NICE Guidelines on Alexander Technique and Parkinson's

Some fantastic news about NICE guidelines for people with Parkinson's!

The updated NICE guidelines for the management of people with Parkinson's disease were due to be released in April this year but were delayed due to a legal challenge regarding a pharmaceutical product. In the draft version of this latest update, NICE had removed the existing and long-standing recommendation for Alexander lessons as an option for people with Parkinson's to help them make lifestyle adjustments.

Learn the Alexander Technique for optimum balance, posture and co-ordination in everything you do. Organise yourself with maximum efficiency to optimise performance in your work and everyday life, and in coping with stress and physical problems.

Give yourself a powerful tool for personal development, self-awareness, mindfulness and learning new skills.

Change the habits that contribute towards functional problems such as back pain, muscle tension and stiffness, poor posture and breathing problems.

Discover the freedom to change conditions that stop you reaching your potential and enjoying a happy, healthy life.

All Friends of the Alexander Technique, plus families and friends of friends are welcome to an open air picnic on Sunday the 9th of July 2017 from 1.00pm till late.

It is a challenge to try to summarize the experience [of the Alexander Technique], as I find it (and it finds me) being the constant change, not there to be grasped. The most measureable is the sharpening of all the senses. My violinist ears react to the most subtle nuances in the sound and the experience is that of all the senses 'working' on the sound (and the means that are producing it), when I play. This has made possible the greater awareness in the moment present.
