Soma Structural Integration is a powerful bodywork method offering healing journey, consisting of a progression of eleven sessions, that support you transform your physical and emotional challenges into nourishing and life enhancing ways of living.
WHAT IS OUR GOAL?
Our intention is to heal your body and harmonize your emotions and your life. By attuning to the wisdom of your body, your life force will begin flowing freely again.
Soma Structural Integration is about increasing your capacity: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. 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.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I COMPLETE THE 11-SESSIONS?
During the process your body will regain new alignment, balance and vitality. Even after we will complete the series the body will continue integrating the changes and discovering new freedom and possibilities of movement and expression. The same correlates to our emotional body and psychic body: you will discover new wholeness in yourself from which your life can truly thrive and flourish.
As we attend to our life and to all its demands occasionally we are thrown off center either physically or emotionally, and the difference you will notice after undergoing through the session it takes you much less time to find your way back to your center. Your inner compass of roundedness, resilience and harmony will be your powerful companion in your life.
As a regular maintenance program we do recommend a monthly Somassage session or when needed to offer some extra support and nourishments to yourself.
The greatest gift you will receive is your own inner connection to your body and its wisdom. With that true health and thriving are possible! Enjoy this wonderful journey of healing and blossoming!
