Clinical Somatic Education is...
...A system of neuromuscular retraining which goes directly to the source of many musculoskeletal problems by reorganizing the way your nervous system controls muscles, sensation, and movement.
Accidents, injuries, trauma, stress, or repetitive motion & chronic task situations can lead to habituated muscular dysfunction —including the physiological inability to voluntarily control or relax muscles. These sorts of functional problems often seem on the surface to be structural in nature, a defect, damage, or wear. They might even seem "incurable"! Examples of this include carpal tunnel syndrome, TMJ, scoliosis, back & disc problems, sciatica, shoulder problems, tension headaches, occupational stress, injuries, foot problems, arthritis, and many others.
Through systematic, precise movement experiences, the sensory-motor tracts of the brain and muscles are freed from these involuntary contractions and taught to regain voluntary, effective control. Without drugs or surgery, Clinical Somatic hands-on techniques assist your own nervous system to restore homeostasis and achieve healthy, proper functioning —often leaving you better off than before your presenting problem began.
