Give Up that Lame Groin Stretch

Prying the knees apart to stretch the groin goes in direct violation of the stretch reflex.  If we push past the set point of a muscle, the brain will re-contrat the tissues to bring it back to the set point.


Since we know stretching is bad for us and science has moved on.  What other methods or means can we use to lengthen those recalcitrant inner leg…

Breathe easier by Not Breathing

That's what we love about somatics exercises.  Quite often those counter-intuitive approaches ring true after we've experienced something for our self.


As an avid exerciser who overcame fibromyalgia only to have a sports injury take me out of the game, I had to make a complete paradigm shift to learn how simple, easy movement using the brain took me through the looking glass and allowed for an…

Improve your Posture through Massage

     I, for one, have horrible posture and not-so-great body mechanics.  I found some information about how massage can improve posture and I'm hoping this will help me as well as my clients :)


Body positions are vital to your health.  Becoming aware of how you're sitting or standing is the first step in taking care of yourself.  And it's important to realize that postural problems, over the years, can lessen your quality of life and, if ignored, are likely to worsen as you…

Seeing Inside

Many times in the past I’ve marveled at a blind person’s ability to read Braille. I’ve passed my fingers over the raised characters many times while waiting for an elevator, etc., and wondered how a person can develop the sensitivity to distinguish those small dots to create meaning.


Then, this morning, I was working with a therapist who was in town for my Myofascial Mentoring Program. We…

Register Today

SMRT is a concept that begins with passive contraction of muscles, ligaments, connective tissues, and bones simultaneously to allow spontaneous release of these structures. SMRT stimulates lymphatic flow and creates a natural unwinding of connective tissues, which allows the joints of the body to realign effortlessly, re-establishing correct posture. While doing all of this, SMRT also quickly alleviates soreness in tissue, permitting you to…

Five Elements of Life - Earth Module

Connecting to Earth

Your earthen body forms the sacred container that gives you the ability to experience life in the physical realm.  The container of your body holds your connection to the other elements, Air, Water, Fire and Spirit.  Earth gives you the capacity to stand on your own as an individuated being, an individual, yet connected, spark of spirit expressing in this world.  The developmental task with the element of Earth involves honoring this connection of…
