Eunique Movement Therapy & Self-Release

Retraining of the nervous system and brain can be achieved with the help of Somatic Movement Therapy, which is usually part of the suggested homework. Our Soma can be described as the way we perceive ourselves from the inside out. The body / nervous system may store past activities that the mind forgets and pain can be created by habitual, unintentional movement patterns. Movement re-education gets to the root cause of chronic muscular pain: the brain and way in which it senses and organizes the muscles and movement. By learning to regain both awareness, sensation, and motor control of muscles – an educational process that can only be achieved through movement – the brain can remember how to relax and move muscles properly. This process of muscle / nerve training creates improved muscle function and enhanced awareness.

Movement is fundamental to human life. In fact movement is life. Contemporary physics tells us that the universe and everything in it is in constant motion. We can move our body and at the most basic level our body is movement. According to the somatic educator Thomas Hanna, "The living body is a moving body – indeed, it is a constantly moving body." The poet and philosopher Alan Watts eloquently states a similar view, "A living body is not a fixed thing but a flowing event, like a flame or a whirlpool." Centuries earlier, the great Western philosopher Socrates understood what modern physics has proven, "The universe is motion and nothing else."

Movement therapy can also be used as a meditation practice to quiet the mind, foster self-knowledge, and increase awareness. In addition, movement therapy is beneficial in alleviating emotional distress that is expressed through the body. These conditions include eating disorders, excessive clinging, and anxiety attacks. Since movements are related to thoughts and feelings, movement therapy can also bring about changes in attitude and emotions. People report an increase in self-esteem and self-image.

Eunice has designed a group movement class that includes Chiball QiGong, Breath Walking, Movement Therapy, and Relaxation Techniques that can be tailored to all levels of fitness and mobility. If you are interested in organizing a group, please email euniquemassage@gmail.com.
