Listen to Erik's journey.
"I was involved in a severe car accident a few years ago where a drunk driver hit me from behind at about 80kmh. The whiplash was quite severe and life altering. I spent months in rehab and physio getting IMS and all sorts of other treatments like massage therapy etc. They seem to help temporarily but they just wouldn't release the tension in my neck and upper back and they started to cost too much money.
Teresa introduced me to somatics and gave me a few free lessons at first, to see if it would help and to practice her teaching. In the initial session, I followed her movement cues along and about an hour in my neck and face started feeling numb. I started crying as though the emotion from the accident was suppressing my neck from healing. I felt this release in my neck that I couldn't find in any other treatments. I started going to her classes once a week and learning more about somatics. It has been fascinating to learn and Teresa has a gift of teaching that is second to none. She's comfortable to be around and very encouraging.
I've incorporated somatics in my routine at home and it's helped me in various ways especially sleeping. Its important to be disciplined of course like anything in life but when I am it's of great benefit. I still have a long healing journey ahead of me but somatics will be a big part of that along the way."
