Releasing pain through science and creativity: On Sunday nights we offer a pain management group
If you are experiencing back pain, joint pain, issues triggered by menopause, thyroid, stress, or a general discomfort in your body, this is an ideal class to rejuvenate and manage pain in a supportive friendly environment. If you are experiencing emotional pain that impacts your body, this class provides space to explore the relationship between emotion and physical health. All ages and abilities are welcome; if you are new to movement therapy and feel shy about moving, the environment is supportive, respectful and each persons movement expression and body storey is valued.
The class will focus on how gravity, breath, experiential physiology and free movement eases pain. We will also focus on nerve health and explore knowledge about the nervous system.
The class will start at 5 and run till 7 on the dates below. After the class we have a special room for tea and coffee, so everyone is welcome to stay to 8 or 9.
The cost is only £60 a month. We endeavour to keep prices low so the therapy is accessible to people on low incomes. Our dates are: January 5, 12, 19, 26 February 2, 9, 16, 23
We are proud to work within ISMETA’s ethical and professional practice regulations
Our scope of practice: The purpose of Somatic Movement Education & Therapy is to enhance human function and body-mind integration through movement awareness. Professional practice combines experiential anatomy, sound, breath, touch and imagery to bring awareness to the self-regulatory intelligence of the body. Somatic movement practitioners work sensitively and gently with the human body, acknowledging that movement affects dimensions of psyche and spirit as well. As a result, practice facilitates improved vitality, creativity, easeful movement functioning, and a restful embodied experience. The profession, as represented by ‘International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association (ISMETA)’ helps students and clients in some way to:
recognize habitual patterns of perceptual, postural and movement interaction with the environment
improve movement coordination that supports structural, functional and expressive integration
experience an embodied sense of vitality and create both meaning for and enjoyment of life
focus on the body both as an objective physical process and as a subjective process of lived consciousness
refine perceptual, kinesthetic, proprioceptive, and interoceptive sensitivity that supports homeostasis, co-regulation, and neuroplasticity
