The groundbreaking program for movement health, flexibility, injury prevention and recovery, and healthy aging by the founder of the field of Somatics.
The groundbreaking program for movement health, flexibility, injury prevention and recovery, and healthy aging.
In the revolutionary Somatics, Thomas Hanna demonstrates that so many problems we accept as inevitable over time chronic stiffness, bad back, chronic pain, fatigue, and even high blood pressure need never occur if we maintain conscious control of nerve and muscle, a state which Hanna calls sensory-motor awareness. This gentle, lifelong program can help almost anyone maintain the pleasures of a supple, healthy body indefinitely, with only a five-minute routine once a day.
A seminal introduction to the field somatics, essential reading for everyone interested in any aspect of health, fitness, or body work.
“If I could, I would put Somatics in the hands of every neurologist, internist, nurse, psychophysiological therapist and clinical psychologist in the country.” Elmer Green, Ph.D., The Menninger Clinic
