SOMA Healing unites Western medical understandings of the body, modern somatic practices and ancient wisdom of the Soma healing rituals found in the East.
SOMA Healing recognises the body as the main agent in maintaining health and regenerating from illness. Our SOMA is constantly communicating its needs, what is beneficial and what is harmful to our organism.
In many cases pain, dis-ease and unfortunate life events are a result of consciously or unconsciously ignoring signals that our SOMA has been sending us for a long time.
The reasons for not listening to our body are often related to how we grew up in our family and society, how well our needs were met and if our boundaries were respected by our environment.
In a SOMA Healing session we create an intentional space to be able to connect through our body and our mind to our soma, receive its signals, explore their individual meaning and follow the body's natural healing impulses.

The SOMA Healing Art Training (short SOMA "HeArT") conveys the essence of healing during 8 modules. The course covers the 7 medicines that our bodies are blessed with when used consciously and skilfully.

The more the body has to compensate for physical &/or emotional trauma the more it'll need external help to get back into balance.
Osteopathy is a sophisticated form of Manual Therapy that stimulates the body‘s own healing mechanism by facilitating more freedom of movement, blood flow, lymphatic drainage, myofascial unwinding and balancing of the nervous system.
"Somatic" Osteopathy is how I call my personal approach to this healing art, providing a safe space to express and explore emotions that can be released when working on the body.

"Tierrapia" is a a new word creation combining two Spanish terms "tierra" (earth) and "terapia" (therapy).
It is based on a well-researched healing modality from Japan called "Shinrin-Yoku" which translates as 'forest bathing'. Studies demonstrate significant reductions in stress, anxiety, depression and sleeplessness even after short dips into the forest. SOMA Tierrapia sessions are about 1 hour walks into nature where mindfulness exercises facilitate the conscious connection of our soma with the earth.
This offer is currently available only for guests at
Soma healing rituals date back to more than 4.000 years ago as described in the RigVedas. The Soma Ceremony is probably the oldest healing ritual documented which greatly influenced the mystical traditions of Asia and alchemical concepts of the Western world.
In a SOMA ceremony we recreate the magic of ritual by gathering in a circle, sharing our truths, honouring our ancestors and celebrating life with dance, song, music and medicinal plants, connecting deeply with ourselves, each other, our earth and the cosmos.
Please see EVENTS section for previous and future ceremonies.
