Somatic Patterning is the first book of its kind to provide a comprehensive overview of the somatic field. It covers a broad array of topics, including working with reflexes and developmental patterning to change deep-seated patterns, patterning joint and muscles function to improve efficiency and performance, and exploring organic and fluid movement approaches to release deep levels of stress. This new book also presents exercises based on the latest research for training postural muscles to achieve joint stability and is well documented with a comprehensive history, glossary, endnotes, bibliography, and index.
