Dynamic Embodiment™ is a form of somatic education and movement
therapy developed by Martha Eddy that integrates skilled touch, movement &
compassionate dialogue to help people of all ages and abilities to relieve their

system of Laban Movement Analysis (LMA), acknowledged in areas of movement
efficiency and intentionality from Bartenieff Fundamentals, and supported by
sensitive touch from Body-Mind Centering® (BMC®), Dynamic Embodiment
attends to the whole person. Dynamic Embodiment teaches each person to
