About Alexander Technique

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.

Working with me, you will learn to recognise your usual reactions to the stresses of life. You will find out how you have been contributing to your problems, how to prevent them and regain control.

Alexander Technique lessons stimulate your ability to learn simultaneously on different levels; physically, intellectually and emotionally. You learn to recognise your harmful habits, how to stop and think, and to choose a better response. Gradually you learn to apply your new understanding and skill in everyday activities and more complex ones, to bring awareness and poise into everything you do. Just like riding a bike, once learned, the Technique stays with you for 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.
