Standing Somatic Movements for Quick Back Pain Relief

5 minutes of "standing somatics" you can do anytime, anywhere...

Last week I wrote about a challenging client who couldn't lie on the table to do her Somatic Movements. I described some creative and fun movements that I coached her through that were truly AHA! movements for her. She's forgotten that she could move her body as a whole and not just as separate parts.

Here's a short video I made of the movements she and I did together. These are movements that you can do once an hour, standing next to your desk, if you're an office worker. You can do them interspersed throughout the day, just to "wake up" your body.  Try them out and let me know how they go. "Sharon," my client for whom I created these movements, tells me that they're working wonders for her! Remember that as with any Somatic Movements, go slowly, pay attention to the movement pattern itself, and then, if it feels comfortable and natural for your body, feel free to speed it up.
