Soma Training Program
Kevin Cruz has been in the fitness industry for over 12 years and is one of only 100 certified ELDOA trainers in the world. As a personal trainer, he was constantly encountering clients who suffered from back pain due to compression of the joints. Wanting to help his clients overcome their pain, he began studying the ELDOA method created by Dr. Guy Voyer. After applying these precise forms of postural exercise to his own clients, he noticed a vast improvement in their pain and quality of movement. His passion for helping people overcome their physical pain through fitness drove him to start Soma Physical Wellness.
Soma Physical Wellness focuses on helping people relieve chronic pain, and increase their physical awareness, strength, and flexibility. We do this through the use of precise postural and segmental exercise.
We offer classes in ELDOA, Myo- Fascial Stretching, and targeted Segmental Strength Training. Our classes are centered around precise and intentional movement. Applying these principles to each of our classes allows our clients to derive the most benefits from their training. It is our belief that everyone can increase their quality of life by increasing their quality of movement.
I have been working with Kevin for about 7 months at least 3 times a month in a combination of private and semi-private lessons to address specific issues with compressed pain and lack of mobility in my neck and lower back, as well as hip and knee pain. It took me about 6 lessons to really start to build up enough awareness, strength and flexibility to hold the poses, but once I did, my improvement rapidly increased. I skipped the surgery to replace 2 discs in my neck and instead now have no neck pain and have much better posture – no longer stick my chin out. My overall strength and wellbeing have significantly improved with Kevin’s help, and I have recommended him to several friends who have added ELDOA to their overall health and fitness regimen.
I have been training with Kevin Cruz for the past year, particularly “The ELDOA Method.” I was having severe shoulder pain and I suffer from a bulging disk in my lower back. My orthopedic surgeon referred me to a pain management doctor who suggested that I just get an epidural to numb the back pain. That was not acceptable to me, so I began ELDOA to stretch my fascia to lend the opportunity for fluid to enter the area of the bulging disk to assist in realignment of the spine. This process has given me great relief to my lower back and I can feel as though my spine is self-correcting. My shoulder pain has completely subsided. Thanks to Kevin and “The ELDOA Method.
