About the Alexander Technique
The Alexander Technique teaches how the head, neck and back work together, and how the relationship between these parts of the body can go wrong.
The Technique teaches people to become keen observers of their own body, able to identify and undo points of tension.
Every day actions such as typing, cleaning or gardening can be performed with less muscular tension and pain.
Letting go of excessive and unnecessary tension allows the body to find a more natural and comfortable posture.
Working with the postural coordination of the whole person enables long term improvement to back and neck pain.
Students of the Technique learn to reduce and manage their own pain, improving quality of life, and limiting reliance on medical professionals.
