Do you ever think, I’m really too young to be feeling this old?
Even if you think “age is nothing but a number,” it’s hard to not feel old when you’re achy, stiff, and unable to be active and enjoy life as you once did.
What if we could feel 10 or 20 years younger by fixing the root cause of our muscle pain?
Join us at this essential FREE online workshop to find out more!
Our host for this event, Martha Peterson, is a former professional dancer who discovered, after years of pain and injury, that much of her ongoing suffering was the result of poor movement habits and unconscious habituation to stress.
For the last 30 years, Martha has been practicing and teaching the groundbreaking work of Hanna Somatic Education (aka Clinical Somatic Education) — founding Essential Somatics and writing the influential book Move Without Pain — to help people recognize how the reflex patterns they’ve created in their bodies contribute to pain, stiffness, and restricted movement.
In this empowering 60 minute workshop, Martha will share with you how to restore your freedom of movement through reconnecting your mind with your body, becoming aware of how your movement habits can adversely affect your entire body.
In this restorative hour, you’ll discover:
- How Sensory Motor Amnesia is the root cause of most muscle pain
- How the daily stresses of our lives become habituated in our bodies in 3 different stress reflex patterns
- A self-sensing exercise that releases tension in your neck and gets your brain back in control of your muscles
- The 3 stages of pandiculation that can create lasting muscle memory
- Why pandiculation is better for you than trying to stretch out tight muscles
You’ll learn how pandiculation can help reverse the effects of SMA by resetting your central nervous system and preparing you for movement. You’ll also discover three involuntary stress reflexes that lead to unconscious muscle contractions that you can get stuck in due to habituation.
Martha will share how pandicular movements can help you move slowly and consciously so your brain and nervous system can sense and integrate the biofeedback the movement provides, creating lasting muscle memory – and decreasing pain.
However old you are, the techniques shared in this workshop can help you regain the youthful joy of movement, keeping you healthier and happier throughout your life.
We’ll see you there!
