Benefits of Somatics
Wikipedia: The field of somatics encompasses holistic body-centered approaches that help people reconnect with self and transform through movement practices that promote psycho-physical awareness and well-being. The term is derived from the word "Somatic" (Greek "somatikos", soma: “living, aware, bodily person”) which means, pertaining to the body, experienced and regulated from within.
How is This Different?
Somatic movement is an extremely powerful, comfortable, fast-acting, and long-lasting process for vanishing chronic pain and improving function.
Bones get broken, ligaments get sprained, tendons and muscles get torn, skin gets cut, etc. The usual stuff of injuries, these are all forms of tissue damage.
Tissue damage heals. So, reason compels us to this recognition: If the person doesn't recover completely from their injury, it's not because of broken bone, sprained ligament, strained tendon, or torn muscle. It's something else.
Why do some injuries become chronic injuries?
One commonly advanced explanation is "adhesions", or "scar tissue adhesions".
Adhesions are the body's way of bandaging itself. They occur when, during healing, layers of connective tissue become "glued" to one another. This actually happens. That gluing restricts movement -- especially desirable during healing, but becomes completely unnecessary and detrimental once tissue has healed.
Adhesions can easily be freed by massage, and those who have received physical therapy after an injury often receive massage, especially athletes. Why, then, do the effects of injury linger?
