How it works

The Alexander Technique helps you identify the source of chronic pain and recurrent injuries and shows you how to change the way you move and hold yourself to help you end the cycle of pain.

A practical solution

The Alexander Technique can help you to reduce pain, disability and stress. We can help you to get moving safely again. Improving your posture, approach to movement and coordination helps boost confidence and stamina.

The best thing is that it is safe, cost-effective and requires no expensive technical equipment. We effect positive change in people’s lives with no gimmicks, no expensive equipment, and no nasty side effects.

Six sessions and you are likely to experience an improvement. Twelve sessions and the improvement is likely to double, and with 24 sessions you can achieve a significant and lasting change. A recent trial of the success of the Alexander Technique for people with back pain achieved an 86% reduction in the occurrence of pain per month.

Anxiety, stress and strain all contribute to the chronic and recurrent nature of pain. Alexander Technique teachers are trained to teach you how to gain control over your tension levels and help shift the pain cycle.

Movement Pattern

Posture and stress contribute to the way you approach movement in both everyday tasks and specialist activities. Over time this movement pattern can  cause discomfort, tension and overuse injury in your body. The Alexander Technique helps get to the cause of the problem, assisting you to change your posture and movement pattern. It is suitable for all ages. With the Alexander Technique it is never too late to make a change.

We are committed to helping Australians suffering from chronic and recurrent pain.
