I have to tell you how incredible the somatic exercises are!!
I was in tears this morning I hurt so bad and I’m already moving around with MUCH less pain this afternoon after doing one session this morning!
I wish more people believed me and how helpful somatic exercises are!
It is a miracle cure 🙂
When I started my journey, I had a knee that was bad and needed surgery and my back was really bothering me. I’ve eliminated those things and found far greater flexibility. I have no stiffness or soreness after sporting events.
I’m doing things in sports I’ve never done before.
The amazing part about it, it keeps getting better.
I am moving with ease.
It’s changed my life!
My back spasms are gone!
This has changed my life.
No more stiffness and tightness.
