The Benefits

The Alexander Technique is most widely known for reducing or eliminating muscle and joint pain, back/shoulder pain and head/neck pain.

It is also likely to improve the way you walk, sit, stand, run, swim, and do every kind of performance.

You are likely to feel calmer and to gain more choices over your habitual responses to the daily demands of life.

Better posture has been also shown to improve the functioning of your internal organs, such as lungs, by relieving pressure from unnecessary muscle tension.

Large numbers of people have benefited from the Alexander technique; in particular they come for lessons because of:

  • Bad posture
  • Pain in the back, neck or shoulders
  • Stress and insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Recovery after surgery or injury
  • Control of pain
  • Breathing problems
  • Repetitive strain injury
  • Managing the effects of neurological illnesses such as Parkinson’s

The Alexander Technique is also widely used by people who perform professionally: singers, actors, musicians, and sports people.
