ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE

Make adjustments in your habitual behaviour

In everyday life we in general do not consider how we move. We sit in front of TV, computer, in meetings, use the telephone, are active in sport, lift up and carry.....Usually we do not pay attention how we use ourselves while we execute these activities. As a result, we waste every day a lot of energy and create undesired tensions. Which often lead to mental and physical overload and all kinds of aches and pain.

By using the alexander technique, we are capable to consciously control our everyday actions which helps to avoid over tension. Lots of aches and pain can be prevented.

Why Alexander Technique?

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” - Viktor E. Frankl

After our brain receives a stimulus to execute an action, for example to get up from the chair, our whole body prepares immediately a movement-pattern. This movement-pattern is based on experiences and habits which the brain received during its life.

By observing himself F.M. Alexander discovered that from the moment of receiving a stimulus until the actual execution of the action (such as getting up from the chair) 0.2 - 0.5 seconds pass.

The alexander technique uses this time to stop the subconscious, uncontrolled action in order to execute the same action in a conscious and thereby controlled manner.

We learn to change undesired, harmful habits through conscious control.
