Soma Lani is board certified with the Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Association of North America, and has completed trauma-informed trainings in several other bodywork and movement modalities, including Pre and Perinatal birthwork for babies and adults. She has been working with mamas and babies for over 25 years. Soma originally hails from Boston and NJ, and has been in private practice since 1996. She was first certified with the work of osteopath Hugh Milne in 1999, and has since studied the Upledger method along with Biodynamics. Soma currently works as a licensed bodyworker and transformational healer in Santa Fe New Mexico. Since those early days she’s had a deep interest in quantum dynamics and perceptual fields as they relate to health and spirituality. Additionally, Soma holds a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Boston College and received her Master’s degree in Nutrition from Boston University and continuing ed in Psychology from Berkeley and Adler College.
In Soma’s words:
“My work is organically heart-coherence based. The resonant field or “language” of the heart is what interests me most as it relates to healing and awakening. I have witnessed time and again how heart resiliency heals trauma and brings out the best in people. Babies and kiddos always remind me there is nothing to prove or “do”. Their heart is unconstricted by this, and their nature can flow fluidly which is how kids are so resilient. My work supports the harmonious cooperation and order of the heart with all the other systems of the body: the synchronization and coherence between the psychological, physical, and biological in all of us, body, mind, spirit. In this sense my work helps to initiate re-patterning and encode new information and regulation. This is the foundation to all of the modalities I use, including therapeutic massage. I believe in the healing power of our innate intelligence and in an individual’s unique pacing if we are given a chance.
