Chronic Pain

In addition to studies exclusively involving people with chronic back or neck pain, several studies have assessed the effect of Alexander lessons for people with generalised chronic pain.

1. Evaluation of the effect of Alexander lessons in a pain clinic setting

Two other studies have been published that include Alexander Technique instruction for people with generalised chronic pain as part of a multidisciplinary approach:

2. Early Experiences of a Multidisciplinary Pain Management Programme

3. Multidisciplinary approach to chronic back pain: prognostic elements of the outcome

The Alexander Technique makes me feel more comfortable, poised and peaceful. I started lessons years ago and have kept them up because I love the body awareness they teach. The Technique helps me to let go of tension and feel better, not just during lessons, but always.
