Soma Training: The Missing Link for Your Body

Living Fit welcomes all to discover why professional athletes, the Dallas Stars, Vancouver Canucks, top PGA golfers and more utilize Soma Training. Although it is elite personal training and bodywork, it’s for everyone, not only athletes.

      Soma Training is the name for ground-breaking exercises created by French Osteopath Guy Voyer, DO, who understood that training only the muscles you see in the mirror is obsolete.

      For example, inversion tables and spinal decompression machines are passive and don’t get to the root of back pain and instability because they don’t strengthen the muscle chains that support the joints. Soma Training gives your body the missing links it needs. Voyer created an in-depth, effective, therapeutic exercise rooted in European osteopathic principles which increases athletic performance, lessens injury risk, relieves chronic pain and issues, and allows you to get more from your body. One technique, ELDOA, activates muscles and tissues targeting specific spinal joints to increase disc height, joint stability, reduce pain and nerve compression.

      “Soma Training can train precise ligamentous structures to create better joint integrity among many other techniques, and is a great complement to osteopathy, physical therapy, cranial sacral therapy, chiropractic and other body therapies,” explains our newest addition to the team, Lisa Swarbrick of SomaFitWellness.com. “It can also benefit conditions such as sprains, strains, chronic pains, athletic syndromes and disc bulges.”

      Whether you are an athlete or everyday person, it’s always the right time to discover how to fine-tune your body’s performance. Start right now!
