This is a truly important book. Thomas Hanna makes clear that there
is a major category of human health problems - amounting to possibly
half of all human health complaints - [that] can be understood and
dealt with only by means of sensory reeducation.
Helmut Milz, M.D.
former consultant to the World Health Organization
This book could make a real difference for the vast number of people
who suffer from musculoskeletal ailments. I heartily recommend it to
everybody who wants to enjoy his own existence more fully.

One of the most profound revolutions in our thinking
concerns the fundamental connections between body and mind. Now that we
begin to understand something about our inner healing powers, along
comes Somatics to give form and shape to our new-found knowledge. We
have been blessed by Tom Hanna through the publication of this book.

Somatic education is fortunate to have Thomas Hanna.
His newest book, Somatics, marks a new maturity and sophistication in
the field he named.

If I could, I would put Somatics in the hands of
every neurologist, internist, nurse, psychophysiologic therapist, and
clinical psychologist in the country.

Somatics should be translated into every Western language, and it should be read by all parents and educators.

Chief Physician, Munich Health Park
The missing link between many doctors and their
patients can be rediscovered if both parties understand what Somatics
is really about: how wisely and wonderfully we are organized to live a
better life than many of us do.
