Abstract:

An exercise technique that uses simple, pain-free movements with light resistance provided by an assistant to correct structural imbalances in the body. Mechanization of our society has encouraged highly sedentary lives that increasingly make certain natural body movements strained and awkward. This lack of wholesome exercise often leads to imbalances in the structural integrity of the body that result in muscular tension, aches and pains, poor posture, and poor walking habits.

Sotai is a systematic form of exercise using active and passive exercises to correct such problems. Similar to kinesiology, it is a clear, methodical way to improve one's health. It does not involve any strenuous or uncomfortable movement but strives for pleasure and ease in movement to restore one's physical equilibrium. All exercises suggested require that one move in the direction of least discomfort. the key to their effectiveness lies in correct breathing and a natural balancing of one's weight while moving. This guide explains how anyone can learn to evaluate one's general physical condition. The goal is to see where one's body is out of alignment or distorted in proportion and to practice specific exercises to alleviate each disorder. The treatments are often immediately effective in reducing the effects of bodily stress [back cover.
