The Alexander Technique
This is not a therapy but a learning process. Thankfully, its
not a book learning, its actually mind and body learning. With
the help of the Alexander teacher you learn how to improve your
breathing, balance, co-ordination and movement. You learn how
to release tension and stimulate a lengthening of your muscles.
This lets you move more freely and easily. It is a skill and learning
it can take a little time, remember when you first learned to
ride a bike and you had to learn to co-ordinate your legs, arms
and balance ? With practice, the Alexander Technique becomes part
of your and you wonder how you ever managed without it.
In a lesson the teacher uses their hands to guide your muscles
towards a state of ease and freedom. The touch is very gently,
you don’t need to undress and there is no manipulation.
Explanations are given to teach you to use yourself more freely
and easily. It’s not a massage all the teachers hands do
it influence you to work with what was you have told in the lesson
and integrate this into your life.
