BRITISH MEDICAL JOURNAL PROVES EFFECTIVENESS OF THE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE
Exciting research has been published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) that proves that the Alexander Technique is an effective treatment for long-term back pain - better than painkillers, physiotherapy, massage or exercise alone.
The Study was published in the BMJ on 20 August 2008 - see links below for the full publication, newspaper articles and to watch a video made by the study team.
How does the Alexander Technique work? What are the authors findings about the clinical and cost effectiveness of the treatment? Watch the BMJ video to find out (12 min), which also contains some good footage about what the Technique is all about.
The Constructive Teaching Centre (CTC) is the oldest Alexander Technique training centre in the world. It was established by Walter Carrington in 1960 as the new home for FM Alexander's original training course which he was supervising at the time of Alexander's death. CTC is run by The Walter Carrington Educational Trust, which provides further information about Walter Carrington and the Technique as taught at CTC.
Alexander Books specialises in a range of books and other resources on the Alexander Technique.
