Arch & Flatten

Got lower back pain? This video is for you. Release and relax your lower back muscles quickly and easily. This is maybe the most fundamental Somatic movement. If you are new to somatics start here!

Basic Back Lift

Another great movement for back pain. Release all your back muscles. This movement allows you to begin to regain control of the muscles of the back of the body, from head to foot.

Arch & Curl

Releasing the belly and chest muscles. This movement also helps to restore coordination between the flexors in front and the extensors in the back.

Startle Reflex

Releasing the front of the body. Great for improving rounded shoulders, slumped posture, and shallow breathing. This movement also helps to calm feelings of anxiety or fear.

Lateral and Diagonal Arch & Curl

This movement releases tension, and improves co-ordination of the muscles of the front and back of the trunk, and also helps to improve left right co-ordination.

Washrag

The Washrag is a great movement to help you relearn how to twist and rotate freely. The ability to twist freely is critical for pain free walking and running. A great movement to place at the end of your movement practice or to use as a warm up to any activity.

"After three sessions I feel more balanced, upright and less tense. I now know how to get instant relief by learning some basics movements. I’m also now engaging all the muscles in my body rather than putting excess strain on just a few. These movements can easily be incorporated into your daily routine. Colm was patient and informative, and his expertise is self evident. Highly recommended."
