Change why your muscles are sore.

 

Change why you feel stiff and achy.

These changes are done without sudden manipulation, stretching, or forcefully pressing sore muscles. Weeks later, the improvement is still there.

 

It’s because of the involuntary tension.

 

It’s the result of a lifetime of stress reaction, repetitive motion, and injury.

Learn to undo these stress and injury contractions that have become stuck in your body.

 

And, it’s easy.

The contraction that makes us stiff, is silent. It’s strong and determined! Posture is active. 24 hours a day. She’s turning down the active contraction of the front of the body, with sensory awareness during a pandiculation (an easy type of yawning-like movement). The tension that distorts posture is learned, and habituated. The brain learns little to nothing from a stretch. Stretching does not turn down the contraction signal in a durable way. The Pandiculations of Somatics allows us to change these ingrained tension patterns.


Some explanation of the process from a client:

Explaining, after second session

“I have good news!  I ran two miles this morning WITHOUT walking!  And I could breathe easily!  I literally have not felt that since my accident happened!  I could not be more excited!!!!!! THANK YOU :)” -L.  marketing professional, many months after an auto accident, written after the first session.

 

 



Teach your
 brain to reset your muscle tension problem.

  • Relieve pain, 
  • Stay flexible (without stretching),
  • Be upright with less effort, (improve posture)
  • Manage stress, 
  • Move more easily,
  • Better performance, strength and energy, 
  • Have a body that’s under your control,
  • Be supple.

 


“Eric really knows his subject! He’s a conscientious, caring practitioner. I’m stunned by the positive change in my body after only one session. Somatics has given me hope there will be an end to chronic pain that has plagued me for years!” -S. consultant in the world of fashion





I can help you sort it out.

 

You can reverse your specific patterns of chronic muscle tension.

How can you regain voluntary control of tensions that are unconscious and involuntary?

With an extraordinary re-patterning techniqe called pandiculation, a gentle yawning-like contraction of the muscle, followed by a slow, controlled lengthening to full rest. This powerful neuromuscular re-patterning technique has the following qualities;

1) Slow-motion yields faster change in muscle function,
2) Less effort brings more voluntary control,
3)
It’s Pain-free, which allows way more gain.

When applied to localized and full body tension patterns, pandiculation is truly liberating.

 

 


 A little of what a session looks like:

The private Clinical Somatics session includes assisted movements that allow you to make lasting changes in your muscle tension problem. As a reaction to cumulative stress and injury, involuntary tensions take over the body. This is how to regain control of the tension of your musculature.

Learn Lifelong Skills

If you can’t control your muscle tension, learn to Pandiculate.

As part of this process, you will learn low-effort, lazy, self-care pandiculation movements. They can be done anytime and anywhere, and are the key to having your muscles feel less tense and constricting, for life.

“I am feeling so well I just have to let you know! I have almost no aches or pains! 

When I first came to see you I was a mess, especially with the pain in my hip that I have had for over 10 years. I am thrilled to say that it has receded into the background. I am really glad I came to see you for more than one or two sessions, because the other areas you worked on seem to have been connected with the hip pain. 

A “freeness” has come over me that I haven’t felt for 2 decades! Instead of feeling my age (63) I have been able to go back to a level of ballet dancing that I enjoyed in my 30’s and 40’s. Much, much thanks!” – Cheryl, Retired Music Teacher, Ballet Dancer
