How to get your body into a healing state.
Calm anxiety, ease chronic pain and reduce inflammation with pandiculation and other intuitive movements.
Feeling stuck, stiff, tense, achy, fatigued or in pain?
These signs of strain in your fascia, are interoceptive signs of distress. Alerting you that your nervous system is not able to restore itself and is stuck in a trauma loop of fight/flight/freeze or fold. Through no fault of your own! It happens on autopilot. Beneath your conscious awareness.
Your body continues in this unconscious loop unable to re-energise until you interrupt this pattern. You can't change a trauma pattern in your nervous system through your thoughts. The only way is through body sensation.
Fascia is the largest body-sensing organ of your nervous system. Abundant with interoceptors signal sensations from within. That could be stiffness, a healing touch, softness, strain, elasticity, inner ease, sense of disconnection, connection, and integrity. A sense of wholeness.
Fascia also interconnects and shapes every biological system in your body. Providing the environment for every living cell.
Your fabric of embodiment, fascia lies at the heart of healing trauma through the body.
Interoceptors are either linked to bodily functions like the urge to pee, hunger, thirst, itch, body temperature, nausea.
Or emotional sensations like butterflies in your tummy, pounding heart, dry mouth, an adrenaline rush, or calm nurturing, comforting sensations.
Learn how to restore the inner rhythm of your nervous system through this intuitive sense.
Your body has a healing frequency.
A nurturing sensation. The kind that emerges when we are in awe and wonder of the beauty of nature. Especially when we pause in the moment to connect and listen to the sound of the sea, resonate with the sound of a bird, smell the scent of lavender or stand mesmerized by the shape and magnificence of a tree. It’s that spontaneous sense of awe that interrupts the nervous system being in a state of survival.
You can get to the same healing frequency through fascia tuning intuitive movements. Feel-good movement blueprints to nurture,nourish and heal fascia from the inside out. Just 5 minutes of a body bounce can ease stiffness and strain, whilst toning the vagus nerve. Or The Calm Response™ a practice that triggers an inner release of the body held in a trauma reflex pattern. Although the somatic practices feel good and are simple, they are not a quick fix.
Just like an old overgrown pathway in a dense forest, it takes regular self-practice to clear a pathway that has not been used for a while.
Pandiculation is an intuitive blueprint that you are born with that can help you reconnect with your body's inner healing wisdom. Revitalizing fascia, your organ of wellbeing. When you heal fascia, you heal trauma.
When did you last pandiculate?
Pandiculation is that spontaneous urge to "stretch and yawn" on waking up. Dogs, cats, and mammals have the same revitalising blueprint.
When you lose this urge, it's a sign that your body is stuck in a trauma response. You can access this blueprint in a single SomaSensing session.

Learning about the "calm response" is like a new discovery of a retreat, available to me any moment.
SomaSensing™ is no longer the RIGHT thing to do but is now the KINDEST thing I do for my body, physically, mentally and emotionally, restoring the equilibrium of body and spirit
After Antoinette’s movement session, I feel a deep softening happening inside me. A vulnerability, lightness, gentleness and opening of my heart.
Yasmin’s work has shown me how to find a little peace and freedom in the chaos of my busy life and overactive mind. By using her simple movement techniques, I now understand better how to ‘let go’ and connect with a place of calm and integrity within my being.

Creator of SomaSensing™ Intuitive Somatic Therapy
SomaSensing is a reflection of my own inner journey. From fitness to wholeness. I've always loved moving. From childhood. I can't imagine life without movement. Fitness was a huge part of my life at one time until I discovered somatic movement. I have a background in Pilates and Yoga but my exploration of fascia a felt sense, led to intuitive motion. Moving any other way just feels wrong! You can work with me online or in-person in the UK from December 2021.
