CLINICAL SOMATIC EDUCATION

 

Sore back? Stiff neck? Hip pain? Tension headaches? Trouble from an old injury? Problems standing tall, or sitting & walking comfortably?

Tired of being told your muscle aches, pain, & fatigue are ‘unexplained’ or can’t be helped?

Sick of being told ‘it’s your age’?

Or are you an athlete, sportsperson, or amateur runner, cyclist or walker looking to improve your performance via greater self-awareness, improved proprioception, & better control of your muscles?

Enabling YOU to address the causes of your bodily discomfort through movement patterns & internal awareness of your self as a ‘soma’, Clinical Somatic Education (CSE) helps you learn to ERADICATE YOUR PAIN & IMPROVE YOUR EASE OF MOVEMENT.

Do you feel like you’ve ‘tried everything’, but nothing provides long-term relief?

Take control, & learn how to improve what matters to you - whether that’s sitting, standing, & walking comfortably, or improving your running, cycling, or sports performance.

TRANSFORM YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOURSELF

While you learn Essential Somatic Movement in group classes & individual CSE sessions, the real beauty is that CLINICAL SOMATIC EDUCATION EMPOWERS YOU TO TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR OWN MUSCLE PAIN RELIEF & EASE OF MOVEMENT, as you learn movement patterns & principles to explore AT HOME, not just in class.

Aches, chronic pain & other symptoms put down to ‘ageing’ are very often those most effectively alleviated by clinical somatic movements & education.

Many athletes & others who enjoy or live for sporting activities, too, find that their performance improves as clinical somatics work enhances their ability to sense & control their own muscles, so move more efficiently & economically.

See this video, below, in which my teacher & mentor, Martha Peterson, explains one of the key differences between Clinical Somatics and other ways to combat pain, stiffness & tension - and why it addresses the causes of pain, not just the ‘symptoms’.


the bodily decrepitude presumed under the myth of aging is not inevitable. It is, by and large, both avoidable and reversible. I know this to be true, because I have seen it occur thousands of times…

BACH REMEDIES

heal yourself

Healing with the clean, pure, beautiful agents of nature is surely the one method of all which appeals to most of us
— EDWARD BACH (1936)

Bach Flower Remedies

Bach flower remedies help you heal by enabling a sense of ease & harmony in yourself - whether the main problem you’re seeking to address is physical, emotional or psychological, or if you’re just feeling ‘out of sorts’, & ‘not yourself’.

People often turn to Bach flower remedies to address a physical condition or symptom; therefore, many are surprised to learn that the remedies focus not on physical symptoms, but on the emotions, personality & circumstances of the person seeking help.

The system is simple & available to all, as Dr Bach intended. Initially, though - & at times of real need - it’s helpful to consult a practitioner who’s experienced in choosing remedies for herself & others, & who’s trained at the Bach Centre.

The remedies aim to bring you balance & harmony – to make you feel more at ease in & with yourself.

What’s all this about ‘peeling the onion’?

The image of ‘peeling the onion’ refers to the process of starting with what presents itself on the surface – for instance your most obvious emotion, your most niggling physical pain – and working with that.

It illustrates that taking care of yourself is often a learning process, during which different layers of you - whether primarily your feelings, in the case of Bach remedies, or your physical & emotional tensions, with Somatics - are often revealed.

Central to both Clinical Somatic Education & Bach flower remedies is the idea that at each stage of your healing & learning – with each ‘layer of the onion’ – you take time to learn about yourself; about how you can more fully know, heal, & care for yourself.
