Back in the 80's & 90's Edward was living with fibromyalgia which is chronic body wide pain. He knew there "has to be a way out".
After trying scores of both medical and alternative treatments, he learned how could be pain free after learning about a system of exercises which corrected compensations.
Unfortunately, he also tore his knee meniscus later on and was able to avoid surgery when he his world view of exercise turned completely upside down.
He learned that healthy animals never stretch. This challenged what he knew. He discovered in fact; contrary to popular belief, animals are doing something else and this "animal secret" may be the ticket to allowing us to move comfortably for life.
Move Like an Animal is full of simple movement patterns known as somatics exercises where you use your brain and body and get back to feelings of pleasure, relaxation and extraordinary comfort. If you're looking for a natural method which restores your birthright to move well and feel comfortable for life, Move Like an Animal is for you.
Edward Barrera is the author of Move Like an Animal: Feel Comfortable, Be Flexible, Move Well for Life in 3 Simple Steps. He is a nationally certified Hanna Somatic Educator, Holistic Health Advisor and Corporate Wellness Coach.
This book really surprised me. I thought that it might have some complicated excercises, but it was refreshingly simple and helpful. I tried it and it was amazing. I have used an exercise similar to this in my morning crunches, but did not have nearly this effect. It helped me relax so well that the first time I tried it, I felt my lower back start popping as my muscles relaxed. I was not even trying to do that. I am going to make this a regular part of my day. Pictures are very helpful when learning a new exercise and these really made it plain. The title, Move Like An Animal, really does make sense to me now. I want to be able to move like that from now on.- Cyntia Carr, Amazon Verified Purchase
As a therapist for 17 years I have worked with thousands of people to help them reduce their pain, increase their range, and restore strength. This is written with the lay person in mind but it is helping me find solutions along with the many techniques I use as an Occupational Therapist and Registered Functional Therapist. There are many techniques that therapists draw on to help patients heal. This is an excellent system to add to those. The exercises are very easy and you often will have instant improvement. I think it may take you in new directions as you return to your fully functional life.
I used the technique on myself to recover from a strained hamstring and I've used it with many patients with body and limb pain.- E. Kaine, Occupational Therapist and Registered Functional Therapist
This book 'Move Like An Animal' has been a Godsend for me, I am using it for my Fibromyalgia symptoms. The author Ed Barrera has put together a very easy to follow presentation that has illustrated for me how to simply and effectively use somatic exercises to regain my natural vitality and to return to a level of mobility I had not seen for years. I regard this book as revolutionary, it has showed me how so many of my symptoms that I believed I must just learn to live with such as backache, stiff muscles, chronic pain, fatigue etc, are not just simply inevitable. So much of my suffering has now been eased and a lot of it eradicated simply by me learning how to have the conscious control over my nerves and muscles just as Ed in his book is advocating. With only a few minutes everyday doing the exercises from this book I have been able to rekindle the movement, vitality and comfort of my youth. I have already recommended this book to most of my friends and will continue to do so.- Joanne, Using this for Fibromyalgia
