What is the Alexander Technique?
The Alexander Technique helps people with chronic or acute pain due to stress or injury. The Technique helps with all joint-related pain–back, neck, arm, wrist, and leg pain that can limit your movement and mobility.
The Technique is often used by performers to help with tension, injury or performance anxiety issues; however, Alexander Technique Lessons are for anyone.
Learn how to release pain through exploration of the activities where you feel your movement or freedom is limited.
We examine all daily activities– sitting, standing, walking, lying down and work-related. Through raising awareness, learning a few simple principles of the Technique and exploring how you do an activity, habitual holding and tension patterns can unravel. Sometimes the simplest solution is the most effective. The Alexander Technique can reveal that for you.
