If you have aches, pains, stiffness, poor posture or shallow breathing, you could benefit by learning to use the Alexander Technique in your day to day life. It’s a holistic approach and is gentle, yet powerful. There’s more to it than meets the eye.
Head, Neck, Back
The Alexander Technique involves thinking about activity in an intelligent way. It shows how we ‘wear our head’. We look at the relationship between the head, neck and back. It is this relationship that organises balance. This helps reduce tension and gives us more control.
Causes, not just symptoms
We will work to discover the cause of your issues rather than just the symptoms. You will learn to build up new muscle memory to consistently overcome the old habits that are causing your issues. And you will find out how to make yourself more comfortable, balanced and strong, both physically and mentally. It’s both strengthening and relaxing, using thought and self awareness.
Back Pain Research
Research shows that the Alexander Technique improves chronic low back pain. And that the improvement after a course of lessons has long lasting effects.
If you want to improve your posture, studies show that the Alexander Technique leads to better posture, movement coordination and balance. The added benefit is that better posture may also help with pain.
