We ensure that training programs uphold high standards of education and practice, and maintain a professional registry of their graduates. We are committed to building the community of somatic movement practitioners worldwide and advocating for the profession in legal and governmental arenas. We work to educate the general public about our work and help our colleagues in complementary and alternative medicine, human services, and the performing arts understand its benefits. Registered somatic movement practitioners (link to Find a Practitioner page) have completed extensive training in ISMETA approved programs. They use knowledge of anatomy with combinations of movement, sound, breath, touch and imagery to deepen clients’ understanding of themselves in movement. Somatic movement practitioners work with the body but acknowledge that movement affects the dimensions of psyche and spirit as well. As a result, their work facilitates improved vitality and performance, expanded creative expression and integrated personal transformation in clients’ daily lives.
