Alexander Technique for pain management
Alexander Technique is an effective management strategy for symptoms of pain. It also promotes the best conditions for addressing root causes of pain.
Pain in one are of the body is influenced by the condition of the rest of the body. Alexander Technique teaches you to use your whole self well to address localised symptoms.
For example, back pain may be related to the poise of your head on your spine, and the way you carry weight through your legs and feet.
RSI in the wrist may be affected by an habitual shoulder alignment or elbow movement. Alexander Technique will help you to identify these patterns and address them.
The attention to the whole also impacts on compensatory patterns which may have become habituated after injury or trauma.
