Alexander Technique can assist you to manage pain, understand your movement and posture and regain ease of movement.

Many people study Alexander Technique

People from all walks of life, all ages and all professions study Alexander Technique for improvement in posture, movement and comfort.

Poor posture can put pressure on your muscles, bones, blood vessels and nerves. This can lead to many kinds of aches and pains.

An Australian, FM Alexander (1869-1955) carried out experimentation with his movement over a period of many years. He was influenced by a number of people who were studying movement response in humans at the time especially Delsarte. Alexander made a number of discoveries about movement and human responses that were ahead of their time.

When you understand the discoveries that Alexander made about human posture and movement you will never move the same way again. Instead you will learn how to re-introduce ease, coordination and uprightness into all your activities. It's quite extraordinary how wrong our society has gotten movement and posture. Our sedentary lifestyle has led to increased sluping, crushing and gripping postures that  slow us down, hurt us and stop us from moving with our natural easiness.

Alexander Technique takes some time to learn-just like learning any skill-but it's interesting, inspiring amazing learning unlike anything else that you've studied. If you were studying cooking-you'd do a course of lessons. Music-many lessons. Alexander, well of course you will need more than one lesson. The good news is lessons are relatively inexpensive and are subsidised by many private health funds.

In England, a recent randomised control study sponsored by the British Medical Journal found that chronic pain sufferers started experiencing reduction in their pain symptoms after only six lessons. After twenty four lessons chronic back pain sufferers reported up to 86% less pain days than before they started-one year after they stopped taking lessons!

Alexander Technique is a new approach to being well. It's not a therapy; it's learning. You learn it and improve and improve and improve. Isn't it worth trying a completely drug and surgery free method for reducing pain levels, regaining mobility and uprightness? To find out more about lessons click here
