“Our work is to release tension and resistance in the body to bring the physical into deeper harmony with the spiritual.”    -Bruce Burger, Esoteric Anatomy, The Body as Consciousness

Practice Somatic Energy Medicine:

You are protected to practice under SB577, as of January 1, 2003, California law recognizes the professional legitimacy of alternative and complementary health care practitioners and healers allowing them, for the first time, to be able to legally provide and advertise their services..

Only individuals “manipulating soft tissue” and representing themselves as Massage Therapists, Massage Practitioners and Bodyworkers, are required to meet the 500 hour education requirements of the CMTC.

I believe that working with the body “as a field of energy/consciousness” as illustrated in our text book, Esoteric Anatomy: The Body As Consciousness, is outside of the laws definition of massage, “manipulating soft tissue” .

Somatic Energy Medicine, is Joaquin Fioresi’s expression of the work he has learned and practiced through a 7 year long and still ongoing mentorship with Bruce Burger. 
Dr. Stones, Polarity Therapy is the foundation of  Bruce Burgers book Esoteric Anatomy.
Somatic Energy Healing addresses the Soul – the animating intelligence in the body. We work with the body as a field of energy and understand the Soul as the nucleus of life’s energies. We work holistically to attune the body to the life-giving, healing resonance of the Soul.
Somatically we work with the “felt sensations” happening in real-time in the body as a particular process is being run. This helps the client to locate the area’s of trauma, tension and armoring in the body so they can focus on releasing and working through it.
Through energy balancing bodywork, somatic experiencing, energy exercises, dietary wisdom and esoteric psychology, a profound transformation takes place.
Every aspect of our program facilitates an entrainment with the healing intelligence of the Soul.

We will explore Etheric Plane Communication, a most effective way to create space for one to communicate with those past, present and future and find their peace of heart and mind. We will also explore Rescuing the Inner Child, here we set the table for our client to travel back as an empowered adult to a time in their lives where they felt most vulnerable and bring them back to safety. This work is very shamanic in ways and there is a lot of room for creativity, play, empowerment and lots of healing.

Our Somatic Energy Healing Program covers three two day energy balancing protocols and one Somatic/Shamanic specific class where we explore tools to help release emotional and physical tension, armoring and trauma. Our foundation is validated and steeped in yoga philosophy from the Indian Vedas, the oldest known sacred texts in the world. ‘Veda’ in Sanskrit means knowledge, wisdom, to know. Each module/immersion spurs deep emotional, mental and physical healing and spiritual clarity for the healer and the receiver.
