In the revolutionary Somatics , Thomas Hanna demonstrates that so many problems we accept as inevitable over time-chronic stiffness, bad back, chronic pain, fatigue, and even high blood pressure -need never occur if we maintain conscious control of nerve and muscle, a state which Hanna calls sensory-motor awareness. This gentle, lifelong program can help almost anyone maintain the pleasures of a supple, healthy body indefinitely, with only a five-minute routine once a day.

Review quote

"This is a truly important book. Thomas Hanna makes clear that there is a major category of human health problems--amounting to possibly half of all human health complaints--[that] can be understood and dealt with only by means of sensory reeducation." San Fernando Valley Sun, 1/28/10
