Hi, my name is Stephanie Tack and I am a Somatic Movement Therapist & Embodiment Educator living in Venice Beach, California.
My personal healing journey has led me to discover the power and wisdom of the body. The body always knows. I have used Somatic Movement Therapy and other embodied wellness techniques to eliminate my: Migraines, Low Back Pain (from sports injury), Pelvic Floor Trauma (from surgery), Frozen Shoulder and chronic Nerve Pain. These practices have helped me to overcome: anxiety, depression and trauma. In fact, Somatic practices have gifted me with an overall greater sense of wellbeing, they have elevated me to a higher vibration and they have allowed me to experience more freedom and fuller expression. All without drugs, and all using merely the wisdom of my body.
On my healing journey I have gained training in a variety of bodywork techniques and healing modalities including:
- Cranio-Sacral Balancing
- Nerve Calming Massage
- Lymphatic Drainage Massage
- Ayurvedic Massage
- Polarity Therapy (Energy Healing)
- Stretch Therapy
- Anatomy & Exercise Science
- Medical Qi Gong & Chinese Medicine
- Body Mind Centering
- Developmental Movement Re-Patterning
- Bartenieff Fundamentals
- Laban Movement Analysis
I hold certifications in:
- Somatic Movement Therapy & Education
- BodyMind Dancing
- Polarity Therapy
- Shamanic Trance Dance Facilitation
- Akashic Records
- Spiritual Counseling (Interfaith Minister)
- Hypnosis/ NLP
I received a Masters degree in Dance from Hollins University/American Dance Festival Program at Duke University, a BFA degree in Dance from the University of California at Santa Barbara and I have a background as a dancer – dancing & teaching professionally in New York City for 20 years.
My interest is in exploring the intersection of body, mind and spirit through dance and healing practices. I am currently: seeing private clients for individual healing sessions, leading group classes worldwide and producing embodiment experiences and healing rituals for individuals, couples and groups.
I look forward to sharing my healing talents and decades of research into wellness and the body/mind connection with you!
