Alexander Technique is not just a therapy, but an education
for the mind and body to learn to move in a new effortless way.
Unconsciously acquired poor habits are replaced by consciously
acquired good habits, leading to an improvement of general functioning
and a greater sense of well-being, thereby relieving pain and stress
throughout the body"
The trial results showed clearly that 24 one-to-one lessons in the Alexander Technique provided the greatest benefit from the other methods used by reducing days in pain and improving function and quality of life.
After 24 lessons the number of days in pain was only 3 per month compared with 21 in the control group, 1 year after the trial commenced.

"With the Alexander Technique you are taught how to use your body correctly so it makes the violin hold much easier. Violin teachers tend to isolate each part; wrist, fingers and upper arms. But it is easier and simpler to understand what is going on if you bring your back into your playing. If you know it all initiates from the back – you don’t have to worry from thereon."
