Manual manipulation vs. neuromuscular training

A basic understanding of muscle tone recognizes that the seat of control of muscles and movement is not muscles, but the brain, not "muscle memory" but "movement memory", not "posture" but habitual or learned movement patterns.

Lasting changes in muscle tone require movement training at the neurological (i.e., brain) level, something that manual manipulation of muscles accomplishes, at best, slowly, but which can be achieve quickly by somatic education, a discipline that rapidly alters habitual posture, movement, and muscle tone through an internal learning process.
