The Movement Intelligence of Upright Posture
and Empowered Stability
Re-Designing Alignment by Self-Touch of Hand
The winning Combination of the Integrative Approach
One of the strategies used in the Posture program is to show people they can use their own hands in order for their organism to arrive at a new postural option, which their body is not likely to create without the indication of the hand touch. The hand can easily help in introducing a mechanical change in re-organizing of a certain part, enabling to hold the new change while performing actual total body movement in the new coordination.
Like one hand is gently holding the chin closer to the throat, with the pinky might be touching the collar bone and the wrist touching the chest, which aligns the head in more streamlined continuity with the spine, and the neck become straighter, while at the same time performing walking in place. This combination of suggesting a local change in the structural context of the neck, while synchronized it with total body activity of symbolic walking pattern, which is inherently programmed for efficient coordination, is allowing all other parts of the body to adjust and support the specific change in the neck's alignment and the disposition of the head, giving it the validation to be harmoniously integrated by the entire organism for use. The invitation of all parts of the body, as involved in the basic function of walking, to actively adjust to the corrected neck, guarantees that every part of the body will go through re-learning how to adapt its habitual behavior to the newly introduced change.
Respecting this "Family Therapy" principle for creating an acceptable improvement, is in distinct from an artificially imposed isolated, local correction in static position.
After such a process of a few Min. people may verify the feeling of spontaneously standing in a more satisfying posture. Creating a better position is not enough. For your organism to choose to use it in life it needs to be convinced that the new pattern can be easily and safely used in reality of movement.
The combinatory approach of suggesting a local change in an isolated part of the body, while synchronizing it with total body activity of walking in place, is allowing all other parts of the body to adjust and support the specific change and giving it the validation to be harmoniously accepted by the total organism for use.
Respecting this "Family Therapy" principle of inviting all members to reprogram their behavior, rather than expecting just the suffering victim to do what it cannot do, has the chance to create an acceptable improvement. The change which is originated through cooperation is in distinct from an artificially imposed isolated, local correction in static position.
After a few min of such a process of the winning combination of both local change within global adjustment people may verify the transformed feeling of spontaneously standing in a more satisfying posture.
The organic improvement feels surprising and is coming from inside on its own, from the sensational domain of your organism, the core of your existence, bypassing your cognitive calculation, as the result of experiencing new options, provided in a way it could engage your innate non-verbal Movement intelligence to somatically learn and change its policy of self management.
