Event description

Description

Are you suffering from back pain? The Alexander Technique is well-known for improving balance, posture and coordination, helping prevent or dramatically alleviate many of the common aches and pains that are common today.

80% of the population suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. Others will suffer with neck, hip, knee and numerous aches and pains most of which are caused by posture and the way we move. By using the Alexander Technique to improve balance, posture and co-ordination we can help prevent or dramatically alleviate many of the common aches and pains that are common today.

The technique can help to increase confidence, self-esteem and spontaneity. It also can be very useful to musicians who suffer from tension problems when playing their instrument or any sportsperson who wishes to avoid injury or improve their performance.
