See what people are saying

 

 "I was consigned to a life of aches, limited movement and pain killers.

After only 3 sessions I am filled with HOPE and OPTIMISM"

Lesley

 

"I very HIGHLY RECOMMEND anything offered at The Centered Room, but above all the 1:1 SOMATICS programs are not to be missed!" 

Kate

 

Do you want a life of ease?

I'd love to help you to be more comfortable, have less muscle pain and move with more freedom and ease.

 

I can teach you how to harness the power of your nervous system to release tense and tight muscles, as well as the discomfort and stiffness often associated with aging by applying Somatic principles to all your movements.

 

Once you've learned these PRINCIPLES they can be applied by you at any time for FREE!

Somatics gives you the tools for self-care which means that your investment in learning these techniques is priceless!

 

Often 3-6 personalised sessions is all it takes to learn these tools for  life.

Initial Assessment

We work together

I'm here to help you improve your movement and overall well-being. 

Your Initial Assessment is a 60-75 minute appointment where we discuss your movement challenges and I offer you re-patterning and recovery strategies. You will be fully clothed at all times lying on a softly padded treatment table.

 

By exploring gentle movements, you will begin to develop a better sense of how your body likes to move, as well as noticing when you begin to use too much effort. Together we can use these sensations to help you to learn more comfortable movement patterns.

 

When you work with me you become part of my Somatic Tribe! I will be available to guide you through the next stage of your journey towards improvement, whether that be to choose a 3-6 session package, or to transition to a group class.

 

My clinic is situated about 6 minutes inland from Central Rangiora.

The power of gentleness

Simple but incredibly potent is how I describe Clinical Somatics. It's a very gentle and deeply soothing practice for the nervous system - often people will fall asleep during the practice as they let go of very deep seated tensions.

Learn Pandiculation

Instead of learning movements we use movements to help us sense how we move. One of the main techniques we use to do this is called pandiculation.

Retrain your nervous system 

This approach retrains the nervous system to move and sense your body more effectively. The results are increased flexibility, increased efficiency and ease of movement, as well as reduced and often eliminated chronic pain related to muscle tension and joint discomfort.

"Somatics is very hard to explain,

and even more difficult to express how SIMPLE it is and yet produces PROFOUND effects"
