Regain freedom and poise in your movement
The Alexander Technique is a method that works to help you identify and change unhelpful habits of movement and thought in your everyday life, which may be bringing you pain and discomfort. It is not a treatment which aims to have a therapist 'fix you', its a way of re-educating how you think and move to operate in a more efficient and co-ordinated manner.
Many people come to the Alexander Technique because of pain (backache, sore necks, shoulders, carpel tunnel etc), whilst others because they want to improve their performance in sport, acting or playing music. Using your body well has practical applications in all areas of life.
Having lessons in the Alexander Technique have been proven to reduce days with back pain by an average of 86% in patients with both chronic and recurrent back pain, even a year after lessons have been completed, according to a major study published in the British Medical Journal (click here).
