Pain and illness

My wrist hurts when I use the P.C. do I have to stop or reduce using it whilst I undergo a treatment with the Alexander Technique.

The Alexander Technique is not a treatment and does not aim to treat the part of you that is suffering. During Alexander lessons attention will be given to use of the self as a whole and a new way of being and moving developed. Because it is often practically impossible, you will not be asked to stop or reduce working on the P.C., but you will be asked to apply what you have learned in the Alexander lessons whilst working. With a new and improved use of the self, pains stresses, tensions and injuries due to repetitive strain developed during wrong use will eventually disappear of their own accord.

When I go the Museum, I can’t stand for very long without hurting in my neck, can you help me?

Yes, with the Alexander Technique you will learn to stand and walk keeping the spine lengthened and the whole body framework fully expanded so as not to compress the neck vertebrae.
