5 Myths to getting out of pain

Full Body Scan

In Somatics we call this a Soma Scan which is a detailed exploration of the entire body to see where it's at in its current state. The word "soma" refers to the ability to sense your body internally. While someone else can see your body, only YOU can sense how it feels. This internal sensing is also referred to as proprioception.

This scan can also be treated as a meditation on the art of being present because it requires you to bring great awareness to the entire body. This can be used to get a good snapshot of where your body is at before doing a movement practice or exercise. Then, after, you can do the scan again, and see how things have changed. This is a great way to improve your proprioceptive skills!  This helps you better able to self-monitor and thus self-correct when things are "off" in your body.
