Welcome to Soma Syntax Studio

“I work with the body to alleviate pain, restore function. A ‘Soma Syntax Body’ or ‘harmonious body‘ is the result of structural, and energetic integration: A balance of the body’s multiple systems: fascial-neural-meningeal-visceral-vascular-articular-muscle-brain. . . .  Then the body can heal itself, and achieve greater self-expression.”

Certified Rolfer® Anne Sotelo developed the “Soma Syntax Studio“, to bring relief from pain, improve range of movement, and to cultivate wellness and grace. Your individualized session will draw from her 23 years of bodywork experience.

A session removes restrictions and invigorates your body-mind system connections. Anne is effective at getting you moving and pain free. In addition to Rolfing® myofascial work, she does Manual therapy: Neural Manipulation, Vascular Visceral Therapy, Brain Therapy, Craniosacral, and Lymphatic Drainage. For reeducating what’s been dysfunctional she may use Rolfing Movement® Integration, Pilates, or Fascial Fitness®.
