Most chronic pain, joint degeneration, and recurring injuries are caused by the way we use our bodies – the way we sit, stand, and move throughout our lives. And our nervous system is responsible for telling us how to use our bodies. Our nervous system tells us which muscles to contract, when to release them, and how to hold our bodies when we’re just sitting or standing still.

As we grow up, our nervous system actually learns how to make us do these things. The more we repeat a certain posture or movement, the more deeply learned that pattern becomes. After a while, our patterns become so deeply learned that we don’t even have to think about them. This is what we simplistically call “muscle memory” for ease of reference.

Muscle memory is a wonderful thing, because it allows us to get through our daily lives efficiently. But unfortunately, sometimes we learn patterns that damage our bodies. The only way to change these deeply learned patterns is to re-educate the nervous system.

The movement techniques used in Clinical Somatics teach the nervous system how to release chronic muscle tension and stand and move in natural, efficient ways and retrain the nervous system, undoing years of tension and pain.

The extremely slow, gentle, conscious, tension-releasing technique is a highly effective way to help clients get out of pain.
