What happens in an Alexander Technique lesson? 0777 477 0884
Alexander Technique is neither a treatment nor a therapy. It's a life skill you apply to everything you do. You learn about the power of habit, how to change your response to stress and change, and therefore how to stop creating unnecessary muscular tension (and potentially pain) within yourself. Lessons are usually one-to-one and last 45 minutes, although the first one may take a little longer. In the lessons you'll learn to 'use' yourself better, i.e. integrate mind and body for maximum ease and efficiency. Read more about the Benefits of the Alexander Technique.

What happens in a lesson?
You need to be comfortably dressed and prepared to remove your shoes. Although you won't be doing any exercises, you will probably lie down on the table for part of the lesson. Lessons involve a mixture of talking and gentle touch. There is no manipulation. You're learning skills that you can take away and use in everyday life. To get the best out of your lessons, think about what you have learned, and notice what you do in the time before the next lesson.
