About Alexander Technique sessions

In an Alexander Technique session a teacher will use gentle touch to facilitate a process of change, and ‘undoing’ to release tensions and facilitate re-alignment of the spine. A session may include simple movement such as standing sitting and walking, and the ‘balanced resting position: the position of maximum rest for your spine, which can bring about ease and release as well as relaxation and stress relief.

You do not need to be experiencing discomfort or pain to benefit from sessions. However if you are, you can be assured that this method can bring gentle assistance to help you manage and alleviate pain, as well as help prevent issues developing further.
