How Does the Alexander Technique Work?
Alexander discovered that when the head is balanced freely on top of the spine, the spine is then allowed to lengthen naturally. This optimal relationship of the head, neck, and back has a positive influence on the whole body, organizing and coordinating our body systems and our movements. Excess tension, especially in the area of the head and neck, blocks important information from being received by our kinesthetic (movement) receptors, so we may overuse some muscles and underuse others. When we let go of unnecessary tension, our postural reflexes are free to operate and the “primary control” is enhanced.
The Alexander Technique teaches you to go beyond “good posture” and “body mechanics,” it will empower you to make positive, lifelong changes!
