Disclaimer

Interpretation

In this disclaimer, the words ”we” or ”us” or ”STAT” refer to the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique.

The Scope of Alexander Technique Teaching

The Alexander Technique is a discipline in the ”use” of the self.  STAT teachers aim to help pupils/students learn to improve their ”use”. 

The Alexander Technique is not a medical intervention. It does not aim to cure medical conditions.  Alexander Technique Teachers are not trained in medicine and do not offer medical diagnosis or treatment or therapy. Any improvements in medical conditions and general health and well-being associated with learning the Alexander Technique can be considered by-products of an improved use of the self and such beneficial outcomes, though frequently reported, are not guaranteed to occur.

STAT and STAT Teaching Members

STAT is a professional association. STAT makes reasonable endeavours to ensure that its teaching members are competent and are aware of their professional and legal responsibilities.  But STAT Members are not employed by STAT and STAT cannot be held directly responsible for their conduct or competence.  Our responsibilty lies in taking appropriate disciplinary action should we become aware that a teaching member has fallen below the applicable standard.  If you think you have encountered malpractice by one of our Members you should contact us.

Alexander Technique came into my life around the same time that I was diagnosed with scoliosis. However, through Alexander Technique I am able to manage my back pain and use my body more efficiently! At the end of a lesson I feel grounded but floating on air. I cannot thank my Alexander Technique teachers enough for the wisdom and health they have given me.
