What is Somatic Movement Education?

Somatic Movement Education or Hanna Somatics (named after the creator Thomas Hanna) is a rapidly effective form of neuromuscular (mind-body training) movement re-education. The method works by directing movement to the root cause of most chronic muscular pain: the brain and the way in which it senses and organises the muscles and movement. By learning to regain awareness, sensation, and motor control of muscles – an educational process that can only be achieved through movement – the brain can remember how to relax and move the muscles properly. This process of sensory motor training creates improved muscle function and enhanced sensory awareness.

Somatic Education is a safe, gentle and common sense approach to reverse chronic pain. It is the only method of pain relief and sensory motor training that targets the condition of SENSORY MOTOR AMNESIA (SMA).

Sensory Motor Amnesia is the condition of chronically tight muscles that have learned to stay contracted due to repeated and reflexive response to stress such as accidents, injuries, surgeries, repetitive tasks, and on-going emotional stress. The resulting patterns of muscular contraction that develop result in such common conditions as chronic back pain, neck, shoulder and hip pain, limited mobility, joint pain, poor posture, shallow breathing, and uneven leg length.

Somatics particularly helps relieve pain and disability associated with common health complaints such as: headaches, stiff or painful joints and muscles, fatigue, poor posture, breathing problems, impaired movement, accident trauma and whiplash effects, back pain, repetitive use/stress injuries.

Hanna Somatic Education helps you to enjoy freedom from pain and more comfortable movement for the rest of your life.
