Curious about Essential Somatic Movement? In this video, Erin Girzone will shed some light on this powerful self-care modality.
To experience an Essential Somatic Movement, check out the Good Health is a Habit Youtube channel.
Do you deal with pain in your back, neck, shoulders, hips, hands or wrists?
Have you noticed a steady decline in your quality of movement; progressively tighter muscles and more weakness?
Have you lost trust in your body and therefore avoid certain movements or activities?
All of these physical issues seem like an inevitable plight of the aging process. This is, in fact, a MYTH! What has actually happened is that over the years you have accumulated habitual tension in your muscles that has worsened with time and life experiences. Now you are stuck inside a stiff body who's bone structure is being pulled on constantly by tighter and tighter muscles. This not only leads to painful movement, but it leads to weak muscles as well.
If you are ready to do something about this, I am ready to help you! Through Essential Somatic Movement I will help you re-educate yourself about your body and how it moves. With this personal insight, you will find the ability lies in YOU to eliminate pain, and restore freedom of movement. Doesn't that sound exciting?!
Essential Somatic Movement involves recreating reflex patterns that we get stuck in, in the front, back and sides of the body.
Have you ever experienced a loss of strength, decreased mobility, and/or pain? All of these physical symptoms can be caused by habitual tension known as sensory motor amnesia. This habitual tension is a result of life circumstances including chronic stress, emotional trauma, repetitive movements/postures, as well as injuries and surgeries.
Through gentle, slow movements we establish a new level of body awareness and re-train the communication between the brain and the muscles, restoring coordinated movement, mobility and relieving pain.
You will discover that age does NOT have to equate to poor quality of movement and a less active lifestyle.
Essential Somatic Movement is incredibly powerful self-care work that will help you manage how you move through your life.

Chronic Back Pain Relief
"I have spinal stenosis and had experienced back pain continuously for 30 years.
With Erin's guidance through the somatic movements, I am now able to detect that I have been keeping my lower back muscles tight all the time. With the new awareness I've gained from the somatic movements, I am now starting to control these muscles.
Even with the little bit of control I've established I no longer feel any pain when lying or sitting down. I only feel pain standing and walking and that is even starting to subside. Recently I have had several days with NO pain at all. I highly recommend these somatic movements for anyone with any type of muscle pain." ~Mike B.
"Erin has a wonderful ability to tap us into our bodies. I started seeing her for support with pain from a traumatic event. I've been doing yoga and various forms of stretching, a runner and very active for years. And I could not ease the recurring pain which was caused and rooted in my body due to trauma.
In a much shorter amount of time than I was anticipating, I gained an incredible amount of pain relief. But the greater gift has been the way that my relationship with my body continues to shift. Erin has a way of supporting this engagement intuitively. Her 1-1 instruction is an incredible opportunity to get to know our bodies and release what no longer serves us, listen to the messages our body is attempting to share.
If you're interested in deeply transformative and effective body work, look no further. Erin has skills, knowledge and intuitive ability to support pain free movement and a closer relationship with ourselves.
Thank you, Erin!" ~ Kelley H.
