Non Linear Movement Method ®

The Non Linear Movement Method ® is a powerful somatic movement modality that encourages reconnection to your body's wisdom by allowing it to lead the way as we identify & unwind physical & emotional patterns.


Set to music & through gentle movements we listen to & allow the body to guide us in how it wants to move in order to shift stuckness, thought loops & unexpressed feelings.

The result is a self-led unwinding of the nervous system.

Through continuous movement, this allows the bodies natural intelligence to release & process contractions, stress, overwhelm & emotional tension. The body becomes highly attuned to all sensations & can note, react or release fluidly without needing to suppress or adding to traumatic build up.

Benefits of Non Linear Movement

Smooths Out The Nervous System

The demands of modern life create stress and tension in the body and an overactive mind. The NLM Method encourages an identifying and unwinding of the patterns of contraction and through gentle, non-force movements relieves the bodily tension and underlying mental loops. The result is a systematic, self-guided unburdening of the nervous system.

Opens Access to Bodily Wisdom

By putting emphasis on movement and circumventing the analytical mind and loops of tense thinking the natural intelligence of our bodies is accessed. Through gentle guidance the mechanisms of 'freeze' and refusal to feel are loosened and bodily wisdom can create the necessary actions and releases.

Awakens Sexual Energy & Sensual Sensation

As tension, contraction and emotion are being released the body becomes sensitized and we are able to feel deeper. One of the marked results of this sensitization is an ability to feel increased pleasure and well being. Participants report an increased ability to connect through their body, both with themselves and others.

Processes & Identifies Emotions

As the body unwinds and the mind relaxes its pressured pace the emotions associated with these patterns become apparent and are being let go of. You can note recurring emotional loops for further processing and at the same time allow emotions to simply rise and release.

Releases Trauma Patterns into Flow

One of the results of traumatic experience is 'freeze', a state in which body, mind and emotions are stuck in a state of numbness. The NLM facilitates a continued movement, which gently opens the freeze pattern and allows for recognition and release of the underlying bodily and emotional patterns.

Unites Mind & Body

Through continued engagement with the release of contraction and facilitation of emotional awareness the engrained patterns become apparent and less pronounced. Over time physical sensation can be engaged with and the acceptance and tolerance of all sensation increases. Intimacy with whatever is present is possible.
