Who can benefit from the Alexander Technique?
Alexander Technique is not only used by musicians or dancers. Anybody, regardless their age or profession can benefit from this technique. Often, people visit an Alexander Technique teacher because of physical problems such as lower back pain, RSI, tendinitis and so on. If these problems are in any way related to a faulty use of the body, which often is the case, the Alexander Technique can be very helpful.
Scientific research also proves that. Click here for a video about lower back pain in the British Medical Journal. According to HeArts, health care for artists, a department of the Antwerp University Hospital, 68% of professional musicians have muscle and joint problems and 60% of dancers suffer from lower back pain. The Alexander Technique can not only cure and prevent these kinds of problems but can also improve performance and help you to enjoy your daily activities again.
