Alexander Technique


Alexander Technique


The Alexander technique is used in three main ways. Originally, 
it was used to address the nuisance habits of actors and musicians. 
As remedial movement education, it teaches freedom of movement,
improving specific self-imposed limitations brought about by 
unconscious postural habits. It offers a means of self-observation 
and holistic impulse control.

The remedial application includes alleviating pain and limitation as
a result of poor posture or repetitive physical demands. The 
Technique improves pain management for chronic disability. It 
offers rehabilitation following surgery or injury where compensatory 
habits were designed to avoid former pain that needs to be 
eliminated after healing for complete recovery. The Alexander 
technique has been proved to be an effective treatment for 
chronic or recurrent back pain in a randomized study published 
by the British Medical Journal Aug. 19, 2008.[6]

As an example among performance art applications, the work is
used and taught by classically trained vocal coaches and musicians. 
Its advocates claim that it allows for the free alignment of all 
aspects of the vocal tract by consciously increasing air flow, 
allowing improved vocal technique and tone. Because the 
technique has allegedly been used to improve breathing and 
stamina in general, advocates also claim that athletes, people 
with asthma, tuberculosis, and panic attacks have also found 
improvements.

It has also been informally reputed to allow height retention in
older adults. Some adults gain height.[citation needed]

Along the application of impulse control, proponents of the
technique suggest that it can eliminate stage fright, allow more 
spontaneity, and to expand skill repertoire. It is suggested that
it can be an adjunct to psychotherapy for people with disabilities, 
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, panic attacks, stuttering, and 
chronic pain because using its principles can improve stress 
management abilities.
