BRIEF SUMMARY

A multidisciplinary pain management programme was assessed in people living with chronic pain. Thirty four people with various types of chronic pain participated in the study. The programme consisted of educational lectures and/or group discussions with nurses, physiotherapists and psychologists, auto-hypnosis and relaxation, personal exercise training, and Alexander Technique sessions. The study reported that the Alexander Technique sessions were consistently rated by the participants as the most useful component of the programme.

Help with pain

I have been taking lessons for a few years now. Right from the first lesson my chronic back pain improved and I was moving more smoothly. After a lesson I always feel lighter, more positive and more confident. The Alexander Technique has helped me to realise that I have a choice about how I use my body. This awareness has spread to other areas of my life and I now feel more in control of myself and my life.
