Rediscover your Natural Balance - Whatever your Age

When you were a child moving easily was natural.  As you get older, tension and stress becomes a part of everyday life. Maybe you have tried various treatments and therapies which have helped in the short term but the issues still returned. 


What if you could learn to regain the easy movement you had as a child?

The Alexander Technique is not a treatment like Chiropractic or Osteopathy, a relaxation technique, or a set of exercises such as Pilates.  So what is it?


The Alexander Technique is a gentle yet powerful method of changing the habits that cause excessive stress and strain on muscles and joints. It gives the mind and body a chance to work together more freely and restores the natural balance, often providing relief from stress and tension, leading to better mental health and physical relaxation. 

The natural way you moved as a child is still in you and the Alexander Technique, used in everyday life, helps to bring that movement back whatever the cause of your pain or stress.


Using the Alexander Technique can help to alleviate the habits which cause a range of conditions from backache to sciatica, lower back pain, RSI, stress, tension, to name a few.

It takes no special skill or aptitude to get back to a better way of moving. It is a simple re-education technique - mindfulness for everyday living.
