Stephanie Tack


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
  • Reflexology
  • 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!
