Hanna Somatics Overview

Hanna Somatic Education (also known as Clinical Somatics) is a safe, gentle and common sense approach to eliminating chronic muscle pain for the long term. It is the only sensory motor training method that teaches you to reverse the root cause of most chronic muscle pain and gives you strategies to reduce muscle tension and pain in the future. In HSE we teach you, through simple movements, how to relax the muscles that contribute to your pain.

The Three Components of Hanna Somatics

Sensory Motor Amnesia

"SMA" is the condition of chronically-tight muscles that develops due to accidents, injuries, surgeries, and on-going stress.

The Stress Reflexes

The brain responds to stress within three specific full- body reflexes: the Red Light, Green Light and Trauma Reflexes.


Not to be confused with static stretching, this is the safest and easiest way to restore muscles to their full function and optimum length.

Hanna Somatics helps with common muscular pain conditions such as back pain, hip pain, knee and foot pain and Sciatica. For a full list and a description of Hanna Somatics, click the link below.
