Come join the MOVEment and feel the difference!!!





Somatics is a gentle movement-based practice, that targets the root cause of most chronic pain: being our brains and the way we adapt to life, stress and trauma, through unconscious habituated movement patterns. Over time, muscles learn how to stay contracted and slowly our brains ability to sense, control and relax our muscles diminishes. This leads to what is called "Sensory Motor Amnesia." Meaning a loss of voluntary control of our muscles.

Somatic movement offers a unique appoach to re-wiring the brain to muscle connection, and putting your brain back in control of movement. Through this safe and gentle practice, you will learn to observe areas of the body where movement is restricted and areas of the body where there is freedom of movement. Working from center to periphery, using a series of movements called "Pandiculations" you will begin to release large groups of muscles back to their orignal length and function. By working at the level of the "Sensory Motor Nervous System" you will be able to create more immediate and lasting changes in increased muscle length and function. Somatics is not about working harder. It's about slowing down and giving the brain the time to sense what is happening internally. Therefore, increasing our ability to move more intelligently, more efficiently and with greater ease and joy. 

The benefits of this practice are many and include: tools to safely and effectively reverse the causes of chronic pain, renewed muscle control, and greater strenth and flexibility. Improved walking, posture, and breathing. As well as reducing stress, anxiety and trauma.

I did a four week somatics course with Angelica, and I can say with all honesty that it continues to help me on many levels. She is an inspired and confident teacher who cares deeply about her students. I was able to feel comfortable in slowing down while I developed more knowledge and balance in how I relate with my body and movement. There was a feeling of safety, and plenty of joy and laughter along the way as well. This is proving to be beneficial in caring for my long-term health!
