The benefits can be far reaching provided there is a willingness to learn and to be open to choices. Whatever your age or physical condition the Alexander Technique can help:
The Alexander Technique looks at how you do whatever it is that you do.
That awareness can help you to learn to deal with things that take less out of you, leaving more energy for the things you enjoy. Many poor health conditions are not an inevitable part of growing older, they are often related to how we use ourselves.
Unconscious habits of slumping, stooping or holding ourselves upright are often the cause of aches and pains or poor functioning of internal organs.
The technique is a learning process rather than a form of treatment. Usually taught in individual lessons, your teacher uses the gentle guidance of her hands to help you restore your postural reflexes and natural tone.
A lesson involves the release of over-tight muscles while at rest, and observing yourself in everyday activities, ie. Moving in and out of a chair, walking, and using your voice. In this way you are made aware of your body use and begin to learn new ways of sitting, standing and moving.
You have the opportunity to be active in the process of learning to use thought to affect muscle activity. The teacher encourages you to ask questions and apply the Technique to your life
