I hate the description "alternative health" but there was no other relevant category available. The truth is there are just things that work and you will be the judge of that! The Alexander Technique isn't alternative in any way. It is completely compatible with orthodox Western medical knowledge and works by teaching us to use our bodyminds in the way they are meant to work. People tend to come to AT when they've tried every other option with no success. I suspect that's because AT isn't a "quick fix". It demands your attention and participation. In this way it isn't a "therapy". It isn't something you have done to you - it's something you learn and make your own. That's how come in the biggest back pain trial ever conducted, AT came out better than traditional treatment or massage, still having positive effects a year after a course of 6 lessons. It is best known for back and neck problems, RSI and chronic physical problems. What is less well known is that is excellent for anxiety, stress and any emotional disorders. That's because it works on the whole system, as body and mind are inseparable. It isn't hard to learn and it feels great! It helps with performance in sports, acting, public speaking/presentations and music. It even helps with mental clarity and insight into behavioural habits. It opens up the possibility for change, even for quite entrenched patterns. It has changed my life, so I am passionate about what I do. I hope in this page to get the word out so everyone can benefit from this wonderful Technique :-)

I am often asked how it's possible to keep the feeling of calm and ease that comes from lessons. The truth is it requires a certain amount of hands-on work as well as directing in between lessons to get the new way of being ingrained in the body. It takes time to build up habits, and it takes a gentle persistence to undo them....

We live most of our lives by habit. These habits keep us stuck in patterns that limit our experience of life. Once we detect a pattern we were previously unconscious of, we can choose differently, if we want. With awareness comes choice and with choice, we gain freedom. -- John Robson

When we touch something unlovely in ourselves—fear, anger, jealousy, shame, disgust—we tend to withdraw emotionally and direct our attention elsewhere. But denying how we feel, or projecting our fears and faults onto others, only drives a wedge between us and the people we yearn to be close to. - Christopher K. Germer, "Getting Along

WHAT IS YOUR BODY TELLING YOU? "There are times when we may fool ourselves. There are times when we can fool others. But we can never fool our body. It is the most sensitive barometer of our inner world." -- Sherrill Sellman

What a lovely group for the AT course. So open, warm and supportive. It's going to be a fun 6 weeks :-)

Ha, a pattern is emerging! I got outed at a sea kayak symposium too and did mini AT sessions on the grass :-)
