SOMA Institute

The 10-11 Session Series
SOMA consists of a systematic series of sessions, each focusing on a particular area of the body, yet they all address the comprehensive relationship of every part to the whole. The sessions are designed for a cumulative effect, each building on the previous session. Clients often report that their bodies are eager to receive, or even crave, the focus of the next session.

The Introductory Sessions
The first three sessions facilitate an opening, creating space for the "core" sessions that follow.

Session 1: Rib Cage
Focus: Releasing the tissue surrounding the rib cage and lengthen the lower back.
Results: A sense of lightness and well-being, a more upright posture and fuller deeper breathing.

Session 2: Legs & Feet
Focus: The body's foundation: lower legs and feet.
Results: A sense of being firmly grounded and in touch with reality.

Session 3: Sides
Focus: The relationship between pelvis, ribcage and shoulder girdle.
Results: Expanded breathing, greater relaxation and more immediately available energy.

Somassage is a slow, deep, full-body massage. It's effects are simultaneously energizing and relaxing. Deep-tissue Somassage sessions can be experienced on their own, or as "maintenance" after you have completed the session series.
