Most people decide to look for an Alexander Technique Teacher because they already have some sort of back pain, hip pain or other discomfort. Other people find the technique through performance: music, drama or dance. Many are concerned about their posture.
Why Alexander Technique?
You may have caught sight of yourself and thought is that really me, what bad posture!
We look at postural habits that may have developed over years of misuse and are harmful and causing you discomfort.
We look at replacing those habitual postural patterns with new considered habits therefore alleviating your pain and preventing recurrence.
You may have tried other ways to treat back pain or neck/hip pain and found only temporary relief.
Alexander Technique teaches you to look for the possible causes of the pain.
Alexander Technique can also be a way to prevent aches and pains that we sometimes think are an inevitable part of life.
The technique can also aid rehabilitation after illness or injury.
The technique not only helps reduce pain.
It can teach you to look after yourself, to make those choices to change.
It teaches observation of alignment helping with poor posture.
It is a gentle technique that reduces unwanted physical and mental tension, allowing you the freedom to move with improved coordination and balance.
It allows you to think about your body as a system, integrating physical, mental and emotional aspects.
Alexander Technique teaches the possibility for inner quiet and a calmer state of mind, allowing you to take charge.
