CONDITIONS SOMATICS CAN HELP: low back pain, bulging discs, sacro-iliac joint subluxation, sciatica, frozen shoulder, knee pain, limping, constipation, shallow breathing, headaches, scoliosis, TMJ dysfunction, carpal tunnel syndrome, bunions, poor posture, limited flexibility, stiffness, all the “itis” family, and many other conditions that may be the result of chronic muscular contractions.
2 METHODS: SIMPLE FLOOR EXERCISES AND HANDS-ON TECHNIQUES
HOW: Through neuromuscular re-patterning. Somatics tells your brain to stop sending the repetitive unconscious messages to your muscles and they relax.
CAUSES: Unconscious tension patterns can start from physical or emotional traumas or habituated movements associated with injury, stress or aging.

“I’ve experienced chronic lower back pain for about 3 years, which no other therapy seemed to completely release. With 3 sessions with Robyn, and the exercises she gave me to practice at home, my pain is gone and I’ve been consistently pain free! “ -D.H.
“The somatic session gave me hope about my chronically tight shoulder and neck area. It greatly released in one session and I now have tools I can use to continue my progress.” -M.R.
