About Tanya Fitzpatrick
I have suffered from muscular tension for 23 years. My problems started when I lost my mum to cancer at the age of 13. My stress response to her death kicked off a nasty habit of grinding my teeth.
Fast forward 23 years. I'd broken 5 mouth guards, worn down all my back teeth and suffered from constant shoulder and neck tension. I spent many hours and thousands of pounds on various types of treatments and practiced a lot of yoga. But none of these methods solved my problem, until I discovered Somatic Movement. This was the missing link in understanding why and learning how to dissolve my tension.
The simple fact to why this method is so effective is down to one reason, Somatic Movement addresses the tension habits you’ve adapted throughout your life time in response to all the stress and injuries you’ve sustained.
It is only you who can undo your habits. You have the answer, all you need is the skills and this is why I created Align Somatics so you can find a lasting solution to your tension.
