The article talks about body & mind, a core principle in somatics representing the totality of one's embodied consciousness. Other core principles include touch consciousness, movement, neuroplasticity, emotional expression, deep states of relaxation, and spirit. The Rubenfeld Synergy Method (RSM) is a somatic practice that integrates somatic function and structure with emotional posture, memory, energy, vibration, and release.
