and bones. Especially prevalent in the shoulder and knee joints, bursitis can cause pain upon movement, heat, swelling, and limited mobility. The term is often used as a general description for shoulder pain where the cause is unclear and is generally thought to occur from misuse.

Back Pain

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.

Disc Problems : Herniated, Bulging, Protruding, Swollen

Very often when a doctor or other health professional looks at an MRI or X-ray of a spine, they see a bulging, herniated or damaged disc and equate that with the cause of the pain. While we are in no way disregarding the idea that disc damage can cause pain and disfunction, the fact is that many people live perfectly healthy and pain free lives with damaged discs.
