What is the Alexander Technique?

Many of the problems that we see every day in practice are created or worsened by our postural and movement habits.  The Alexander Technique is a skill for self-awareness teaching you to change long-standing habits that cause unnecessary tension in everything you do.

Whatever your age or ability, the Technique can help boost your performance in any activity and relieve the pain and stress caused by postural habits, like slouching or rounded shoulders.

Everyday reactions like tensing when the phone rings, rushing to pick up the children from school or worrying about deadlines lead to physical and mental strain. Over the years, this accumulates and can cause illness, injury or common aches and pains that may seem to come from nowhere.

Olivia Boot Simpson MSTAT, brings 20 years experience of teaching the Alexander Technique and will teach you to recognise your usual reactions to the stresses of life, how to prevent them and regain control.  The result – greater freedom of movement and postural vitality.

Olivia offers appointments at Lyndhurst Chiropractic Clinic on Tuesdays and on Friday mornings.
