The Alexander Technique has been around for over 100 years and in that time has produced an abundance of anecdotal and evidence-based reports of the beneficial results enjoyed by thousands of people. The interactive nature of the technique makes it a more challenging exercise to capture the specific workings of the technique in a more scientifically-structured experiment.
Recently there have been research trials conducted that have produced solid demonstrations of the impressive impact the Alexander Technique can have on people’s health and wellbeing. These include studies on back pain, Parkinson’s Disease and others currently in progress.
Here are links to some of these research projects:
