Cue; The Alexander Technique for
posture improvement, pain management and greater movement!

A lot of chronic pain is caused by poor postural and movement habits. This is the pain that you feel.

Unless they are addressed, these habits create long term patterns of surplus tension in the body which can lead to acute, debilitating pain.

It's like continuously bashing your head against a brick wall! No matter how many times you apply the ice-pack, the pain will win in the end because you keep doing it!

The Benefits of the Alexander Technique

The Alexander Technique Furness

Have you been looking for help with pain, posture and movement? Have you considered the Alexander Technique for posture improvement, pain management and to gain a greater range of movement?

 

As humans, we have the unique ability to choose how we use our bodies and minds.

What we do and how we do it is primarily up to us to decide. That doesn’t make things easy, though. For all of our perceived free will, we are governed by habitual movements, and responses. gathered throughout our lifetime. Life events, work, stress, even our experiences in childhood, can all play a part in building patterns of posture and movement that cause problems later in life. Quite often, we are oblivious to these patterns of behaviour and response, because they are embedded in habits which feel normal to us but may be compromising our wellbeing in some way.

 

F.M Alexander made three great discoveries:

  • That the human being has a natural, optimal operating system
  • That the human being can consciously and unconsciously interfere with that system
  • That, with the right guidance, the human being can restore that natural, optimal operating system

Cue; The Alexander Technique for posture improvement, pain management and greater movement!

"I came to Richard originally for a taster session. After six lessons my pain was reduced significantly. If the pain does appear I now have my own method of alleviating it"

- Jean, Ulverston

“My first visit with Richard felt like revelation. After almost giving up hope of ever finding a cure/reason for my back pain, four lessons in and I’m confident for the first time in years that it’s possible I will be pain free again.”

- Helen from Ulverston

So how do you go about taking charge of your recovery?

Through the teacher helping you to gain awareness of the habitual tendencies that are putting you wrong, The Alexander Technique can help you regain your optimal operating system. This means that the patterns of pain start to weaken and diminish leading to you feeling stronger, more relaxed and clear-thinking. As upright, bipedal creatures, posture is vital to our everyday wellbeing.

Many health problems can be traced to purely bad posture and guess what? No-one ever teaches us this so quite often, we are left in the dark!

How should I stand? How should I sit? How should I bend down? How should I walk?

Walking is a good example as we all tend to walk in our own personal way. What if though, when we walk, we list to one side, or we let the weight of the upper body put unnecessary strain on the leg joints or that we compensate for injuries that may well have been in the past. Just think about it for a second, how many times do we engage in these activities every day? 50. 100. 200 etc.

What if you are compromising your structure by habitually putting repetitive strain on your body again and again?

Do you think your body might eventually complain? It’s common sense, so we’re going back to the example of ‘bashing your head against a brick wall’. No other discipline available addresses this vital aspect of your life. If you go to see a professional who manipulates you, prescribes remedial exercises etc. you may get welcome, short term relief but you’re not addressing the source of the problem which will most likely be, your habitual tendencies.

Faulty posture and movement patterns can cause patterns of excess tension in your body which can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms, and they can interfere with your ability to perform many activities. It's not surprising that most people come to the Alexander Technique because they are in chronic pain

Also, performers who want to improve the quality of their singing, playing, acting, or dancing come to The Alexander Technique to ensure that they are recruiting that optimal operating system. With gentle hands-on guidance and verbal explanations, I will help you find ease and balance within yourself, relearning simple moments and everyday activities, such as sitting, standing, walking, or bending.

Others will start to notice your improved posture, your stamina will start to increase and you’ll have the capacity to recover from injuries more quickly.
