Other medical conditions

The Alexander Technique is a valuable resource when dealing with:

  • long term illness or disability
  • serious disease or injury
  • post-traumatic problems
  • panic attacks

It continues to help people in a variety of conditions, such as:

Back pain, osteoarthritis, neck pain, sciatica, headache, RSI, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, sport or other injuries, performance anxiety, some voice disorders.

The Technique can aid recovery after surgery or injury by teaching you to use your body in a more efficient and effortless way.

 

 

The Alexander Technique makes a real difference to my often tense and busy life. Its thoughtful approach has made me calmer, improved my concentration, and given me a clearer sense of my own well being. I am grateful for it.

It is a challenge to try to summarize the experience [of the Alexander Technique], as I find it (and it finds me) being the constant change, not there to be grasped. The most measureable is the sharpening of all the senses. My violinist ears react to the most subtle nuances in the sound and the experience is that of all the senses 'working' on the sound (and the means that are producing it), when I play. This has made possible the greater awareness in the moment present. [A musician] is only able to do something about the sound (the moment) that is being produced, nothing past nor nothing to come. With all that, of course, comes freedom. The breathing, the freedom of movement, the freshness, the spontaneity, the creativity, the joy of it all. Through the Alexander training I am becoming more whole: as a person, as an artist.
