What's Somatics:
Grounded in the belief that the body in its wholeness is the foundation for healing, somatic practices combine body awareness techniques with findings
in neurobiology and neurophysiology. These practices support & enhance the body's innate self-regulatory and resilience-building capacities. Used with focused intention, these practices can lead to symptom reduction and deeper insight about who we are, the world as a whole, and how we wish to inhabit
it. Come as you are, leave as you wish to be. . . somatics for social
