Over the course of our lives we are subjected to varying levels of stress both physical and emotional which we respond to by contracting our muscles. These muscular contractions become so deeply unconscious that eventually we no longer have a freedom to our movement. This is what we term "Sensory Motor Amnesia" (SMA).
The effects of Sensory Motor Amnesia (SMA) happen gradually and are often confused with the signs of growing old. We begin to hold ourselves tightly in reaction to pain, injury, habituated postures or emotional stress. We can no longer move about freely because strong reflex messages from our brain cause muscles to be constantly contracted.
Because this event takes place in the central nervous system, we are not aware of it, yet it affects us to the very core. Everything about who we are, what we experience and what we can do, is profoundly diminished by SMA.
