What is the Alexander Technique?

From the front cover of BMJ 337 (2008)

The Alexander Technique is a way of learning how to release long-standing habitual patterns of muscular tension that, over time, cause pain, discomfort or a general sense that we could be functioning better in our everyday lives.

 

Lessons in the Alexander Technique teach us how to 'undo' these patterns of tension by becoming aware of our habits. We learn how these habits are interfering with our natural state of ease, comfort and well-being. Once we become aware of them, we can choose whether to react in our habitual way to stimuli, which may have caused us pain or discomfort, or we can learn how to stop reacting in the old habitual way and choose to respond differently, which has profound and beneficial effects on all areas of our lives.

Is the Alexander Technique for me?

The Alexander Technique is a learned skill that can be of benefit to everyone and in all areas of life. Some of the benefits include:

  • Reduced back, neck and shoulder pain
  • Improved posture
  • Better management of stress and anxiety
  • A feeling of calm and centredness
  • Easier breathing
  • Improved confidence
  • Eased tension headaches
  • Improved co-ordination and balance
  • Relief from repetitive strain injury (RSI) and work related injuries
  • Improved performance for sports men and women, singers, musicians and performers, artists and writers
  • Improved comfort for pregnant women

 

People of all ages can benefit from learning and applying the Alexander Technique. The youngest person I have taught is 16 and the oldest is 93.

 

If it sounds like the Alexander Technique might help you, take a look at what happens in a typical lesson.

"97% of people with back pain could benefit by learning the Alexander Technique – it is only a very small minority of back pain sufferers that require medical intervention such as surgery."
