"Do you have any thoughts on stomach aches?" I ask my Alexander Technique teacher today.
"When do you get them?" he asks.
"When I start worrying. I find myself clenching."
"Well, what would you say to a friend with this problem?"
"I don’t know."
"You’d say that you’re probably moving down when it happens, pushing your stomach down, playing a loop of worrying thoughts, and you’re probably tipping your head back. So the solution is to flow up. You’re too smart of a guy for this. You know this.
"Why do people throw up when under stress? Because they push down, they tip their head back, they catastrophize and the bile flows up."
