Hanna Somatic Education (aka HSE) teaches you how to release muscles that have involuntarily contracted.
There are only a few Somatic therapist in the UK and one is Jonathan Hunt a former Premiership footballer who had to retire in 2003 due to back pain.
When manipulative therapies failed to help him he tried the Hanna Somatic programme and was so impressed that he trained as a therapist himself.
Some of the suggested exercises for backache are –
Lie on your back, arms resting by your side, knees bent, and feet hip-width apart tucked up near your bottom.
As you breathe in, arch your lower back by pressing your tail bone down, then very slowly flatten your back into the floor as you exhale, to relax.
Rest, then repeat slowly and gently ten to 15 times.
When you finish, straighten and stretch your legs.
Don’t attempt any of these until you have checked with your GP first and don’t overdo them as they should be comfortable.
Jonathan says ‘Hanna Somatic Education (HSE) can help people who wish to improve the quality of their lives. Most people try the technique because they have pain, with some regular sessions and daily self practice the pain goes away. Clients then feel confident to manage their own issues without having to rely upon 1-1 sessions’.
