Soma Neuromuscular Integration
Soma bodywork is a series of 10-12 sessions, evolved from the work of Dr. Ida P. Rolf, whose genius was seeing that there is an organized way to release the myofascial compensation patterns in the physical structure. These develop as a result of living out of alignment in gravity, stress and physical injury. Each session involves hands on work, movement re-education and emotional support of unprocessed held energy in the body. There is a momentum to the process, each session preparing the body for the next by creating space in the tissue and practicing appropriate movement to integrate. Each session is like a mini-seminar with receiving the work, studying the handouts of each session's goals and practices and feedback to bring back to each session, identifying changes and issues as they occur. It is an interactive, whole person process.

Somassage
Somassage was developed to offer a more structurally oriented body therapy treatment of myofascial release. It assists in maintaining Structural Integration sessions like Soma Neuromuscular Integration, or other systems like Rolfing, or for someone who would like a more comprehensive treatment other than traditional massage.

Learn More About Anita Smith

About me

I am a Native Floridian, born and raised in Miami. The love of movement has always been an integral part of my life, climbing trees, riding bikes, swimming, sport, dance and exploration in Nature. That love translated into graduating from The Florida State University with a degree in Physical Education, and then teaching in Miami-Dade and Leon County schools for several years. Helping young girls value the joy of movement was my passion.
Becoming a co-owner of one of the first Nautilus gyms in the country in 1973, gave me a deeper awareness of the importance of strengthening the structure through proper alignment and maximum efficiency of movement necessary for rehabilitation and health. I was next introduced to the gift of my hands by studying massage and treatment of athletic injury with Benny Vaughn, in 1979, one of the foremost therapists for athletes and others in the country.
This was soon followed by an introduction and experience of Soma Neuromuscular Integration, an evolution of Rolfing, developed by Bill Williams, PhD, an early student of Dr. Ida Rolf. This process changed my life physically and emotionally. It is a Body/Mind experience, incorporating release and alignment of the body and the processing of held, unprocessed emotions that the tissues so generously contain for us through life.
Further study followed with Dr. John Upledger and Craniosacral therapy, a method to communicate with the nervous system, allowing for deeper integration on all levels.

My Philosophy of Care

My intent is to support the whole person, the whole being, physically and emotionally, through the various modalities that have significantly impacted my own life and informed me of the potential for transformation and evolution of body, mind and spirit.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

Our first visit will offer time to connect and discuss what an individual is seeking in their life currently. We will asses the structural alignment to notice and feel what compensation patterns may exist, perform a full body Soma Session, and notice the differences before and after the work, then deciding together if this is the appropriate process for them.
Somassage, Craniosacral Therapy and the Passion Test are other processes that will be discussed as possible individual sessions.

My Inspiration

The journey to healing work has been an evolutionary experience through me. I have felt guided to each modality organically which expanded and informed my own life. I am deeply grateful to have been able to assist others in experiencing a greater awareness of themselves, physically, emotionally and mentally, through our work together.
