Movement Therapies

The Alexander technique, Feldenkrais method, and Trager approach reeducate muscle movements to improve body flexibility, balance, coordination, and release of muscle tension. There is an increase in energy level and breathing becomes easier and deeper. Children move with great ease and grace but as adults, poor posture and incorrect movements eventually become natural habits. Meanwhile, the body is misaligned and muscles are tense and over-stretched. These unconscious habits can be reprogrammed and new messages relayed to the brain by practicing new patterns of movement that eventually become involuntary and automatic.

Movement therapies are especially effective for the prevention of illness, and their techniques have improved conditions such as stress, chronic pain, neuromuscular (nerve and muscle) and musculoskeletal disorders, and respiratory and digestive problems.
