Hanna Somatic Bodywork
One On One Hanna Somatic Bodywork Sessions to transform the way you EXPERIENCE your body.
Hanna Somatic Bodywork is a a method that solves problems. Problems that do not show up on x-rays or MRIs. Aches, pains, and tension that are not alleviated by traditional "fixes", pills, surgeries, and manipulations.
Hanna Somatic Education® is a rapidly effective form of neuromuscular (mind-body training) movement re-education that goes directly to the root cause of most chronic muscular tension: the brain and the way in which it senses and organizes the muscles and movement. A certified Hanna Somatic Educator® works in partnership with their client to systematically engage and connect with the muscles that are causing imbalance and pain in their body.
A Somatic Approach To Bodywork For Modern Times:
With their hands, the Hanna Somatic Educator® guides the client to undo the cycle of pain and dysfunction that causes:
- Postural disturbances
- Muscular pain and tension
- Headaches and migraine related with muscular restrictions
- Decreased movement and restriction range of motion
The client is left with a profound feeling of freedom within their own body being able to move without restriction, tension, or hesitation. Some clients describe the post-Somatic Movement experience like floating in water.
What Somatic Sessions like.....
Each sessions begins with an assessment. The Hanna Somatic assessment is based in posture and understanding the way you experience your own body. Your muscles work hard all day long to maintain your posture and how the way you hold yourself might relate to the discomfort you're feeling or restrictions you experience.
Using Hanna Somatic techniques, you are guided by your Hanna Somatic Educator to connect with and relax areas of tension in your body. The work is done fully clothed with the client either lying down on a table or sitting in a chair. The slow, focused movements initiated by the conscious part of your brain to override painful patterns being maintained unconsciously. This allows for durable and rapid change in the manner in which your muscles are used by your brain to move your body. This is mind over matter at its very best. The techniques are gentle, painless and powerful.
