Somatics Library

What is Somatics?

Part 1 of a 4 part article by the founder of the field of Somatics, which provides philosophical and academic discussion about some central concepts and questions of the field.

Karen Hewitt: Crippling Knee Problem

A car accident in which Karen slammed on the brakes to avoid killing a bicyclist led to a chronic knee problem. The pain gradually worsened, until she had to avoid almost any exercise, including walking up the stairs. Knee surgeries only made the condition worse. Despite that, doctors declared the surgery a success (although they chastised her for failing to recover from it), and attributed her problems to a rare bout of post surgical arthritic conditions. Thirteen years later, Karen had to alternate between crutches and a wheelchair.

In Memory of Thomas Hanna

The bodywork community lost a vital member in Thomas Hanna, who died in a late July auto accident near Novato, California. He was 61.

Curiously, however, even though the invitation remained open for one hundred years, no one took up residence.
