  • for pain
  • for posture
  • for performance

The technique is a method of overcoming habitual patterns of posture and thought.

Learning and applying the technique leads to less tension throughout the body, and is very useful for postural problems to make you feel light and poised. Though not a therapy the Alexander Technique can also be beneficial for conditions like anxiety, high blood pressure, some migraines, asthma, arthritis, back/neck/shoulder aches or problems, some voice disorders, repetitive strain injury and joint problems. Although actors, dancers and musicians use it to enhance performance, many people use it simply to gain relief from pain.
