What the Alexander Technique can do for you
The Alexander Technique is a well-established and practical method of movement re-education, involving both body and mind. With it you can learn to move with more ease and less effort. The Alexander Technique can help you:
• Find relief from unnecessary tension and its effects (e.g. back, shoulder, neck pain, RSI, breathing and vocal issues, stress and emotional issues)
• Improve your posture
• Regain your natural balance and co-ordination
• Move again with your inborn lightness, grace and ease
You can also explore how movement is connected to the mind. By giving you the skills to change your patterns of moving, the Alexander Technique can also help you change your habits of thinking and feeling. You can learn a new way of being.
Anyone can learn irrespective of age and fitness. And as it is an educational method, it offers lasting solutions and independence from treatment and therapists.
Special offer taster session: £40 (60 minutes)
Special offer package of five sessions: £200 (60 minutes per session, payable in advance, valid for 6 months)
About Your Sessions
Working initially with everyday movements such as sitting, standing and walking, Harriet will help you to unravel your individual habitual tension patterns. You also get to lie down and relax.
Using verbal explanation and a guiding touch, Harriet will then work with you to discover a new way of moving and thinking that encourages your natural balance and co-ordination.
The number of sessions required is highly individual. Harriet aims to give you something to work with right from the very first session. You will not be asked to remove any clothing, except your shoes.
