In lessons I discovered very quickly the benefits to my persistent back pain following a nasty whiplash. I had heard that the Alexander technique can improve discomfort and pain greatly by retraining one's posture, but from the first lesson I discovered that there was also a lot of mental training that has been of huge benefit in the way I have viewed life since.
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.
