My interest in the Alexander Technique started after 25 years of back pain. Again and again, I looked for something or some way of getting relief. Previously, I had sought treatment in osteopathy, acupuncture and chiropractic and conventional medicine and although each of these helped for a while, the pain always returned.
In 2000, I began studying the Alexander Technique and very quickly felt the benefits in a number of areas of my life. It helped in the movement aspects of the martial arts I was practising. I found I could do more with less effort and movement became simplified. Alexander Technique showed me that the way I was thinking and acting in my everyday activites was the root cause of the pain. Through regular lessons I learned that I could end this self-imposed interference and enjoy not just freedom from pain but continual improvement.
