Very interesting, looking forward to hearing and seeing more.
Will this help with costochondritis
Thank you for your email. I am sorry for the delayed reply, we have just returned from our holiday and the internet has been intermittent whilst we were away.
Yes Somatics can help with costochrondritis because there is a strong connection between the cartilage/rib region and your muscles. There can often be chronically tight muscles holding rigidity through this region of your chest.
Until the muscles know how to fully release (from the commands within a region of your brain that communicates to the sensory and motor nerves within the muscles in this area), your muscles will continue to stay chronically tight. A software reset (your brain) needs to occur to inform the sensory and motor nerves within your muscles to alter the length and tension within this region.
In conjunction with this, hands on techniques with deep mindful somatic breathing helps to release other muscle groups which are instrumental in movement and rhythm within your torso.
Within somatics, I encourage people to stand back and look at their entire body with soft eyes. Rather than focusing purely on one region, consider how other areas are impacted because your brain patterns muscle tension as a full body of contraction. As a result of this, there will be other regions affected by the rigidity and discomfort your are feeling within your rib cage/breastbone.
I hope this has covered your question. If not, please let me know and I will elaborate further.
Thank you Heidi for your immense wisdom and for helping my community of mummas <3 Eternally grateful, you're such a wonderful person with such a heart for truly helping people. Loving the Tower Twist & finding calm with my deep somatic breathing thanks!
I am a yoga teacher with a very mild right scoliosis . I am doing yoga for Scoliosis ,Pilates and the Scorth Method with a PT. I love many of the Somatic movements . I do not feel comfortable with some .My PT discourages alll
pandiculation .What do you think of my yoga practice and what are your feelings on the use of pandiculation on spinal curves . Thank you
Thank you for your message. I am intrigued by your PT’s suggestion! I would love to know on a neuromyofascial and neuromuscular level why they discourage pandiculation over stretching. Very interesting! I have been working with clients with varying degrees of Scoliosis for years. Within my membership, I have a dedicated workshop discussion the supporting of spinal curves with pandiculation and which movements are best for scoliosis. As with many structural issues, people should always work with what they have. Not all somatic movements will suit everyone. That is why as individuals, it is best to work with what feels comfortable and in your case, what will support your curvature whilst re-educating your brain to muscle connection with pandiculation.
Have you been watching my FREE video series? If not, sign up with this link and you will receive the emails during the week:
As the episodes within my free video series continue, your PT may be interested to learn why pandiculation (alpha gamma coactivation) is much more effective for your muscles than stretching. Plus it improves muscle memory and power output by releasing from the belly of your muscles.
From professional experience with clients over the years, the Schroth method is great for Scoliosis and work beautifully with pandiculation.
