I am one of the owners of Somatic Movement Center in Watertown, MA. We are currently working on putting together preliminary data on the efficacy of Clinical Somatic Education for scoliosis so that we can apply for research funding from the Scoliosis Research Society in the spring.

I am looking for several volunteers with idiopathic scoliosis to participate in case studies and receive free Clinical Somatic Education sessions. CSE is a very safe, gentle neuromuscular re-education technique which releases involuntary, chronic muscle contraction that can pull the spine out of alignment. We have a great deal more information on our web site: http://www.somaticmovementcenter.com .

Participants in the case studies will receive a minimum of four hands-on sessions (60-90 minutes in length), one session per week, at our office in Watertown. They will also be asked to do gentle self-care exercises for about 20 minutes every day at home.

CSE has been shown to be highly effective for idiopathic scoliosis, but we have very little data of our own, which we need to have in order to apply for funding.

If you are interested, please email me at [email protected] m.
