"To every emotional state corresponds a personal conditioned pattern of muscular contraction without which it has no existence." - Moshe Feldenkrais 


Emotional Effector Patterns are the building blocks of our emotional life. Alba Emoting™ is a somatic approach to emotional expression, which enables one to induce emotional states at will through respiratory-facial-postural actions that trigger physiological components developed by Chilean neuroscientist Susana Bloch. Alba Method is the name the US practitioners have chosen. Emotional Body® is a development of the pedagogy of the emotional effector patterns by Laura Bond, incorporating somatic sensing. Learning the emotional effector patterns can help you to cultivate your expressive capabilities; help you develop the ability to sense, reconnect with, and manage these organic tools so you can develop emotional fluency.

Jessica worked with Susanna Bloch in Chile, and is a Master teacher of Alba Method (Alba Emoting certification 5). Jessica has also been working closely with Laura Bond as she developed her Emotional Body method for teaching the Emotional Effector Patterns.
