Hanna Somatic Education and Treatment

Hanna Somatic Education
Hanna Somatics is an integral part of working not only with vocal performers but with anyone experiencing tensions, misalignments and pain that limits their vocal life and overall wellness. Many of the vocal problems people have are not isolated to the larynx. Things that are happening all throughout the body can have an impact on the vocal sound we create. Chronic muscular tensions that affect ease of movement, breathing, and speaking and singing are not merely muscular tensions, they are (neuro)muscular tensions. Hanna Somatic Education changes the communication patterns between the brain and the muscles and within the sensorimotor areas of the brain itself.
