Chi swimming, Total Immersion it all is based on (as mentioned earlier) utilizing the body and water connection. If head is in proper position and body allowed freedom to rotate, your arm length: will improve, and the amount of time you have to breath and relax in your glide will improve. Just make sure you allow your hips/legs the freedom of rotation to be on the side fully, and your kick will be parallel with the water, allowing for a wider, symmetrical sweep=balance.
Doc Counsilman, is like our grandfather of swimming and in australia it's Forbes Carlile, both of these gentlemen spent their life helping us understand the 'Science of Swimming.' (Name of Counsilman's book).
Terry's Total Immersion is based on these principles and further study.
Hope that helps.
