Healthy young bodies are flexible and free from holding patterns* in their soft tissue -- muscles, tendons and fascia -- that cause pain in adults. BioSomatics is a body movement technique built on the idea that people develop a kind of body amnesia. We forget how groups of muscles "work" together. Balance relies on body awareness and gentle somatic movement that can help us regain fluidity. We can release chronic muscular tension and have more efficiently functioning bodies.
Founder of America's Somatic Education, Thomas Hanna was a teacher compelled to share "how our somas are self-healing and self-regulating."
Soma means body. BioSomatics is a learning process of non-strenuous movements designed to expand our options in releasing chronic muscular tension and restoring efficiency in physical functioning.
What Is BioSomatics?
the body perceived from within."
