When our bodies start to feel stiff, sore or tired, we often say that we're "getting old." But is that really the problem? Somatics are gentle movements created by Thomas Hanna in 1975. Much of the physical decline associated with aging is not inevitable, but avoidable. Hanna's practical program of simple and slow movements addresses the mind/body connection and proves that problems you've always thought of as the symptoms of age such as stiffness, bad back, chronic pain, fatigue, and, at times high blood pressure need never occur if you maintain conscious control of your nerves and muscles.
As we go through our lives we are emotionally startled/stressed from various experiences be it other beings, loud noises, traumatic accidents and incidents. It is our natural brain response to tense muscles, but what happens with the severity of an incident or the repeated occurrence is that when we think we have relaxed our muscles we in fact have not. There can still be a 10, 20 even 40 percent contraction unaware to us. This is why you can have a massage or chiropractic adjustment and feel great for a few days and then the pain comes back. The pain returns because your brain has not released the muscle contraction! The beauty of Somatics is that they are extremely easy, are non-invasive and are able to be done safely by most everyone! You do not work up a sweat, you never force a movement or a body part, what you do is move specific muscle groupings very slowly so that the brain realizes what it has been doing and what it now needs to do to release the emotional reaction set in your muscles for who knows how long!
If you suffer from back, neck, leg pain etc., restrained breathing, digestion and poor posture in general, Somatics can change your life very easily! Somatics are also the best preventative for a life of good health and physical structure. If you are a dancer or athlete, these slow movements will protect you from injury. If you are in a stressful or repetitive job, these movements can free your body so that you can be supple and graceful for the rest of your years!
