Why people come

As young children we move freely with very little effort, reaching, squatting, and sitting with ease.  As we develop through education and into work our life styles are largely sedentary and this takes its toll on our mental, physical and emotional health. For some this results in developing undesirable habits which limit our potential.


Why our bodies change

  • We sit at tables at school and in further education for many hours each day

  • At work we spend a large proportion of our time sitting at computers, driving cars or sitting on trains and buses

  • We are often in a constant state of stress and we lose the ability to let go of mental, emotional and physical tensions.

  • Our relaxation time involves little or no physical activity

Common Problems

  • Back Pain

  • Stiff Neck

  • Tense Shoulders

  • Headaches

  • Aching Joints

  • Breathing Difficulties

  • Stress


These problems generally develop as a result of our lifestyles, the work we do or the sports we play.

The Body as a Whole

The Alexander Technique is about the whole of the body and the effects of the mind and emotions on the physical body. There are many conditions that can benefit from the Alexander Technique.  

Some of these are:

  • High Blood Pressure

  • Digestive problems

  • Osteoporosis

  • Arthritis

  • Asthma

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Multiple Sclerosis

  • RSI

  • Sports Injury

A course of lessons helps to address all of these problems giving us the tools to redress the balance. Pupils learn to have more freedom and flexibility and less tension within the body.
