Alexander technique

The Alexander technique is a therapy that aims to improve health by teaching people to stand and move more efficiently.

Developed in the 1920s by F. Mathias Alexander, the technique is based on the belief that bad patterns of body movement interfere with the proper functioning of the body and therefore contribute to the development of disease. By releasing unnecessary muscle tensions, the Alexander technique aims to eliminate or reduce the severity of many disorders, including back pain, asthma, and stammering.
