The Series

HB_SomaSeriesb

For the greatest benefit, Soma Neuromuscular Integration® is best experienced as a series of sessions. This consists of 11-sessions that each address a specific part of the body, yet also work to balance the whole. Sessions are generally one week apart and approximately 1.5 to 2 hours in length. In addition to the actual bodywork, movement re-education, reading materials, journaling and other activities may be used. Furthermore, each session builds on the previous, so completing the 11-session series is important for receiving the most benefit. Often clients will notice changes from one appointment to the next, with their bodies often eager to receive the next session.

The Series

Session 1: Rib Cage

Focus: Releasing the tissue surrounding the rib cage and lengthen the lower back.
Results: A sense of lightness and well-being, a more upright posture and fuller deeper breathing.


Session 2: Legs & Feet

Focus: The body’s foundation: lower legs and feet.
Results: A sense of being firmly grounded and in touch with reality.


Session 3: Sides

Focus: The relationship between pelvis, rib cage and shoulder girdle.
Results: Expanded breathing, greater relaxation and more immediately available energy.


The Core Sessions

To bring about the most profound benefits of  work, we restructure, educate and enliven the center of your body: legs, pelvis, entire spine and muscles that support you from deep within.

Sessions 4, 5 & 6: Vertical Core

Focus: Adjust and lengthen the center line, or core, that runs vertically through the body.
Results: Better balance and freedom of movement. Walking takes a fraction of the energy typically expended.


Session 7: Head & Neck

Focus: Release the muscles of the neck, face and head.
Results: More softened and relaxed appearance in the face, with increased self-reliance and personal power.


The Integrative Sessions

These final sessions are the key to the lasting “effects” of Soma Neuromuscular Integration®. By focusing largely on integration and connectivity, we allow your body-mind to fully “own” this new way of moving and being in the world.

Sessions 8, 9: Integration

Focus: Integrate first the lower, then the upper body in a new and more efficient manner.
Results: Less stress and increased energy as the body’s structure becomes better aligned with gravity.


Session: Arms

Focus: Release and integrate the arms and shoulders
Results: A lighter experience of the arms, greater ease through the shoulders, an experience of more connection through the entire torso.


Sessions 10: Integration

Focus: Integrate the whole body in a new and more efficient manner.
Results: Less stress and increased energy as the body’s structure becomes better aligned with gravity.
