Alexander Technique featured in Spine Health

From December 2010- a great short interview with one of my Alexander mentors about the effectiveness of Alexander Technique in treating back pain, spinal conditions, and repetitive strain injury.

Spinal Health: "Would you call the Alexander Technique an “alternative treatment”?"
Judy Stern: I call it “Integrative Medicine.” It is not a treatment, nor a therapy, it is an educational process with therapeutic results.

"Martin points out that the Alexander Technique is not goal-oriented, an aspect that separates it from other exercise systems. "Trying too hard with anything just produces more tension and rigidity," Martin explains. "The hallmark of the Alexander skill is not to do something, but rather recognizing what it is that is getting in your way and letting it go."

"With Alexander, you don't have to put on special clothes, set an hour aside, go to the gym and sit on a mat," Connington said. "You can do it whenever—driving a car, sitting at a computer or singing."
