The Franklin Method
The specialty of the Franklin method is the use of imagery. Imagery has a wide spectrum of application and has been proven in conjunction with physical practice to be the fastest avenue to affect change on a cortical level; which translates into how the nervous-system and body interact to produce movement. To use imagery successfully most athletes, dancers and teachers need training based on how exactly imagery works. It can be used systematically to aid performance, reduce anxiety, increase confidence, enhance endurance, and speed recovery from injury or heavy exercise.
