I can come to your office and give a short presentation on posture and back pain. My presentation is specifically designed for laptop, mobile phone and computer users, but I also cover how you can use the technique in everyday life, chopping vegetables, yoga, running and loading the dishwasher!
We look at better postural habits and breathing techniques. This can help reduce work stress, induced by long hours trying to meet deadlines. It can increase productivity, help you feel more confident and focused with clearer, more constructive thinking and improved decision making.
The Alexander Technique teaches you how to notice damaging postural habits and helps prevent problems that occur due to repetition of those habits.
Introduce wellbeing into your office, looking after you and your staff.
Victorinox the Swiss Army knife manufacturer brought the Alexander Technique into their workplace in 2002, employing 4 Alexander teachers, and absenteeism from sickness and workplace injuries reduced by 30% within 5 years which they directly attribute to the Alexander Technique.
Is it possible to look at your phone/laptop without bringing your head out of balance? The answer is yes. Mobile phones, laptops and screen based technology are here to stay and are fantastic, but we need to learn how to use them so that they don’t damage us either physically or mentally.
The Alexander Technique can help you if :
You are concerned about bad posture.
You have frequent back pain or stiff neck and shoulders.
You suffer from repetitive strain injury or carpal tunnel syndrome.
You become uncomfortable when sitting at your computer for long periods of time.
I am also a DSE (Display Screen Equipment) Assessor – Chartered Institute of Ergonomics & Human Factors.
