Martin Blows, CCSE came to Somatics almost by accident after being told he had tight hamstrings. In searching the Internet he found information about Thomas Hanna and his work. Reading The Myth of Aging resonated with Martin and rang so many bells with him that he quickly recognised how powerful and relevant Hanna’s ideas were and was hooked. At the time Martin was struggling with constant low back pain and had given up playing golf; Somatics changed all that! Martin is now playing golf again and can lead an active life once more.
In 2013 Martin completed the Essential Somatics® Hanna Somatic Exercise Coach training. He began taking classes and working with individuals, and continued his Somatic journey to certify as a Clinical Somatic Educator with Essential Somatics.
“Along the way I’ve tried most of the traditional therapies; osteopaths, Chiropractors, physiotherapists. acupuncture, massage, Alexander Technique, pilates, yoga. But none of them enabled me to take charge of my own problems and become my own healer. Somatics enables me to be in control of my body and to manage aches and pains for myself. I am keen to share this learning with as many people as possible and help them to regain control of their muscles and bodies, and live active, flexible and pain free lives.”
Martin offers clinical sessions, one-to-one Somatic Movement coaching, and classes.
