Sotai helps with:

  • sprains and strains
  • repetitive stress injuries
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • stiff or injured necks
  • limited range of motion (from whatever cause)

Sotai exercises use movement, resistance, and breath to make certain movements easier or less painful, and to increase range of motion. They typically involve determining what movement is difficult or painful and then making a movement opposite to the painful or difficult one. The movements are similar to ones used in physical therapy exercises, but sotai works with breath as well as movement. In sotai, one usually takes a very deep breath in and then exhales while making the movement, holding the position for a few seconds, and then releasing. Sound complicated? Don’t worry! If we think sotai can help you, we’ll tailor the movement to what your body needs and review the exercise as much as you want until you feel comfortable with it.
