Welcome to Rising Body Therapies, home of Jesse Guerrero, certified advanced SOMA practitioner, Licensed Massage Therapist and Level 1 certified Biosomatics movement therapist.

SOMA Neuromuscular Integration® is a form of manual therapy performed on your connective tissue, muscles, joints and bones. Unlike traditional forms of massage or physiotherapy, SOMA’s primary focus is working with the connective tissue. This tissue facilitates movement in the body, organizes structure and supports nervous and circulatory system functions.

SOMA helps reorganize and reeducate the fascia, or connective tissues within the body to release chronic pain, align structural imbalance, and effectively revitalize your entire body. It has its origins in the work of Dr. Ida P. Rolf (Rolfing). You can learn more about SOMA and its origins here.

SOMA works for:

  • Pain—Injuries, traumas and chronic over-use issues such as sport and car accidents, low back and knee pain, spinal injuries, carpel tunnel, broken bones and painful joints
  • Rehabilitation—Pre and post operation recovery, increasing range-of-motion, decreasing inflammation, improving or transforming movement patterns
  • Symptomatic conditions & ailments—Asthma, depression, repetitive strain injuries, carpel tunnel, low energy, poor posture or breathing, fibromyalgia, ADD/ADHD
  • Enhancement—Athletic optimization, life transitions, revealing and releasing old habitual patterns, increasing body awareness, getting unstuck
  • Stress—Removing strain and tension, increasing flexibility, supporting the ability to find calm and quiet, helping promote a restorative relationship with your body.
