What is Somatology?

somatology in Cape Town

Somatology is defined as the study or science, of the human body (coming from the Greek roots meaning “body” and “study”). This also includes the study of material substances, as in physics, chemistry, biology, botany which are under the general heading of physicalism.

This term is used in a number of different ways to describe a variety of activities related to studying the body. In one sense, somatology is the study of the body in the sense of anatomy and physiology, to learn about how the parts of the body work together. People who work in this area of somatology study a variety of topics related to the body and how it functions, such as pathology, studying what happens when the body is injured or diseased, and they may also be interested in topics like biomechanics, studying the movement and articulation of the body. Training in this field can also be applied to the practice of physical therapy and many other health and wellness related professions.

Some practitioners of alternative medicine may also refer to what they do as somatology. In this sense, the term is used to refer to the study and treatment of the body as a whole (holistic therapy), with the application of techniques such as massage, herbal medicine, acupuncture, guided imagery, and so forth to patients and clients. Some people in this branch of the field may focus on providing people with sources of relaxation, with some spas and massage studios referencing somatology in their promotional materials.
