This somatic education immersion of 21 hours focus is on improving function in order to improve structure. In this immersion in Clinical Somatic Education you will learn how to teach to clients more neuromuscular control of the head, neck, jaw, shoulders and upper and lower extremities. This program is concerned with pathologies considered outside of the spinal/pelvic centrum. Besides improved movement efficiency; some pathologies that will benefit from this somatic training are: TMJ dysfunction, rotator cuff dysfunction, RSI, CTS, elbow & wrist/hand pathologies, lower extremities dysfunction and pain syndromes.
Practitioners will also learn hands-on techniques of clinical somatic education which accelerate the release of tension in the neuromuscular system to restore functional movement. These hands-on techniques also enhance the clients’ knowledge of their somatic system so they can better manage pain, dysfunction and imbalance of the Extremities and TMJ.
Healthcare professionals will learn to teach therapeutic somatic exercises individually and in groups to manage pain, dysfunction and imbalances of the shoulders, arms, hands, hips, knees, feet and the TMJ. As we move outwards from the somatic centre the goal is to look for areas in our client’s minds and bodies where there is dysfunction and no neurophysiologic understanding and control and then work to help bring awareness and control back to those regions.
To help our clients reduce pain and stress and improve movement efficiency, we will explore the application of somatic technique, exercises and theory to expand our somatic tool box. In this immersion we will help bring our clients back to their whole body and a balance of movements through all joints.
