How to Reprogram Conscious Thinking 

using the Alexander Technique.

how to beat fibromyalgia and chornic fatigue syndrome


Alexanders approach is to reprogram consciousness and allow both children and adults free choice in the way they live their lives.


Alexander correctly states:


As individuals it is up to us to decide how and to what extent we experience the stress in our everyday lives.

We can choose to go about our daily lives in the same manner as everyone else, how we sit, stand, the way we work, how we eat, how we sleep how we operate our computers and other gadgets etc. Or we can choose our own methods for carrying out all these activities.

We can allow the build up of stress and tension in our back through our shoulders and neck and up into the head. All recognized factors in the onset and development of modern diseases such as Fibromyalgia and CFS.

Or we can choose to release and let go. Where we identify spontaneous consistent reaction we can choose to use inhibition to prevent the events from happening and we can learn the art of release and letting go.


Most of Alexanders techniques focus on 5 direct orders to the body.


What you will be aiming to achieve from the Alexander technique is the smooth use of the body incorporating efficient muscular movement. The process that one must apply to achieve this is primarily a mental process.


As an example give yourself the order – "stand up straight"!


What happens to your posture? You immediately pull your shoulders right back and force the spine into an unnatural tight backbend. Try holding this position for more than a couple of minutes. Do you see how uncomfortable it is?


Alexander became aware of this while training to be an actor and over several years he developed a series of 4 vital rules that allowed students of his technique to achieve correct, sustainable postural improvement.


Over a period of time adhering to these rules results in reduced stress and tension in the neck and shoulder areas, lengthening and broadening of the back and reduced tension in the hip and sacral areas.



Here are the first 4 vital rules that Alexander devised: Note the common thread through all the rules.


1:  Release the head on top of the neck so that it balances easily in a forward and up position.


2: Release the thorax of your body so that it expands into length and width.


3: Release the legs away from the hips and sacrum.


4: Release the shoulders away from your sides.


Fibromyalgia sufferers often refer to trigger point attacks and can even be diagnosed due to the predictable nature of these attacks.  Reducing these trigger points involves identifying and breaking the cycles of tension that build up in Fibromyalgia sufferers.


This is where we must attempt to "release" this tension. The tension which holds skeletal muscles out of position can worsen to affect ligaments, tendons and damage the joints themselves.
