Tip 3. Develop sciatica self-regulation and resilience with Alexander Technique.

Our third tip is simple to achieve. Start developing sciatica sekf-regulation and resilience with Alexander Technique by taking regular Alexander Technique lessons, now. If you are serious about getting over back and neck pain, sciatica or limb pain; it’s time to invest in learning. Alexander Technique is not just any kind of learning. It teaches you about your body’s natural design, self-regulation and resilience.

You may have an injury, age related lower back or neck pain, sciatica. You may be having chiropractic or physiotherapy. You might also be taking medication for pain. None of these situations rule out the benefits of learning about your body’s natural design for movement.

Most approaches to solving lower back and neck pain emphasise that you have to do things; exercises, stretches. Alexander Technique is teaching based on self-organisation. We teach you how to prevent continual obstruction of the body’s self-organisation; how to undo things. This leads to new ways of moving, lifting, carrying and bending that take strain off from your body and its movement.

Movement is a complex adaptive system that is always looking for a dynamic balancing. When you fix or hold that system with inappropriate muscle tension, it goes out of balance. This can lead you to significant and ongoing systemic problems.

self-regulation and resilience

Alexander Technique is unique, in that addresses back and neck pain as a systemic issue. It teaches self-regulation and resilience through increasing awareness. Your body is a self-organising system. It rebalances itself, if allowed. Alexander Technique develops your constructive thinking which is an important component of self-organisation.

“Self-organization produces heterogeneity and unpredictability. It is likely to come up with whole new structures, whole new ways of doing things. It requires freedom and experimentation, and a certain amount of disorder.”

Meadows, Donella H.. Thinking in Systems (pp. 79-80). Chelsea Green Publishing.

You are taught to moderate your movement with thinking in activity. This allows your body to self-organise with less tension, effort and impedence. Movement seems lighter, easier and less tense.

Your Alexander Technique teacher is highly trained to assist you to develop movement experiences that are liberating, restorative and self-managed.

Alexander Technique is not the usual approach. No other learning is like Alexander Technique. It requires you to think, to learn and to apply your intelligence to your activities.

If you are sufferring chronic back, neck or limb pain that requirement is a small price to pay to regain control in your life.

Alexander lessons are modestly priced and can be taken individually or in a group. Procrastination will not assist your back or neck  pain. Alexander Technique will.
