The methodology of Somatics originates from Thomas Hanna in the 1980s. It uses small curious movements, going further into the muscles that are chronically contracted to release them consciously with gravity to reeducate the muscles bringing them back to zero tonus. It is a neuromuscular reeducation of the soma, moving habitual movements from the lower cortex into the frontal cortex of the brain to make the movements novel, new and conscious. Somatics restores greater mobility to release unconscious reflexes.
By growing the function and ease of the soma, pain releases, as well as chronic contraction/habits that cause pathology or dis-ease in the soma, which allows free spontaneous movement.
