Somatic Movement Therapy utilizes the inherent function and expression of the moving body to create change. SMT works with patterns of connectivity -- relationships within the bodySELF (your spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental “bodies” integrated as a whole Self), relationships between self and other, and relationship of self to the world.
Somatic: a holistic approach to working with the body and body experience from the inside out.
Because each person’s experience is unique, SMT works with your experience and perspective, tapping into the wisdom of your bodySELF to create the change you want.
Movement: a functional and expressive reality integral to the experience of life.
The way you move affects the way you feel (physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually), and your inner state of being is reflected in the way you move. You can create change in all aspects of your life through gaining awareness of and changing your movement patterns.
Therapy: a collaborative relationship guided by curiosity and compassion, and the desire to learn and grow.
SMT provides tools for increasing awareness of current movement patterns and what needs they serve; options for new possibilities; and dynamic responsiveness to changing needs.
As Somatic Movement Therapist, Anne serves as witness, guide, teacher and facilitator on your personal journey toward ultimate freedom of choice in how you use your body to serve your functional and expressive needs.
