Somatic Movement Education Therapy: 
	•	engages and addresses the whole person in a holistic approach
	•	enhances sensory motor skills through brain based learning
 
Private Sessions
Through observation & support, options are individually designed to enhance somatic awareness, through an experiential learning process.  Props, such as balls or pillows, may sometimes be used to help facilitate embodiment.
• Sessions typically include a combination of hands-on guidance with playful games and exercises.
 
Rehab- Utilizes methods of neuro-developmental re-patterning.  Integrates movement tools to help emotional stabilization and support kinesthetic connections.  Fosters aid in recovery from injury, trauma & disabilities.
 
Performance (actors, dancers)- Enhance stage presence.  Gain technical mastery of choreography and character development.  Discover and utilize tools to develop deeper expression, grounding, integrity and communication.
 
* Recommended for all ages.  Celeste is experienced in working with infants and toddlers to young and elderly adults.
