Sustained relief from pain - while you work, rest and play.

Alexander Technique offers effective management of symptoms and causes of pain.  Not only for temporary relief, but for sustained comfort in activity.  It has been used to address issues such as back and neck pain, sciatica and spinal injuries, chronic pain, overuse injuries, headache and migraine, arthritis, Parkinson’s, MS and other degenerative conditions.

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.

Addressing pain holistically

Alexander Technique empowers students to self-manage their conditions. It offers practical, proactive methods for dealing with the acute onset of pain and the challenge of getting through daily activities.  

By presenting a framework for active mindfulness, Alexander Technique interrupts negative cycles.  It is uniquely suited to managing complex, chronic or longstanding pain patterns. 

Quality personal attention

Alexander Technique is a non-invasive process designed to support the body’s natural healing.  It may be used concurrently with other treatments whilst offering something distinctly unique.

Your Alexander Technique teacher will listen closely to your pain experiences and customise practices to best support your condition whilst you learn.

Improved functioning and independently sustained ease

An Alexander Technique lesson is often therapeutic and may dissolve acute symptoms.  More profound benefit comes when students take the skills they have learnt and independently applies them in their daily lives.

To pracitce Alexander Technique is to direct oneself away from pain, towards ease and grace.
