Have a question? Frequently Asked Questions General What does Feel SOMA™ stand for? SOMA stands for Self Osteo Myofascial Applications. The Feel SOMA practice is a self-care, tissue management system that allows you to move, feel and live better. What is the difference between Feel SOMA™ Immersions and learning Fascial Mobilisers and Osteofascial Release through other professionals? There are people and/or organisations teaching Fascial Mobilisers and Osteofascial Release and unless they have completed the Feel SOMA Process (Level 1, 2 & 3 and the Feel SOMA Teaching course), they are not qualified or experienced to teach the Feel SOMA philosophy.They may be using an application similar in name but not our scientific rationale or technique.Yes, they are movements, but you won’t get the optimal outcome unless you practice the correct technique. Many people and organisations have morphed their own definition of our philosophy into the application. Is Feel SOMA™ just for health and fitness professionals? No, Feel SOMA is for anyone who wants to become empowered to move, feel and live better.It is a philosophy with over sixty years of collective research and application, challenging the view of the human body’s traditional perspective and focusing on the human being. Understanding that we can change tissue (of which there are 7 we focus on) instantly if we first become aware of what the tissue requires.This inclusive client-centred methodology promotes regenerative health through self-care. Regenerative Health is about re-establishing an internal state of balance on many levels. Can Feel SOMA™ be used in conjunction with other modalities or philosophies? Yes, our programs are completely interchangeable with exisiting programs. You may choose to use certain components of the Feel SOMA™ programs to help enhance your already existing program OR our program can be used as stand alone program. Masterclass Can I complete or attend a Masterclass (Level 1 or 2) without completing the Level 1 or Level 2 Immersion? No, a pre-requisite is that all attendees must have the knowledge and skills to apply the various levels of techniques and applications delivered in prior digital or face-to-face Immersions.The Masterclass experience empowers attendees to identify and discover myths, issues and challenges that are commonly labelled in our bodies and implement the Feel SOMA system to create potential solutions. If I have attended a face-to-face Immersion in the past, can I attend a Masterclass of the same level? Yes. What can I expect if I attend a Masterclass? You will be exposed to dogmas that are regularly communicated in our industry, muscles are tight, glutes are weak, core needs strengthening, you are aging so you should feel discomfort and many more.The Masterclass will challenge the status-quo (what is commonly told and believed) by questioning various titles that the body has been given, then applying simple challenges and techniques to see how the tissue responds. Simply, you will be exposed to many issues that are generally put in the “too hard” basket.You will leave the Masterclass with more tools to you, your clients and your business evolve and succeed. Is the Masterclass just for Health & Wellness Professionals? No, the Masterclass will permit you to apply and experience the power of the Feel SOMA™ techniques and applications, previously learnt at a face-to-face Immersion or Digital Immersion.In the Masterclass, you will witness and feel in real-time, the change in tissue response and how it affects the human being on a mental, physical, emotional and spiritual level.
