SAMPLE EXERCISE

When The Body Arches
Somatic Exercises™
For Sore Backs and Swaybacks

Click on the icon for an example of some of these techniques being taught in a class for clinic clients - please read the information below before attempting the movements.

This exercise will help to:

  • rebalance and control the muscles of the torso, shoulder girdle and joint, and upper arm
  • improve posture, especially the length and stability of the spine reduce pain of the mid to low back, shoulder girdle and joint, and the head and neck

Somatic Movement Principals

  • Always move slowly, smoothly and gently with the lease possible effort.
  • be aware of how your muscles and joints feel as you do the movements.
  • Always stay within your comfort level and do not force any movement.
    Straining may produce more tension in your body, not less.
  • If a movement is not comfortable for you, imagine yourself going through the exercise. This can still create neuromuscular changes that can help to reduce pain.
