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 because she knows the easy way to stay free from the problem.


It’s because of involuntary tension.


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

He is organized and professional.”-Erika, teacher and world traveller


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.

I can help you sort out the problem you are having.

Remember, there is no muscle memory, it’s a myth. The nervous system remembers and gets very good at doing what it does a lot of. The achy stiffness, and tightness, that we associate with aging doesn’t have to do with age.  It’s involuntary contraction. That’s the myth of aging. I can show you how to feel supple again. 

You can reverse your specific patterns of chronic muscle tension.

Regain voluntary control of tensions that are usually 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.


Cumulative stress reflex contractions and injury contractions take over our bodies. They happen in clear, defined patterns. Learn to be free from the constrictive tightness that causes pain and keep us from being fully alive.  It is my mission to bring this simple method to the world. 

 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.

If your muscle tension is a problem, 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.

“When I had lost hope my right shoulder would ever heal years ago, Eric was the person who gave me hope back and helped me significantly heal my right shoulder. Without that, I would not be able to live my passion. I am forever grateful. This dance is for blessings to your new sacred healing space.” – Christina

“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
