Dancer’s Wisdom

The wisdom of Alexander Technique
Find the connection to one zone on the spine between the wings.
Let the connection lift you.
Think no more about rising and balancing.
Simply connect.

The dancer’s wisdom
Discover a connection of muscle of bone of body of move.
Place a discovery within a personal network all connected, already in tact.
Think no more about missing a skill, a lift, a leap.
Connect one part of the network to activate the whole.

The dancer’s wisdom shared by travelers in the many worlds of meditation and prayer.
Taste the delight of the coming movement within and without.
Enter the delight with full attention.
Exhale a thank you to ourselves, to those who share our journey, and to all of life that I do not yet know.

Dancer to Massage

Why do I go to a massage therapist?

A massage therapist asks the same questions as a dancer.
How can I free up the body to move freely?
How is an area of concern connected to other parts of the body?

Other questions I ask for myself.
How can I find ways for the body to work together better?
Can I follow the path of a pain or a weakness through my muscles to discover a support network?

What do I do after the session?
Stand for a moment.
Take a few steps.
Gather my thoughts and ask the therapist any questions that come to mind.

What do I do after I leave the session?
Stand or lay down to feel the connections made.
Take a short walk to test out what moves more freely and how to support the new changes.
Plan a series of movements or experiments to use daily.

How do I use the information from the session?
Test out sending energy or signals through the concerned areas.
Test out sending signals between the support areas I have identified.
Plan a series of movements or experiments to use daily.

Why do I go to a chiropractor?

The chiropractor asks the same questions as the dancer.
How can I free up specific areas so energy can move through every part of my body?

What areas are connected and supporting my area of concern?
How can I move that area on my own to increase the support of my entire body?
