Alexander Technique Back Care Basics

The Alexander Technique can help you prevent or recover from back injury by giving you specific skills to apply on the job, at the computer or on the run. Discover how to heed the signs of strain before back pain and injury set in. Learn pain relief strategies, including a comfortable, restorative way to rest your back each day.


Stretching with the Alexander Technique

A daily gentle stretching routine can wake you up, get you going and, if you work out, make you stronger. Rather than tugging on stubborn, rigid muscles, learn how to use the mind-body connection to ease muscle tension and restore elasticity. Learn a set of all around stretches that can help you make new gains in flexibility.
