Andrew's method starts with the underlying principle that the body functions as a tension network; like a pulley system. In application, this means that "tight" muscles can only exist when another muscle simultaneously begins under-working; becoming "stretched," or vice versa.
Through proper assessment, and the application of functional kinesiology, his method allows us to unravel the mysteries of these tension relationships.
Techniques that result in releasing, or contracting, specific muscles will be employed based on the outcomes of assessment. The goal is to restore the functional relationship between muscular dysfunctions. This may be experienced as an increase in body awareness, a greater sense of physical ability, and a lightness of being.
