Clinical Somatic Movement: Soma ScanWe had another great week of classes; first, we released the muscles of the back and abdominals (as all movement starts in the center of the body), then we were free to contract and expand the muscles on our sides, lengthening and releasing our sides. 

The beautiful Somas (pictured above), who are showing up to class for themselves, are learning to self-sense and self-monitor what is happening in their bodies. Let me clarify what exactly these wonderful students are doing; it's called Soma Scan.

The Soma Scan is a wonderful therapeutic way to reduce stress and overstimulation, that is caused by our hectic lifestyles, whether it be emotionally or physically triggered...or both. Soma scanning helps us to go from a Red Light Reflex to achieving a Green Light Reflex (I promise to clarify each one of the reflexes in a future blog posting). Somatics can help us be more present to ourselves and to others around us.

When we stretch or pandiculate (def. yaw…
Clinical Somatic Movement: Walking Tall the Easy WayDuring my journey into the world of Clinical Somatics, I realized firstly, that movement is life and the way that we move does impact our overall health. As North Americans, many of us have forgotten how to move properly. Our days are spent sitting in cars; at computers; on the couch watching endless hours of TV. Statistically, we walk about 70% less than our ancestors did.
It was noted by Martha Peterson, a Certified Hanna Somatic Educator, on her several visits to India, that women doing the most grueling work of carrying bricks or other heavy objects on their heads, showed no signs of rounded shoulders or hunched backs. Martha's insight as to why this type of posture was not prevalent in India was, these women, in carrying their load while balancing, showed the long extension of their belly and waist muscles. Their ribs were open and moving in an upward direction, and their hips swayed gently as they walked with small steps or …
Clinical Somatic Movement: Arch and Curl The clinical somatic movement here is called arch and curl. The purpose of this movement is to release and relax the muscles in the abdominals on the diagonal. Once achieved, we are well on our way to regaining control in the centre of the body. Notice we are not concerned with "END GAMING " touching our elbow to knee, yet the gentle movement of lengthening from the inside out. This is very different from a sit up; as we gain conscious control before we move, and stay with that sensing all the way through to the peaceful end.

 Somatics is a wonderful journey that changes every day. We never show up the same way in this life. Come be a soma with me and discover yourself from the inside out. Learning our way back home!

Zenith OmegaTMZenith OmegaTM is an alternative healing technique - energy work that uses sound, colour, and sacred geometry to re-establish the links between mind, body and spirit.  In fact this is an ancient healing tool, a way of managing energy, a key that unlocks the door to our inner selves and allows us to reclaim what is our natural heritage: intuition, self and psychic awareness, inspiration, our creative process, good health and healing, our very essence and being.
Zenith Omega facilitates the transformation of any unbalanced emotion or ailment and assists in our spiritual transformation.
Emotions, thought, issues and experiences are all energy and they can create blockages through the body, which suppress your intuition, imagination and creativity. Imagine putting a layer of paint over an entire light bulb. Let it dry then paint it again…and again…and again. Soon the light from within will barely filter through, regardless of how much electrical energy is used. This is simila…
ReikiThe word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
