Robin Konie is a Registered Somatic Movement Therapist (RSMT). She offers one on one movement therapy sessions in the Utah County area.

what is somatic movement therapy?

Movement Therapy can be useful for a variety of reasons.  Maybe you are suffering from chronic pain. Perhaps you are recovering from an injury. You may simply want to feel more connected to your body. No matter who you are Somatic Movement Therapy can help you!

This work draws upon the following Somatic influences:

  • Laban Movement Analysis
  • Bartenieff Fundamentals
  • Neurological Developmental Patterns
  • Yoga
  • Alexander Technique
  • Body Mind Centering

Each session is tailored to meet your specific needs. Sessions involve hands-on facilitation and guided movement experiences.  Clients will gain a better understanding of their body and learn about their personal movement patterns.

somatic movement therapy may be ideal for you if you are:

  • Suffering from arthritis
  • Suffering from muscular imbalances
  • Dealing with chronic back, neck, or shoulder pain
  • Struggle with balance and stability
  • Working with developmental issues
  • Suffering from sciatica, scoliosis, or sacro-iliac pain
  • Recovering from an accident or injury
  • Looking to improve your technical skill, coordination, and grace

how does it work?

Basic body connections are established early in life through a developmental progression. These are the building blocks for all movement.  Because of habits, injuries, or emotional trauma these patterns can get overridden. The resulting tension patterns limit motion. They create misalignment and dis-ease in the body.  The result is often muscle fatigue and stiffness. If left alone, it can become permanent resulting in inflammation, chronic fatigue, and joint degeneration.

Somatic Movement Therapy helps you become aware of your own tension patterns, and provides basic building blocks for a “mind-body” re-education. The result is a more efficient and expressive body.  As you increase your awareness and strengthen core connections, you can better relax those over-worked muscles and find more mobility and support.
