What is it?

Hanna Somatics, (named after founder Thomas Hanna) is a rapid, effective form of movement re-education.It goes directly to the root cause of most chronic muscular pain; the brain, and the way it senses and organises muscles for movement.

Learning to regain awareness, sensation, and motor control of muscles is an educational process that can only be achieved through movement. It trains the brain to remember how to relax and move the muscles properly.

Hanna Somatics is a safe, gentle and common sense approach to reverse chronic pain.

It is the only method of pain relief and sensory motor training that targets the condition of SENSORY MOTOR AMNESIA (SMA). 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
  • historic and on-going emotional stress

The resulting patterns of muscular contraction cause common conditions such as;

  • chronic pain in the back, neck, shoulder, hip or knees
  • limited mobility
  • poor posture
  • sciatica
  • shallow breathing
  • foot pains
  • uneven leg length
  • headaches
  • arthritic symptoms
  • scoliosis of the spine

Hanna Somatic Education helps you to enjoy freedom from pain and more comfortable movement for the rest of your life.
