Somatic Offerings

Somatic Awareness

Somatic awareness is the practice of being in tune with your body, by paying attention to its sensations and movements. It involves being mindful of physical sensations such as tension, relaxation, pain, and pleasure, and understanding how your body responds to various situations. By being aware of these sensations, you can use techniques such as breathing exercises and gentle movements to promote a healthier lifestyle.


Why Use Somatic Awareness?

Somatic work is commonly used in conjunction with talk therapy to improve physical and mental well-being. Talk therapy that does not involve the body, does not allow us to fully heal. Traumatic events, or even just living a busy life, can cause people to disconnect from their bodies. When we connect to our bodies, we are able to move with more ease and understanding through big emotions and experiences. 
Somatic-based work can be particularly effective for conditions such as chronic pain, stress, and anxiety.


Stellarfeels Approach

1:1 sessions offer somatic and movement practices to help people become aware of their holding patterns, move stuck emotions, and connect more deeply to the signals and intelligence of their own bodies.

Vanessa helps people develop rituals, ask questions, and find deep self-compassion through exercises or techniques that encourage sitting with deep/hidden parts of themselves that are holding onto pain, fear, and stress. Somatic work can address childhood and other traumas without having to share or talk about the traumas. During the sessions, we will bring attention to your body, practice feeling, describe and connect with the sensations that arise and shift. Ultimately, we will work together to find ways to live more fully in your body to release stress and find more balance in your daily life.


Embodiment Package

The Embodiment Package is an approach to health and well-being that emphasizes the connection between mind and body. To help individuals connect with their body, a variety of techniques may be used such as breathwork, movement, mindfulness, meditation, and other body-centered practices. You will leave these sessions with a deeper understanding of somatics, embodiment, and how to integrate them into your daily life.

Package Includes:

  • Four 1:1 sessions (over two months) with an Integrative Somatic Trauma Therapy practitioner

  • Personalized resources and educational material

Price: $395


1:1 Embodiment Sessions

Participants will work through 60-minute sessions to obtain basic education about the nervous system and the science behind their emotions; why we react the way we do and how to be responsive not reactive. Each session is designed for your individual needs to help reach self-improvement goals through practical tools and resources to address challenges and build their sensations vocabulary. Sessions can be held in-person or virtually.



Pleasure Sourcing: Embodied Movement Workshop

Pleasure Sourcing Workshops are a great opener or mid-day workshop for conferences, meetings, or retreats. Participants are guided to slow down and become aware of what sensations are bringing them joy in the present moment. No dance experience is necessary. We use simple physical actions to explore and reflect on how we can incorporate more pleasure into our daily lives. Participants follow their pleasurable sensations and notice what questions, thoughts, and experiences arise. This workshop has proven effective in team-building, decreased stress, and increased relaxation and enjoyment.

Available virtually and in-person.
