Stress

When you are under stress the Alexander Technique can provide effective relief.

Too much pressure can make you ill; work, relationships, money troubles, commuting, health problems, exams, job interviews, can all have a combined effect on the body and mind.

To effectively combat stress, we need to address the physical, mental and emotional causes. The Alexander Technique helps us to control the way we respond to life and to return to a balanced state of body and mind.

Feeling grounded, mindful and calm will help you manage any stressful event, such as an interview, audition or exam, with more confidence and control.

Learning to manage stress with the Alexander Technique will also:

  • improve breathing
  • promote general relaxation
  • enhance mental clarity
  • help you avoid feeling overwhelmed
  • improve sleep
  • help you manage anger
  • reduce nervousness
  • prevent unduly excited fear responses

 

I was looking for some way to help manage my lower back problems without relying on pain relief medication. I have found my one-to-one AT sessions extremely helpful and have learnt to identify and avoid postures and actions that contribute to back pain. I now know how to relax and properly rest my back and neck. In my experience, AT is a whole body technique which can help one to be more self-aware and to understand how to move with less tension and consequently, with less effort. Hurray for AT!
