When a young child picks up something, they will instinctively bend at the hips, knees and ankles, however as adults we will often fix these joints and tend to bend from the waist. This puts substantial strain on our muscles and joints, which is worsened by our sedentary lives, thus leading to generally poor use and activation of our postural muscles.
The Alexander teacher will help you identify your proven pain producing traits and will pro-actively facilitate the coordination, function and mobility of joints and lengthening of the spine, thus reducing spasm and pain.
Practising the Technique involves using inhibition to over-ride the anticipatory pre-emptive response that we usually have when presented with any stimulus.
Through a light touch and verbal suggestions the teacher guides the pupil to recognise how to restore a better overall balance.
The Alexander Technique is an educational method rather than a therapy (although most people find their lessons very therapeutic, as relaxing as a massage and you are learning something) and is taught on a one-to-one basis.
Alexander Technique can help with the following:
The Technique results in a general feeling of lightness and well-being.
The idea is that you take away from the very first lesson tools to use which will help you with your individual area of difficulty.
A typical lesson lasts for 30-45 minutes. All you have to do is wear loose comfortable clothing and be prepared to take your shoes off. You are never too old to begin!
