F.M. Alexander technique in the treatment of stuttering - a randomized single-case intervention study with ambulatory monitoring

Psychother Psychosom. 2006;75(3):190-1Schulte D, Walach H.

BRIEF SUMMARY

Two individuals with persistent stuttering showed significant improvements in their ability to influence their stuttering following 30 one-to-one Alexander Technique lessons. The study looked at 17 different physical and psychological measures related to stuttering and demonstrated significant improvements in eight of these measures. Further research is needed to validate these findings in a larger study.

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!
