What is Soma Neuromuscular Integration®?

Soma Neuromuscular Integration®.....


It's sure is mouth full to say. And with good reason. There really is a lot that goes into Soma!


Let's start off by saying that Soma® is a modality of Structural Integration. 


Structural Integration is a modality of hands on body work.


This specialized deep manual therapy uses not only fascial manipulation but also movement re-education to release adhesions held with in the fascia (connective tissue). A practitioner aims to collaborate with clients who are dealing with traumatic injuries, chronic pain, restricted movements due to overuse of the body, or poor posture. As a result of the above mentioned the body may develop imbalances, compensations, and immobility making it difficult to move freely within gravity without pain or limitations.

The soul of Soma® is an 11 session series. Again, working with the fascia – each Soma session works a different segment of the body. And, each session builds on top of the last session allowing us (you and me!) to work deeper – releasing fascial adhesions, making the body more available to unwind and liberate you from holding patterns that are no longer serving your being.

Soma helps to regain your structural integrity. Bringing balance, energy, and awareness with not only the Soma work itself, but also using a variety of tools to help bring structural change.

Why Choose Soma®?

The Soma® community is full of wonderful individuals who have done a tremendous job at bringing to light the differences between Structural Integration and Massage and why one modality may be more appropriate for you and your unique body over another modality.
