Management and Prevention using Alexander Technique
A natural approach to caring for your back
Medical and clinical experts are united in telling you what to do to manage your back pain.
They have excellent advice:
- Use relaxation techniques to keep stress down
- Use good body mechanics
- Maintain well balanced posture
- Exercise regularly
Where the experts let you down is in teaching you HOW to do these activities. Changing your posture is tricky! You sit straight for a moment then it hurts so you slump again! Alexander Technique will make it easy to find your natural well balanced posture.
We help you learn HOW to manage your everyday activities

I was in a desperate situation trying to break free of constant spinal discomfort. Alexander gave me the skills to manage my condition very effectively… It is very real.

Alexander Technique is proven to help for lower back pain, evidence from the Randomised controlled trial of Alexander Technique lessons, exercise, and massage (ATEAM) for chronic and recurrent back pain. British Medical Journal, Published 19 August 2008.
Recent back pain research advocates structured integrated programs where you get education for daily life – Alexander Technique lessons will give you this!
Just changing your thinking, or doing exercise alone is not as effective as combining them into a structured program of activity and education
