Kim Ball, ESMT

Certified Essential Somatics® Movement Teacher

Canada, Flesherton, Ontario

Kim Ball is a third-year student in the Clinical Somatic Education Professional Training Program. She taught Therapeutic Yoga for 10 years with a special focus on reducing and eliminating chronic pain. She is a compassionate, open-hearted Somatics Movement Coach committed to helping humans move better, feel better and live better.

For years Kim searched for something that would reduce stress, relieve pain, and improve mobility and strength. On her own journey of healing she discovered that Clinical Somatics Education (in the tradition of Thomas Hanna) was the missing link for her.

Clinical Somatics is a movement based therapy that asks us to observe from within those areas of our body where we feel freedom of movement and those areas where we feel restricted due to chronic tension. Working from the center of the body – the core – we begin to release the large muscles through a sequence of safe and gentle movements. These movements are based on a series of patterns that are seen in the body. These patterns are strong reflexes that are “hard-wired” into the sensory-motor nervous system.

Through developing awareness of the brain to muscle connection, Clinical Somatic Education helps you to release tension, and also anger, frustration and other emotions that we may accumulate in our body just by living and moving through life! The goal is to help free you from the stress and pain that is preventing you from fully engaging in your life. Somatics teaches Kim every day to let go of what is not serving her well. It helps build confidence, renew a sense of self and reclaim personal empowerment by learning to move more freely, with less restriction.
