Neck Pain

To date, two trials have been conducted to evaluate the outcome of Alexander lessons for people with chronic neck pain, a large randomised controlled clinical trial and a smaller study :

1. The large randomised controlled trial called ATLAS (Alexander Technique Lessons or Acupuncture Sessions for people with chronic neck pain). To date, two papers have been published on the results. Read about:

2. A much smaller trial assessing the effect of Alexander lessons for people with chronic neck pain.

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.
