Find out how the Alexander Technique can help you

The Alexander Technique is a method of teaching people how to use themselves better in all activities. This is shown to reduce back and neck pain, balance problems and is a way of helping you to be more in control of your own body.

Often people seek help to realign their back but immediately return to a poor use of themselves (stressful habits at work, for instance) which result in tense neck and shoulders whereby the pain caused by this harmful tension continues unchecked.

Alexander Technique gives you the tools to identify and change harmful habits of tension within your body enabling you to alleviate the conditions within which your pain or discomfort has developed.

Postural patterns are intimately connected to our emotions and mental state; thinking affects your body and the use of your body affects the state of your mind. Only by looking at the two systems together can you bring yourself to balance.

The use of light touch and Alexander Technique instructive thinking, will bring awareness to the use of your body and set patterns of moving. It is used by actors and musicians to perform efficiently and spontaneously and also in the treatment of chronic illness or conditions due to stress. This is ultimately a system of self analysis which leads to self care in every day functioning.

There are many health benefits to learning the Technique but it can notably help with bringing an overall sense of well-being, reduced pain and stress levels.

About Andrea

I worked as a Production Designer in the television industry for 25 years. Television is fast paced and a thrilling industry full of lively people; an experience I cherish and have learnt much from.

Upon the arrival of my son, however, I began to recognise the need for more balance in my life. I embarked upon a series of Alexander Technique lessons with Peter Bloch having had some experience of the technique as a child flautist. I was instantly hooked and soon signed up to train as a teacher, a 3 year process.

I am enthusiastic about Alexander Technique and the possibility of helping people to become happier, more mobile and experience a reduction in pain.

I belong to the Society of Teachers of Alexander Technique (STAT).
