When a child picks up a toy, they will bend at the hips, knees and ankles; as adults we tend to fix these joints and bend from the waist. This puts enormous strain on our muscles and joints, whilst our sedentary lives lead to poor activation of postural muscles.
The teacher recognises proven pain-producing behaviour and facilitates coordination, functioning and mobility of joints and lengthening of the spine, thus reducing spasm and pain.
Practicing 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!
