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.

Life changing. Starting in my late 20s, I was plagued by painful upper back spasms, lasting up to a week. Adding his back stretch routine to the end of my workouts has COMPLETELY prevented the spasms for the past 20 years. So simple to do, so elegantly and insightfully researched, I have recommended this book countless times and will continue to do so as a drug- and surgery-free way to increase flexibility, prevent pain, and reduce stress.
