    Dear Mr. Gold,

    I purchased your book "The Magic Of Somatics" just a couple days ago and it has already been of unbelievable help. I am feeling much better!

    I have a specific question though: I am a basketball player and have sprained my right ankle a year ago. I still have pain there but after undergoing MRI I know it's muscular issues. I have tried the athletes prayer for loose calves and it did help. I am already feeling better than I have almost all of last year. But there is still this feeling of not having total control over my calves/soleus/achilles. Do you have any idea what I could further do to help loosen up the calves and front of shin?

    thanks for your answer, and yes, go ahead and post those comments!

    These somatic movements are truly amazing. I have within just a couple days of using them improved my flexibility back to where it was when I was in elementary school, and I am 30 years old. For me as an athlete it is pretty much a pot of gold.

    All the best,

    Ben Metzger

    Dear Lawrence,

    Thank you so much for you prompt attention. I have downloaded the file.

    Which is great as I had borrowed a copy of Somatics by Thomas Hanna, and I have to return it today.

    That would leave me without the exercises I started yesterday, and guess what I already feel relief in my lower back,

    Once again thank you for your help

    All the best to you
