Your body is controlled by the many major and minor muscle groups which make up the majority of your mass. Relieving the pain you may have in the deep tissues and in the joints is the focus of somatics. Somatics is the method by which massage and other techniques are used in order to deliver relief to the different parts of the body you may be experiencing problems with. It is important to keep in mind that the methods which are used in somatic massage in order to get results will most likely be administered by a somatic practitioner. These methods will involve you being dressed in only a pair of underwear or with loose clothing that will allow the practitioner to get to the parts of the body that they need to work on.
While it is most often that people will complain of muscle problems, it is surprising to note how many of these problems can be linked back to problems with the joints. This is why many of the methods in somatics are designed to provide relief to joint pain as well as deep tissue pain. This will not only help you to get rid of pain. It will help you to be able to enjoy more range of motion as well as a greater freedom and lightness which comes from more agility. In somatic massage, the manipulation of the soft tissues is also important to get rid of a lot of the stored up toxins which can continue to cause you stress and reduced locomotion.
