somatic education

Hanna somatic education

A method developed in 1973 by Dr T Hanna, which is based on the belief that muscles chronically contracted due to stress and trauma eventually reach a point where they can no longer remember how to relax. Hanna called this phenomenon sensory-motor amnesia; the intent of somatic education is to input new sensory information that will allow the person’s muscles relearn how to relax.

somatic education,

n mind-body learning approaches that are kinesthetic and somatosensory in nature—that is, motion and awareness are taught to return the patient to intuitive, natural movement.
