Growing old

Many people begin learning the Alexander Technique later in life, and it’s never too late to start living more skilfully.  In fact, as you age, you may appreciate the benefits more.

Common problems associated with ageing are minimised when you apply the Technique. For example stiffness, pain, immobility, problems with balance and general health. The Technique gives you a choice to stay healthy, active and keep enjoying life.

Even progressive conditions like Parkinson’s Disease or osteo-arthritis can be better managed by applying Alexander skills.

Like any skill, the more you practice Alexander Technique, the better you get, and it will help you prevent health and functional problems as the years go by.

Alexander Technique lessons are a great insurance policy for a healthy, happy old age!

When I recommend AT to a friend I always say I prefer paying for a lesson than making a pension contribution. AT is an investment so that I will be able to enjoy my retirement to the full. If only the chancellor would give me the tax relief!

Part-time worker, 47

I'm a 40 year old man who works as a support worker. I was suffering from sciatic pain for a few years. I had tried many methods to alleviate the pain, including various exercises, but these only brought short-term relief. One day when I was looking for some natural medicine to ease the pain, I came across the Alexander Technique. I initially booked a course, which relieved my sciatic pain, and I now have regular sessions. I recommend the Alexander Technique, especially to anyone who has suffered from sciatica or posture difficulties.
