Three powerful ideas to release tension in your arms and hands

Do your arms and hands get too tight, stiff, tired, or even numb and tingly when you make music or do your art? In this video, I share three simple, powerful ideas from the Alexander Technique to help you use your arms and hands effortlessly, even while doing something difficult like playing music.

1) "Whole body arms"

2) Whole hand/open wrist/sensing

3) Use less grip strength

At the end of the video, I share how using your arms and hands more effortlessly is important not just for your well-being and the sustainability of your artistic career, but to help tap into and release your Soulforce, your vital creative energy.
