Somatic Movement Education and Therapy
500 West 17th, Suite 2, Holland, Michigan
Think back. Can you remember a time when you felt connected to and grounded by your body? When you felt alive in and good about your body? When you communicated confident, healthy boundaries with your body? Or experienced love through your body?
Maybe you don’t think much about your body. Or maybe you try not to think about your body because of chronic pain or illness, past hurt or shame.
But what if everything you wanted to experience in life — joy, love, meaning, wellness and wholeness — was closer than you thought?
Injury, Pain, Illness, Trauma, Stress, Fatigue, Depression, Anxiety, Cognitive Issues, Relationship Challenges…
The answers are in your body.
Your body was created to express emotion, communicate with others and experience life, and your movement patterns reflect your body’s efforts to protect you from trauma, anger, grief and fear. These patterns begin pre-birth and shoulder the many experiences of your life. In other words, how you move and carry yourself communicates volumes about you, your take on the world, how you think and how you feel.
Somatic movement is life-giving movement that releases, awakens and enlivens your FEELING body for optimal physical and emotional health. Through somatic movement education, you learn to move with awareness and intention, discovering healing, expressive and communicative movement for your unique soma, the Greek word for “living body.”
Each rejuvenating and empowering movement session is personalized and follows the therapeutic framework of Dynamic Embodiment™. This form of somatic movement education and therapy, developed by Dr. Martha Eddy, CMA, RSMT, Ed.D., integrates body awareness, life-giving movement, therapeutic touch and compassionate listening “to help people of all ages and abilities relieve stress, find enhanced expressiveness, and balance all aspects of the body and psyche.” No mundane “exercises” or “dredging up the past” required.
