"Lock In" ist eine Technik der Somatic Education nach Thomas Hanna.

Martha Peterson, Carrie Day, https://essentialsomatics.com/hanna-somatics-articles-case-studies/somatics-science

Lock In is done after Quick Release, as the student actively contracts in the opposite direction taking the '''antagonist into a full contraction''' to allow the focus muscle to completely '''let go and release'''. This step helps to maintain muscle tone and is also known as '''reciprocal inhibition'''. This process of assisted Pandiculation and Lock In allows the nervous system to reset and quite effectively corrects habituated patterns in the body, whether they have been held for days or years. The mechanism by which they have become learned and subsequently corrected is the same no matter the length of time that has passed.
