Think Somatics Introductory Course by Kristin Jackson

Think Somatics Introductory Course

Learn how to free your body of habituated tension and get back to enjoying life to the fullest!

Fix your pain with the power of your brain

Do you have pain and tension in your body? Are you being held back from doing your favorite things in life? Are you tired of spending money and time on treatments that don't last?

And you’ve probably tried “everything” to help address your pains, but don’t get long term results. 

That’s because typical modalities address parts of your body. Somatics addresses the brain, the organ that controls everything you do, including how your muscles move your body.

With this course, Kristin Jackson, a certified Clinical Somatic Educator, wants to take you on a different path. 

Kristin helps people reclaim better functionality of their bodies through neuromuscular reeducation. Wait! Don’t glaze over or think, “That sounds too science-y, too hard to understand, or too woo-woo for me!”  

That’s part of the problem with our culture today. We have been trained to be disconnected from sensing and having control of how our bodies function. We’ve been dumbed down and numbed out to sense ourselves.

But you are smart! And with what Kristin will teach you, you'll drastically improve your brain-body intelligence, so you can get back to doing what you love to do!

Praise for Kristin and Think Somatics

The recordings are very helpful for me to practice. You have a nice pace so I don't get lost mid-way. I really enjoy the classes!
Mary, Bellingham, WA
I really like the online classes. My neck feels as if it belongs to someone else, not my cranky stiff necked self! I felt so good, I put on music and danced around the house ... I sure felt limber and graceful!

Connie, Corvalis, OR

FAQs

Is the course streaming or downloadable?

This is a streaming course. No need to download and store the data on your devices.

Is Somatics suitable for me?

Somatics can help everyone! From those in pain to athletes wanting to enhance their game, and people of any gender, any age.

Somatics classes are not exercise classes. They are classes to enhance your brain's sensory-motor awareness of yourself via gentle, slow movement.

​Information shared in the lessons  is not meant to replace or negate medical advice. Talk with your health care providers about somatics. We encourage you to make your own health care decisions based upon your own research and in partnership with your health professionals.

Do I need any special equipment do to Somatics?

You don't need any special equipment for this course. The lessons are done lying on the floor, so you'll benefit from a blanket, yoga mat or rug. Depending on your neck mobility at this time, you might want a thin pillow or folded towel/blanket to put under the back of your head.

Can I do Somatics on my bed?

​Beds can be very soft and squishy, which makes it easier to over do the movements.
If you must do the class from a bed, please do the moves very gently, slowly and avoid making large, exaggerated motions.
Over time you should find you can get to the floor. I have clients well into their 80s who can, you can too!

I have so many other questions before I start something new...

Please schedule a private session for yourself. Kristin works with clients in person and online. A private session will give you the undivided attention you'd like to get you started on this amazing path to change and growth. You are so worth the investment. :-)
