Body Mapping

Derived from the Alexander Technique, body mapping is a tool used to evaluate, make corrections to, and refine one’s own internal body map. This technique combines kinesthetic awareness (connecting the mind and body in terms of interpreting the signals from one to the other) with proprioception (the awareness of the body in space). Like the Alexander Technique, it is best known in the world of performers—such as musicians and dancers—who use body mapping to help keep their bodies moving freely and pain free.
