“Margery has given me great insights into what motivates my daughter and what triggers some of her behaviors - because, as parents of special needs children - sometimes we lose perspective of our own children in the face of day-to- day struggles.”

“Margery Segal’s practice is therapy and touch akin to washing in a mountain spring. I experience no separation between the words, the seeing, and the nourishing beat of my heart. I know when I walk from her doors, we have dissolved the boundaries between careful attention and action. My life is now more than I could expect.”

“The Family Somatic program (a training for professionals taught in Brazil) is a very complete methodology of working with family from a somatic and psychological perspective. Connecting very efficient technics of perceptions of the family’s body, with tools that are very efficient to help kids in their developmental process. All this with the background of perinatal psychology, attachment theory and embryology. This course forms people to meet family with their needs and to provide somatic support with the idea that the family is a system to be taken care of, as a whole.”

- Mariana Camerote

“Margery offers a unique chance to reflect, process, and experience in such a beautiful way. The high level of possibility of exploration within a relatively short time is refreshing and elegant. Anything I brought with me during the days of meeting was perfectly ok, be it silly, frenetic, peaceful, small or big. I so appreciate her guidance and space setting for a group process like this”

– M.B.

“Beyond her education and professional experience, Margery is insightful and thoughtful in her approach to working with moms. I’ve participated in similar programs and was particularly impressed with her offerings – especially the journal topics and third-party resources she provided. Highly recommend!”

“I came to Margery with knee and hip pain that expensive physical therapy hadn’t helped with at all. Working with Margery, I saw enormous improvement, and am now able to sleep, walk, and practice yoga again without pain. For that alone, I’m extremely grateful. But I also got much more that I never expected – a greater connection with and understanding of my own body; awareness and release of old physical and emotional habits and patterns that were causing me pain, and just a greater confidence and presence in my body. It’s been a revelation. I recommend her to everyone.”

“Margery’s work is transformative. She began working with my son (who was born with an airway malformation and underwent many surgeries) when he was nine months old. We have seen incredible development not only in how he is able to move his body but in his confidence to do so and therefore, his pride and happiness. Margery has taught me how to listen to and help my son in ways I never could have on my own. Her work has helped me help him grow, and helped feel connected to him. For that I will remain deeply grateful and inspired by her work.”
