Using the Alexander Technique as a model from which to understand and guide the human musculo-skeletal it becomes clear that certain parts of the body will tense up and malfunction.

Directions (or orders) are mental instructions to specific muscles to release from tension and soften and lengthen. The user literally directs the body how it should behave in terms of muscle tone and the direction muscles must encourage the body, as a whole, to travel, namely upwards towards the heavens.
