CSE Level I

Clinical Somatic Education Level I consists of 3
immersion courses (20 - 21 hours in length each):

Applied Somatics for Tilting Bodies
Applied Somatics for Stooping Bodies
Applied Somatics for Arching Bodies

The first three modules comprising Level I look at postural disorders of the spinalpelvic centre (trunk), the neuromuscular imbalance known as sensory motor amnesia, and the stress that affects the spinal-pelvic centre. These courses will lay the foundation for your CSE practice and may be taken in any order.

These modules of Clinical Applied Somatics Education techniques (hands-on) are effective in eliminating chronic pain of the back and neck, headaches/migraines, scoliosis, sciatica etc...

When the practitioner has completed these three modules they have a system of somatic tools that allow them to work with a broad spectrum of clients in their practice. These first three components look at the neuromuscular and postural changes as a result of the landau reflex, trauma reflex and startle reflex.

For an example of some of these techniques being taught in a class for clinic clients click the icon below

This exercise, called "Arch and Flatten", will help to:

  • rebalance and control the muscles of the torso, shoulder girdle and joint, and upper arm
  • improve posture, especially the length and stability of the spine reduce pain of the mid to low back, shoulder girdle and joint, and the head and neck

Somatic Movement Principals

  • Always move slowly, smoothly and gently with the lease possible effort.
  • be aware of how your muscles and joints feel as you do the movements.
  • Always stay within your comfort level and do not force any movement.
    Straining may produce more tension in your body, not less.
  • If a movement is not comfortable for you, imagine yourself going through the exercise. This can still create neuromuscular changes that can help to reduce pain.
