Then the Alexander Technique could be for you. It is an incredibly effective way of learning how to release unwanted tension in our bodies. This tension builds up through habits and everyday life. This can pull our bodies out of shape affecting our balance and coordination, causing problems including back and neck pain, migraines and poor posture to mention a few.
The Alexander Technique helps you regain your natural poise and coordination you had as a small child. It is a skill that you learn with the help of a teacher, enabling you to use it in everyday life. The technique is NOT a treatment or therapy such as massage or manipulation nor is it an exercise regime like Pilates or yoga. However it can help enhance any activities you do such as yoga, horse riding or playing an instrument.
