Alexander Technique lessons are the fastest, deepest, most effective way I have of helping you solve your back pain.
Lessons are quiet, one-to-one sessions in which I put my hands on your head, neck and back, and guide you through various movements. I give you feedback with my hands, and verbally.
The basic idea behind Alexander Technique lessons is that many back problems are to do with how you learned to move-- it is not so much structural damage to your back that is the source of pain, but the way you use your body. If you learn to move with more freedom and alertness, you will almost always find that your pain reduces significantly or disappears. In a recent randomised, double-blind controlled trial, chronic back pain was halved after 6 Alexander Technique lessons. 21 days of pain each month became 11 days-- as measured a year after the lessons began. Please contact me to discuss one-to-one lessons further.
If I think the Alexander Technique is not suitable for you, I will not hesitate to tell you. Here are some possible reasons:
