Embodiment, Health, and Wellness: An Introduction to Somatic Movement
Presented by: Martha Eddy, RSMT/E, CMA, DEP, and Sara Vogeler, BMC, RSMT, LMT
Somatic movement enhances human function and body-mind integration through mindful and restorative movement. Somatic movement education and therapy supports homeostasis, co-regulation and neuroplasticity. The practices incorporate postural and movement observation and evaluation; experiential anatomy; and movement patterning that increases efficiency, while refining perceptual, kinesthetic, and proprioceptive sensitivity. This session will review distinct methods each with their own educational or therapeutic emphasis, principles, methods, and techniques.
This presentation was recorded at the 2020 Integrative Healthcare Symposium Annual Conference.
