Soma Unwinding Process is a powerful healing journey, consisting of eleven Soma Structural Integration sessions, that support you transform your physical and emotional challenges into nourishing and life enhancing ways of living.
HOW DOES THIS PROGRAM WORK?
Our intention is to integrate the healing of your body with the harmonizing of your emotions and your life-style. Once that deeper attunement is created, your life force can flow freely and naturally support you in your thriving.
Soma Unwinding Process is about increasing your capacity: physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. It is about developing a stronger balance within. Your bodymind will “work better.” You will move with greater fluidity and grace; you will be able to handle emotionally challenging situations with more ease; you will recover more quickly when injured; and, you will have greater access to your own creativity and spirituality. You will have an increased capacity for joy and aliveness. Grief, anger and pain will not seem as unbearable. You will be able to consider possibilities for yourself and your life that had seemed impossible.
Increasing capacity has nothing to do with becoming a perfect person. It is about starting where you are and moving to the next stage of your evolution. The degree to which this change will manifest has to do primarily with your own readiness. How willing are you to shed your old skin? Do you have the support you need? Have you already been laying the groundwork for a transformation? Are you ready to start building these things now?
WHAT IS THE PROGRESSION OF SESSIONS?
Session 1 - Frees the tissue surrounding the rib cage and lengthens the chest and lower back. Result: Feeling of lightness, connection and well being, more upright posture and fuller, deeper breathing.
Session 2 - Focuses on the body’s foundation, the lower legs and feet.
Result: A sense of being firmly grounded and in touch with reality.
Session 3 - Lengthens the sides of the body and frees the shoulders. Result: Breathing expansion and more immediately available energy.
Session 4,5,6 - Adjusts and lengthens the centerline that runs vertically through the body. Result: Walking takes a fraction of the energy typically expended, improving balance and freedom of movement.
Session 7 - Releases the muscles of the neck, face and head. Result: A more softened relaxed appearance in the face with increased self-reliance and personal power.
Sessions 8,9,10 - Integrates the whole body in a new and more efficient manner. Result: Energy and vitality increase as the body’s structure becomes more aligned and balanced in gravity.
Session 11 - Opens the tissue of the arms and balances the shoulder blades into the back. Result: The arms swinging freely with increased rotary function and expressivity.

As the body and mind let go of deep-seated tension and as layers of unprocessed emotions unwind, you can access profound connection, serenity and joy arising from the center of your being. You thrive in your being, your relationships and your life.
