What does somatic mean?
Somatic stems from the Greek Word Soma which means living body in wholeness. In 1976 Thomas Hanna formally developed the field of somatics. This field of practice supports movement awareness where individuals work subjectively, with body-mind connectivity. In Somatics one’s ‘lived’ experience is recognized and integrated into the body-based practice.
