Format: Paperback
I bought the book over a year ago and went straight to Martha Peterson's (the author's) website i..e. the [...] where I ordered all the DVDs. There are four, one is the basic one, ideal for starting with, then there is one specifically for the leg and hip joints and one for the neck and shoulders and another one for athletes (which Martha said isn't only for athletes as anyone can benefit from it). They have really helped me as had going to the website and the YouTube page.

There is a lot that can be learned from these DVDs and I really need all of them as there are so many muscles that are in need of 'awakening' and so many brilliant, simple to do and highly effective exercises on these DVDs. It is so much easier when you watch them being done and hear the instructions that go along with them and also learn how they are affecting your movement and the intelligence behind the movements. I really have developed a better body awareness. Martha also does one to one lessons over the internet which may interest some people, but I'm pretty happy working through these DVDs for now but have not ruled out using this facility in the future.

I also recommend Viniyoga: Yoga Therapy for the Upper Back Neck and Viniyoga: Yoga Therapy for the Low Back Sacrum with Gary Kraftsow which are both available on Amazon.

I recommend these two instructors to anyone with mobility problems who is fed up with spending large amounts regularly on a host of private practitioners who can only sort out your problems for a few days and 'recommend' you coming back every week indefinitely. For the cost of less than a couple of those sessions, I have been able to cope with these weekly sessions and saved a bundle of my much needed cash. I hope they work as well for all of you.

I nearly gave up playing soccer in my late 20s because of chronic lower back pain. Then, I discovered Somatics and since then I've been completely pain free. Pain is not even an issue anymore.

This book is a much needed modern update of the seminal Somatics 'bible' by Thomas Hanna. The pictures are clear and precise and Martha Peterson does a wonderful job explaining the science behind why this works.

She makes many acknowledgements to Thomas Hanna but in my opinion this book is as important as its inspiration, bringing Somatics into the 21st Century and providing a simple solution for people who have otherwise 'tried everything'.

That more people don't know about Somatics is a travesty.

Genuinely life-changing.

Great principles, lovely exercises, you feel really good.
My psoas problem has gone.

Not quite what you say in the book but I do a full body stretch , then just relax before getting out of bed , an amazing difference. I no longer limp to the bathroom.
I'd love a 1 to 1 class with this lady. But there are some good You tube clips if you need more help.

I found clips about this method on you tube, and liked the principals behind it. It would be more helpful if there was a video with the book to help you get it right. There are very few practitioners in the UK, and they are expensive.

Love the book - clear instructions. There are many books with the Somatics exercises described but this one includes lots of extra guidance on how to get the most from the exercises, how they should feel and be performed. After buying book I bought all Martha's DVDs from her website - they arrived from US quickly postage very reasonable and they work in computers if not DVD player. If you want to learn Somatics for pain relieve the book and DVDs will definitely so you how.

This book is very well written, well thought through, very clear and concise and exercises are explained really well so easy to follow. Theses exercises, if you perform them daily are brilliant and have helped me enormously.

Apart from a couple of mistakes - repetition of a step for one of the exercises and the wrong side stated for another. I found the book to be clear and well laid out.
