Stress Relief & Relaxation with Clinical Somatics
Join Clinical Somatic Educator Sarah Warren St. Pierre as she guides you through a Clinical Somatics movement class in the comfort of your home.
Did you know that chronic muscular tension is directly linked to psychological stress?
Human beings are naturally well equipped to recover from short-term, life-threatening stress. Unfortunately, long-term, psychological stress stays with us, and its effects tend to build up and get worse over time. Muscular tension resulting from stress accumulates as we age, affecting our posture and making our movements stiff. Muscular tension is linked directly to psychological stress and mental activity, and it is extremely difficult to relax the mind and reduce stress if there is chronic muscular tension in the body. Muscular tension also raises blood pressure and leads to shallow breathing, both of which increase our stress level.
Clinical Somatic Education uses extremely slow, focused movements to train the nervous system to release our chronic muscular contraction. The movements reduce stress, relieve soreness and pain, and improve posture and movement.
In order to get lasting relief, 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 a relaxing movement class. At the end of the class, you’ll feel a wonderful sense of release in both your muscles and your mind.
