Somatic Education & Dance Movement Therapy
Dance Movement Therapy is the therapeutic use of expressive movement to further the physical, emotional, cognitive,and social functioning of a person. Dance movement therapists combine the elements of dance, movement systems, creative processes, and psychological and scientific theories, to address the specific needs of groups and individuals. Working within the somatic field means the therapist educates a person to sense their internal physical perception and experience, which can be the start of change within the nervous system. Christie uses Hanna Somatic routines and various movement experientials to assist a person to overcome emotional difficulties such as anxiety, and to assist with pain management.
You do not have to be struggling through life to engage in Somatics and DMT. It is an excellent way to develop and grow personally. Through movement we often have moments of awareness and clarity - the aha moment.
