ABOUT US

ISMETA is a collaborative of individuals and organizations dedicated to evolving the field of Somatic Movement Education and Therapy. We ensure that training programs uphold high standards of education and practice, and maintain a professional registry of qualified practitioners. We are committed to building the professional community of Somatic Movement Educators and Therapists worldwide and advocating for the profession in legal and governmental arenas. We work to educate the general public about our work and help our colleagues in Integrative Medicine, Human Services, Education and the Arts understand the benefits of Somatic Movement Education and Therapy.

SOMATIC MOVEMENT IS...

Somatic Movement enhances human function and body-mind integration through mindful movement. Our profession encompasses distinct disciplines each with their own educational or therapeutic emphasis, principles, methods and techniques.

Our practices incorporate: postural and movement evaluation; experiential anatomy; and movement patterning that increases efficiency, while refining perceptual, kinesthetic and proprioceptive sensitivity. Somatic Movement Education and Therapy supports homeostasis, co-regulation and neuro-plasticity in our students and clients.

“Somatics” is the study of the self from the perspective of one’s lived experience, encompassing the dimensions of body, psyche, and spirit.
