Most people decide to look for an Alexander Technique Teacher because they already have some sort of pain or discomfort. Other people find the technique through performance: music, drama or dance.
Why Alexander Technique?
You may have tried other ways to treat your pain and found only temporary relief.
Alexander Technique teaches you to look for the possible causes of the pain.
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.
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 is a gentle technique that reduces unwanted physical and mental tension, allowing you the freedom to move with improved coordination and balance.
