    Thanks for the great blog Dr. Liebenson.

    I would like for you to comment on the theory behind Hanna Somatics. It has been around for a long time, and I use it in my practice. Do you think it has merit?


    • Craig Liebenson says:

      Somatics is not the subject of my blog. I believe it is a nice technique though, especially for teaching a person to become mindful of release of the connection between different postures and release of tension.
