Clinical Somatics for Scoliosis

Join Clinical Somatic Educator Sarah Warren St. Pierre as she guides you through a series of Clinical Somatics movement classes in the comfort of your home.

Did you know that most cases of idiopathic scoliosis are caused by chronically tight muscles?

Chronic, subconsciously held muscular contraction pulls the spine out of alignment, resulting in a C-curve or S-curve. This type of scoliosis tends to worsen over time. It can lead to pain resulting from sore muscles, compressed discs and nerves, and uneven stresses placed on the rest of the body.

This class series is focused on allowing the spine to straighten by releasing chronically held muscular contraction. Clinical Somatics exercises train the nervous system to release that contraction, allowing the spine to straighten and relieving related pain.

In order to improve the condition of idiopathic scoliosis, you need to train your nervous system to release your chronically tight muscles.

To retrain your nervous system to keep your muscles released, you must engage in an active learning process consisting of slow, conscious movements. Passive methods such as stretching, massage, and chiropractic don’t have any lasting effect because they do not change the messages that your brain is sending to your muscles to stay tight.

Clinical Somatic Education is gentle, therapeutic, and suitable for all ages and physical abilities.

Lie down on a carpet or exercise mat and enjoy this series of relaxing movement classes. The classes are MP3 audio recordings, which allow you to focus completely on the movements rather than trying to copy a video. You’ll receive three 1-hour classes, three proprioceptive exercises, and a 1-hour Daily Practice Class.

If you are new to Clinical Somatics, you may want to consider the Level One Course, which teaches the exercises one-by-one through video demonstrations, audio classes, and simple written explanations. This format is often more effective for beginners. Please feel free to email Sarah at [email protected] if you are unsure of which class or course to start with.

Scoliosis exercises

“WOW!!! I am soooo thrilled to have stumbled on this yesterday! I was only recently diagnosed with severe scoliosis and yesterday I turned 57! I never knew! I have a huge lumbar C curve that then rotates the thoracic causing a rib hump (extended ribs on one side.) Long story short-you don’t really notice it other than the hump that has appeared in the last 5 years.

I’ve been through all kinds of therapies, and yesterday I worked hard and was in a lot of pain. I purchased these scoliosis classes, did one for an hour and had the most pain relief and best night’s sleep I’ve had in weeks!! I woke with only slight stiffness….compared to ‘Ok, how bad is it this morning?’

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I will get the word out! The best birthday present!!!”
