Other medical conditions

The Alexander Technique is a valuable resource when dealing with:

  • long term illness or disability
  • serious disease or injury
  • post-traumatic problems
  • panic attacks

It continues to help people in a variety of conditions, such as:

Back pain, osteoarthritis, neck pain, sciatica, headache, RSI, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, sport or other injuries, performance anxiety, some voice disorders.

The Technique can aid recovery after surgery or injury by teaching you to use your body in a more efficient and effortless way.

 

 

The Alexander Technique makes a real difference to my often tense and busy life. Its thoughtful approach has made me calmer, improved my concentration, and given me a clearer sense of my own well being. I am grateful for it.

I started the Alexander Technique due to slight scoliosis and a stretched nerve in my left lower back and I thought it would improve my posture which could only help my injury! I've got far more out of the technique than just improved posture! The first thing that I've learned is how to work with my Alexander Technique teacher and my body to control the pain! When the horrible muscle spasms start, I can now use breathing to help instead of lying on the floor helpless. Instead of focusing on what I can't do or do incorrectly, my teacher has helped me to understand what I do right and to do things that I didn't think that I could do. I found out that I have model hips rather than a twisted spine and that I can sit on an exercise ball without falling over! In short, the technique has made a huge difference to my life. I would recommend it to everyone and strongly believe that it should be on the NHS!
