Alexander Technique teaches people how to harness the body’s natural facility to integrate movement using a kind of mindfulness called ‘constructive thinking’. Moving in an integrated way is helpful for everyone but has special significance for people who suffer from chronic pain conditions, misalignment, gait and posture issues.
Trauma and Injury are ‘disruptors’
At times, trauma and injury can act as disruptors to the body’s easy and effective functioning. Once patterned, the “disruption” can become habitual and ongoing. This makes improvement difficult. Even with the application of the most skilful and well-meaning exercises or manipulations, benefits will be disrupted by a long-held internal habit of interference. Your body will continually reset to the poor movement response.
A unique mindful approach to improvement
Alexander Technique teaches a unique kind of self-regulation using “constructive thinking”. You are taught skills to prevent the disruption of the body’s integration and to allow for an easy re-set of the body’s natural movement mechanisms.
After some practice, coordinated thought and movement can be called up, on command. This can carry a range of benefits that can influence wellness.
Alexander Technique has been taught to many thousands of people around the world over a period of more than one hundred years. It provides a safe and informative way to understand self-regulation and the path to effective and efficient movement.
