This small pilot non-controlled study explored the potential of group Alexander Technique teaching for people with persistent neck pain. Reductions in neck pain were observed and these were associated with participants’ ability following the classes to lessen excessive muscular tension.  These findings show the value in further research on group teaching in this setting.

Neck Pain

The advice and coaching from my Alexander teacher during training for a London to Paris bike ride transformed my experience immeasurably and I am pleased to say that I was really able to enjoy the event without suffering as many of my co-participants did. I would urge anyone who is considering any physical challenge and is interested in, or, practising AT to seek some specific AT tips and advice.
