Jane Baker MSTAT - Alexander Technique
Qualifications: Member of STAT (Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique)
Jane trained as an Alexander Technique (AT) practitioner at the Brighton Alexander Technique college in 2005. She was inspired to complete the 3 year training course when AT gave her long lasting relief for the chronic neck and shoulder pain that was making work unbearable.
The Alexander Technique is an effective method for changing the habits that contribute to functional problems such as back pain, muscle tension, poor posture and breathing problems. AT is also a useful tool to help minimise the impact of stress and anxiety. From the first session you can begin to apply it to your everyday life, work and leisure activities.
The BMJ trial in 2008 found The Alexander Technique to have long term benefits for people with chronic low back pain. Click here for details: https://alexandertechnique.co.uk/research/randomised-controlled-trial-alexander-technique-lessons-exercise-and-massage-ateam
The Alexander Technique is a self help technique that re-educates your body back into good postural habits by optimising the natural balance of the head, neck and back. It increases your body awareness, improves natural movement and makes you more mindful. It improves your balance, co-ordination and posture in everything you do, increasing your performance.
The Alexander Technique is a gentle, beneficial treatment for changing postural habits and is suitable for teenagers through to the elderly. It complements other disciplines and treatments. Both 1-2-1 and group classes are available.
