The Method – History

The discipline of Clinical Somatic Education (also known as Hanna Somatic Education) was developed by the philosopher Thomas Hanna (1928 – 1990). He devoted years of research to explore the linkages between physical and psychological well-being to the capacity that we all have to alter both behavioural and bodily health through awareness and control of the way in which our bodies move.

 He founded the Novato Institute of Somatic Research in 1975, specifically to study the impacts of “movement awareness”. He drew together the teachings of the Alexander Technique and Feldenkrais, and in so doing identified the phenomenon of “sensory motor amnesia”.

Once identified, he developed the method of somatic education, which enables an individual to replace sensory motor amnesia with sensory motor awareness. It is that awareness that lies at the heart of somatics, and which offers a permanent solution to pain removal.

Somatic Movements

At Align Somatics,  we educate you to understand the brain to body’s reaction to stress and injury. To assess how the body currently moves to discover what movement a particular body can and cannot do. This is the blueprint to access the movements the person cannot do. Through learning specific, slow and gentle movements, the brain will re-learn how to gain voluntary control of these movements.

The precise, but simple movements are designed to reboot peoples brain to muscle communication so that they can remember how to relax persistent muscular tightness, restore functional movement and recover their movement potential.

FAQ

  • What is Somatic Movement?
  • It is a rapidly effective form of neuromuscular education (mind-body training) that goes directly to the root cause of most muscular pain, the brain and how it senses and organises muscles and movement. By learning to regain both awareness, sensation, and motor control of muscles, the brain can remember how to relax and refine muscular recruitment. This process of sensory motor training creates improved muscle function and enhanced sensory awareness.

  • What kind of pain can it treat?
  • 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, accidents and whiplash effects, back pain, repetitive use/stress injuries.

  • What is Sensory Motor Amnesia?
  • 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.

  • How to reverse Sensory Motor Amnesia?
  • Reverse chronic muscle pain by regaining sensory awareness and voluntary control of your muscles and movement. Doing so can enable you to enjoy a rapid and significant improvement in physical comfort, quality of movement, posture and overall appearance.

  • How long should the exercises take?
  • Somatic exercises are not about quantity but rather quality. It is the means whereby practicing 5 focused reps is better than 15 unfocused reps

  • How can Somatics compliment your practice?
  • Somatic Movements also enhances the effectiveness of other forms of bodywork, including improving the body’s ability to hold chiropractic adjustments.
