The Alexander Technique

Improve your posture and movement, and reduce and prevent problems caused by unhelpful habits

The Alexander Technique is a skill that may be learned to improve movement, coordination, and posture. You learn to take care of yourself in every activity.

It can help to:

  • Relieve and prevent back, neck and limb pain, headaches and other muscular-skeletal problem
  • Reduce tension in activities that are repetitive and/or strenuous such as bending, lifting, or typing
  • Improve performance in skilled activities such as dance, music, acting, or sport
  • Manage stress, improve well being and self understanding
  • Restore freedom of movement after an accident or chronic illness

Our bodies are brilliantly designed, many of our problems from depression, to back pain, to voice loss, occur because we don’t allow our bodies to function in the way they were designed. The process of not interfering with the natural way you use your voice, walk, dance, play a musical instrument etc, is a skill that can be learned through the Alexander Technique.

Tension in our bodies be it physical or mental, requires more energy to move. If you use more muscular effort than is necessary, the effect is to often stiff joints, undue fatigue and even pain.

The Alexander Technique is a means of eliminating unnecessary tension while learning to move in an easier more effective way.
