For profound relaxation, natural poise and coordination, improved performance, ease and efficiency, and to help with postural problems, neck, back, muscle and joint pains, one of the best solutions is the Alexander Technique.
The Alexander Technique came out as the best way of dealing with chronic back pain in research carried out by the NHS and published in the British Medical Journal in August 2008. Its scope goes far further than this though.
It has within it, the basis of true choice. Most of our lives are governed by habits. These serve us well most of the time, but to make worthwhile changes in our lives, we need to be able to put these habits aside for a while. We need to be able to simply not do what we would ordinarily and habitually done, for long enough to allow our minds to come up with and assess some worthwhile alternatives. Because of this, the Alexander Technique is one of the most powerful tools for change that there is.
There are many books about the Alexander Technique, however I am currently writing about how you can learn the technique far more quickly, thoroughly and easily than ever before. Whereas teachers of the technique used to claim that you needed at least 30 sessions to just get to a basic level of proficiency (equivalent to scales and simple tunes if you were learning a musical instrument) I can lead most people to independence within 10 to 15 sessions.
