What is the Alexander Technique?

The benefits of the Alexander Technique
There are many benefits to the Alexander Technique. One common reason the Alexander Technique is used in treatment is to improve posture. It enables individuals of all ages to regain good posture for the long-term — free of stiffness and tension.
Another reason people seek out the Alexander Technique is musculoskeletal pain. A leading contributing factor of musculoskeletal pain is unrecognized patterns of excess tension. A common response to pain is further tension, which usually exacerbates discomfort. Because it teaches how to recognize and unlearn these habitual patterns, the Alexander Technique has long been known for its effectiveness in relieving neck, back and joint pain for the long-term.
