Critical Alignment Therapy

Since 1998 yoga has been used as a therapeutic form at the Critical Alignment Yoga institute to remedy physical complaints in special lessons.
The therapeutic applications of Critical Alignment have been developed by Gert van Leeuwen.

Critical Alignment Therapy sheds new light on complaints in the spinal column and related complaints. CAT is a method with a new form of anatomy that is based on bone connections that come about through relaxation. This creates a cohesion that uses so-called reflex forces, organized by posture muscles. The first principle of the method for chronic complaints is that stress and a wrong posture cause too much tension in the muscles of the shoulders, upper back and neck, or in other cases precisely in the lower back. This tension causes the skeleton to deform, causing nerves and blood vessels to get stuck and causing complaints. The second principle is that resolving complaints is based on collaboration: in addition to taking therapy lessons, you are asked to practice at home yourself. Patients learn to work on resolving or preventing their symptoms themselves.

After intake, the Critical Alignment exercises are used specifically to tackle the source of the complaints.
An intake takes 60 minutes, during which the diagnosis is made and it is explained what Critical Alignment Therapy (CAT) can mean for resolving the complaint.
Following the intake follows an introduction to one or two exercises.
