The Azambuja Method incorporates the research and practical work of French physical therapist Françoise Mezieres
and Elsa Gindler, the founder of the
Physical ReEducation Movement in Germany in the 1930s. Their work has been widely accepted in Europe, Canada and
The Azambuja Method is also in harmony with the concepts of French physical therapist
Thereze Bertherat, author of The Body Has Its Reasons.
Using foam and rubber balls, global stretching postural poses and manipulations, The Azambuja Method helps the body
relax excessively tense muscles and strengthen weaker muscles.
Acting as a single muscle, the back chain of muscles – muscles that run from the top of the head to the bottom of the feet – constantly shrinks and needs to be elongated. Repeated relaxation of the back chain restores the body to its proper alignment, relieving pain and stress. If the body is tense, in chronic pain and/or physically misaligned, it is almost impossible for the mind to relax.
By releasing and redistributing the body’s muscular tension, the
body moves toward a “pain-free alignment” and the mind experiences a sense of well-being. Body awareness, muscle relaxation, breath work and conscious movement help the body maintain its psycho/physical balance.
