What is the Alexander Technique?
The Alexander Technique is an educational process that
focuses on the individual; therefore what happens in a lesson depends very much
on the needs of the student at the time. How we are using ourselves- the way we
do things- affects the results we get. The Alexander Technique is a means of
improving that use wherein people can further their own personal skills and
activities. Olympic level athletes have used the Technique to improve their
performance, as have leading golfers and business people. The person who learns
to stop and take time, to think constructively about how he/she uses
him/herself in every day life will find that this simple procedure can have far
reaching results. (Definition given by Alexander
How can it help Me?
Through study of the Alexander Technique a person can learn
to reduce unnecessary tension when they perform daily or specialized activities. They become more aware of how they are using
their bodies and activity becomes less effortful and therefore more
enjoyable. Pain from specific medical
conditions that are caused or exacerbated by undue muscular tension (e.g.
carpel tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, chronic back pain, or TMJ syndrome) can be
reduced or removed altogether. Anxiety
can be lessened. Students are able to be
in activity for longer periods without undue fatigue.
