Posture and Pain
The Alexander Technique helps alleviate chronic and recurring pain caused by posture, stress and tension and this has been confirmed by numerous medical research trials.
What first appears to be lazy or stiff posture may in fact a problem of muscular coordination, a lack of teamwork in the body. Some muscles are overworking whilst others are under working. This can lead to poor body mechanics and pain.
This may show itself in postural problems such as scoliosis, kyphosis or lordosis.
It can also be a factor in Hypermobillity conditions such as Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS).
