Alexander Technique

Have you ever thought of what part of your body is touching a chair when you are sitting?

Well it all depends on who you are and how you sit, are you a sloucher, do you sit up erect or something in the middle?

If you are a sloucher, then you probably didn’t listen to your seniors to sit up straight, if you sit up straight then you probably did. 

The thing is either of these two positions can cause pain and discomfort in the long run and sooner for some. So what can we do to manage the pain, pain killers, surgery, physio? You can try all theses things but have you thought it could be something that you are doing? 

Could slouching or sitting straight have something to do with your pain? Is there a point between slouching and sitting straight that’s pain free. There is sort of but not at all.

Time to explain, when you are either slouching or being straight you are straining some muscles and not using some muscles. 

Wouldn’t it be better if you are just using your muscles appropriately!

First you need to know where you are, I wrote earlier about where your head neck joint is, please read BONEY HOLLOW to refresh your thoughts about you head neck joint.

So what are you sitting on?
