Suppressing Emotion With Muscle Tension

Luke Ford writesAdam Bailey has a a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. He’s also a teacher of Alexander Technique.

In an interview with Robert Rickover, Adam says: “The Alexander Technique involves a learning process. When someone comes to see me, we refer to him a student and I am the teacher. I teach the student a set of skills he can apply in all of his activities and that he can develop on his own. The skills have to do with releasing unnecessary muscle tension that have built up over the years and improving the alignment of the head, neck and back.

“The beauty of the Alexander Technique is that it does not involve treatment. Once the student has learned the skills, he can apply them on his own.”

Robert: “How does an educational method that helps people how they function on a physical level relate to psychological growth?”
