Q: If this method works so well, why hasn’t my doctor heard of it?
A:First, most doctors and even physical trainers aren't yet aware of this.
In 1680, Herman Boerhaave, the founder of clinical medicine noted that pandiculations bring the muscles to rest.
In Europe, they have been working for quite some with various types of sensory-motor modalities such as this one.
Thomas Hanna, who wrote Somatics (1988) systematized pandiculations as somatics exercises and created Hanna Somatic Education.
Modern day Somatics has been with us over 100 years now.
A key distinction is in the holistic body wide approach which encompasses the brain, mind and body.
U.S. doctors mainly look at pathologies and seem to treat muscular pain with medicine, whereas this doesn’t fix the problem nor does it get to the root of the matter where the brain can reverse course.
Instead of producing inflammation. This can be reversed when the nervous system begins to adjust back to neutral.
We can self-empower ourself and learn how to soothe, ease and repair our muscles & nervous system from a standpoint of self-awareness using the brain as the change agent.
Many doctors are coming on board after being frustrated themselves since we all want successful outcomes in the area of health & well-being.
New for 2017
The American College of Physicians (ACP) are now saying "this is the first thing to do to relieve pain".
What they are referring to do is what is known as MCE, MBSR, and PR.
Our system - known as somatics exercises is a combination of MCE (motor control exercises), MBSR (mindful-based stress reduction), and PR (progressive relaxation).
In effect, you get a 3 for 1.
