Hanna Somatics is movement education that guides you to improve the connection between your muscles and brain so you can be in voluntary control of relaxing your muscles. By making very small and slow movements you are providing yourself with new sensory information to re-set the resting level of muscles so that this new level is maintained. This rebalances and integrates all your functioning and frees you from constraint psychologically, emotionally and physiologically.

Actively you are replacing ‘old’ uncomfortable habit patterns with new ones and gaining active voluntary control of a formerly passive involuntary process. By inviting you to use the voluntary motor cortex of your brain, Hanna Somatic Movements, lay a scent for neurons to follow and create new pathways that refine your motor control, relieve stiffness and pain and enhances your performance, effortlessly.

She believes this phenomenal work bridges the gap between the fields of personal health and education because at its core lies self understanding and self trust that continually improves from being able to sense into your own internal proprioceptive feedback.
