Eliminate those unhelpful habits and feel better.

The Alexander Technique offers a variety of health benefits, to people of all ages, which can be maintained once having learned the basic concepts. People study the Technique for a variety of reasons. The most common reasons are:

Stress Management
By teaching how to respond to any stimulus with less tension, the Alexander Technique enables you to better handle life’s stresses.

Pain Relief
A leading contributing factor of musculoskeletal pain (and often its underlying cause) is unrecognized patterns of excess tension. People tend to respond to pain by tensing further, which usually exacerbates discomfort. Because it teaches how to recognize and unlearn these habitual patterns, the Alexander Technique is known for its effectiveness in relieving neck, back and joint pain for the long-term.

Skill Enhancement
Athletes — amateur and professional — use the Technique to improve strength, increase endurance, enhance flexibility and increase speed and accuracy of responsiveness. Performing artists (actors, singers, dancers, musicians) apply the principles to relieve performance anxiety while improving concentration and stage presence. Public speakers use it to improve vocal projection and overall voice quality. Those in business find it enhances presentation skills and increases confidence.

The Technique also helps improve:

  • Stature and posture
  • Agility and stamina
  • Focus and attention
  • Confidence and self-esteem
  • Co-ordination and efficiency of movement
  • Ability to recover from illness
