Essential Somatics® Professional Training in Clinical Somatic Education

Essential Somatics® announces its first semester of a two-year professional training program in Somatic Education, in the tradition of Thomas Hanna.

Semester 1, Module 1: February 16 - 23, 2013

Somatic Education, in the tradition of Thomas Hanna, is a safe, highly effective, and scientifically-based method of neuromuscular reeducation that goes to the root cause of most chronic muscle pain: the brain and the way in which it senses and control muscles and movement. It is hands-on movement education that teaches you to help your clients eliminate their own chronic muscle pain for the long term - faster and more efficiently than passive modalities.

This method, developed 30 years ago by Thomas Hanna, Ph.D., teaches people to regain their physical independence, eliminate muscle pain, improve mobility and body awareness, and restore optimum voluntary muscle function.

Many of you have asked me when I will start teaching. One of my clients echoed a sentiment that is all too common; it highlights the importance of training more people in Somatic Education. She said,

"I have certifications in a lot of methods. I have a lot of knowledge, but I still can't seem to help my clients get to the root of their muscular pain. I feel that Somatics is the missing link."

Somatic Education, in the tradition of Thomas Hanna, gets to the root of most chronic muscle pain. It Image 8is the missing link in scientific information about the loss of voluntary muscle function (that is not pathology or disease related).

This training is open to those in bodywork or movement professions, fitness trainers, and healthcare or medical profession. If your current method of bodywork or client/patient care isn't educating your clients to be able to experience long-term pain relief and an ability to independently keep themselves feeling good and moving better, this training is for you!
