Come join the International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association for an interactive lecture demonstration of three different somatic movement methods.
Somatic Movement enhances human function and body-mind integration through mindful and restorative movement. Somatic Movement Education and Therapy supports homeostasis, co-regulation and neuro-plasticity. Our practices incorporate: postural and movement observation and evaluation; experiential anatomy; and movement patterning that increases efficiency, while refining perceptual, kinesthetic and proprioceptive sensitivity. Our profession encompasses distinct methods each with their own educational or therapeutic emphasis, principles, methods and techniques.
- The participant will experience a sample of somatic movement practices.
- The participant will be able to discuss the scientific foundation on how somatic movement can benefit patients in need of; pain relief, recovery from sports injuries, support for motor delays and neurodegenerative disorders.
- The participant will learn simple, practical techniques that they can implement right away with their patients.
