Sensory Motor Amnesia (SMA)


Sensory Motor Amnesia is the condition of chronically tight muscles that develops due to accidents, injuries, surgery and on-going stress.


These muscles have learned to stay so contracted that, no matter what you do - stretching, massage, taking medication etc - they won't relax for the long term.


Muscles that have learned to stay contracted must relearn how to relax.


Thomas Hannah Somatics goes to the root of the problem; your brain and nervous system which controls your muscles and movement.


Your brain has simply forgotten how to relax these muscles, so you must retrain the brain to retrain your muscles in order to reverse pain, stiffness, achiness, thereby regaining flexiblity and better mobility.


Once you begin to recognise how Sesory Motor Amnesia shows up in your body,

using very simple movement patterns, you will be more aware of your movements and daily activities that contribute to the build up of stress, pain and tension in the body.


Once learned, You will be able to perform these simple movements at home and feel the benefits immediately.
