Benefits of the Alexander Technique

Excess tension in your body can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms and it can interfere with your ability to perform activities well. How did the Alexander Technique help celebrities like Paul Newman and Sting?

Therefore it is not surprising that most people come to the Alexander Technique because they are in pain (backaches, sore necks and shoulders, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.) and/or because they are performers who want to improve the quality of their singing, playing, acting or dancing.

People of all ages and occupations have benefited from Alexander Technique lessons.  The Technique also has its share of famous people who have publicly endorsed it – including two Nobel Prize winners and a great many celebrities like Paul Newman, John Cleese, William Hurt, Sting, James Galway and Yehudi Menuhun.
