What is Somatic Touch?

Are you wanting a healthier relationship with your body?   Less Pain?  More freedom?   SomaticTouch is a dynamic hands-on body approach which rebalances and resets your whole body to functional ease. 

Freeing You From Stress

Somatic Touch bodywork resets and restores wholeness, flexibility, flow and ease.  You reconnect attention to your body in the here and now. 
Everything in your body is connected.  Your body is an amazing flow of interwoven parts;  shoulders, neck, brain, nervous system, heart,  knees, low back, hips, feet, muscles, ligaments, internal organs, the breath – all interconnected.   

How You Benefit from sessions:

There is a deepening ability to be relaxed and grounded, still;  – content and open. Your whole body returns to aliveness.  

  • You release patterns of muscular holding in neck, shoulders and back.
  • Acute and chronic issues often dissolve on their own while you relax.
  • Through the space of a series of  2 minute pauses during the session you shift into your natural wholeness and wellbeing.
  • You feel better fast physically and mentally.
  • You easily reset yourself for deep relaxation and positive health. 
  • More than ever before, you enjoy being in the present,  -body feeling alive and freer.
  • Regular sessions allow you to realize your innate ability to notice and release habitual contraction and trauma.
 Open M-F,  9am-5:30pm (last session ends at 6:30pm).            Phone  1.510.525.1250
The working principle behind Somatic Touch therapy is that the mindbody, spirit, and emotions are all interconnected and interdependent.  The stress of past traumas both structural and emotional affect the brain and neuro-muscular system and can disrupt balance in the body often resulting in habitual tension, postural imbalance and psycho-physical pain.  

Through developing sensory awareness of the mindbody connection and using specific interventions, Somatic Touch Therapy helps you to release the stress, frustration and suffering that are held in your body from these past negative experiences. The goal is to help release you from the habitual tightening and pain that is preventing you from fully engaging in your life.

Often A Natural Drug Free Release From Pain

Michael’s Somatic Touch therapy is the mindful application of gentle human touch to release back, neck and shoulder strain and pain and to address a wideranging acute and chronic issues.  

Somatic Touch therapy, as a holistic non-invasive bodytherapy, is also used to support people in times of stress and trauma.

Often it is effective in helping  people coping with life threatening illness such as cancer.   It is a successful complimentry approach to other non-bodywork therapies – psychotherapy/counseling, restorative care and meditation.

Somatic Touch therapy is easy on both client and therapist.   Anyone from babies to pregnant mothers to elders and infirm can safely receive a Somatic Touch session and benefit without harm and without pain.

I appreciate your business and will do everything to ensure you have a 5-star experience with me.  Your satisfaction is my top priority. 

Somatic Touch sessions free constricted bio-energy allowing better alignment and balance.  Gentle clear “moves” over tendon, ligament and muscle create an energetic vibration of fascia throughout the whole body.  The brain, nervous system and innate somatic intelligence resets the body to energetic and structural balance and wellbeing.  

As the body returns to balance, symptoms often diminish or disappear. Your inner somatic intelligence self-regulates the body-mind.   Whole new openings of possibilities come with improved relaxation, resiliency and ease mentally and physiologically. The sessions assist “being in the flow”, flexibility and increasing your range of movement.
