The Franklin Method

About the Method

The Franklin Method bases its’ core teaching on three simple things that we all share as humans: We relate to gravity in posture and movement. We breathe. And we use our brain to think and dream.

The Franklin Method addresses the body-mind continuum through the use of imagery in all its applications and the body is addressed by learning how it is designed to function.

The Franklin Method asks: Why does it make sense to be good at something you do all the time? The answer…You get better at what you do. Simply put, poor posture leads to worse posture and incorrect use of the body tends to lead to dysfunction and injury. Learning how we are actually designed to function, how bones/muscles/organs work together to function efficiently, and how the mind is always part of the context is at the forefront of every Franklin Method lesson.

Body posture and movement are imagery driven, and if the image doesn’t correspond to the way the body is designed, the result will be a steady decline in function. By contrast, the best way to improve function is to start with an image that corresponds to how the body is designed.

To activate the body/mind function, the Franklin Method uses Dynamic Imagery, Experiential Anatomy and Reconditioning Movement. Dynamic Imagery is a multi sensory and kinesthetic way of using the brain to affect movement and function. Experiential Anatomy helps give us a direct physical awareness of our body’s function and design. Reconditioning Movement integrates dynamic imagery with experiential anatomy to produce optimum function.

One of the greatest discoveries of the 21st century is the plasticity of the brain; that the lives we live shape the brain we develop. The Franklin Method is at the forefront of practical neuro-plasticity as it teaches us how to use our brain to improve the body’s function. It teaches us how to harness the transforming power of the mind. It all starts with the knowledge that we have the power to change. “We are not reinventing the wheel, we are simply connecting the spokes “” body/mind, posture, breath, health, imagery and motivation.” (Eric Franklin)
