When you are racing over distances of up to 50 kms, you have to be efficient. The Alexander Technique makes a difference for me. Since having lessons I feel lighter on my skis and going faster to the finish line. This last year has been my best ever and even in the Olympics I could apply the principles of Alexander Technique.

Alexander Technique sensitises you to deeply ingrained physical and mental habits. Once you have an awareness of these habits…you have a good basis on which to start building sustainable, effortless and confident movement. The Alexander Technique can be applied not only to specialised skills needed as a musician, actor or athlete, but also to everyday tasks. It can facilitate a more centred way of being…

I had repetitive strain injuries in my arms, shoulder and neck. Alexander Technique has gradually led my spine to straighten, open up and let go of old tensions. I am walking taller and straighter. I would recommend the Technique to anyone who is troubled by discomfort of any kind in their body.
The Technique has enhanced my life. I know that I am freer in relating to others, I have a better perspective on life and am prepared to try new ventures which I would never have considered before. I am also finding I seem to work more efficiently – less rushed but completing tasks more easily.
I confidently refer patients who present with back pain or neck pain to the Alexander Technique. The postural improvements are very impressive and this certainly impacts positively on symptoms of pain.
