Workshops for Professionals

Professional people have specific demands made on their mental and physical selves and these lessons deal with these issues in detail.

‘2.5 million people in the UK have back pain every day of the year. The cost to the NHS, business and the economy is an estimated £5 billion per year.’ – STAT

Those who work at a computer,  play sport, play a musical instrument or sing, are on their feet for long periods teaching etc.,  can find immense relief from tensions and anxiety, so their chosen profession becomes more efficient and  more enjoyable.

I can replicate some of the physical layout of your workstation so we can examine and address particular tensions that could be avoided in how you work there.   Musicians can  work with their instruments.   Some sports e.g. running or golf can be worked on in the studio or outside.

I can also work with you in your workplace or at home .

My in-company services include individual or group lessons, workshops and talks.   This is a great way to address the particular issues that arise in your work environment.  I adapt the Alexander Technique to ensure it is relevant t your needs.

If you employ staff, this is a worthwhile investment in your employees health and well being.  A healthy workforce means less days off work with work- related ailments.   Your team will be given practical tools for reducing strain and tension as they work.  This makes a huge difference to energy levels and productivity.

Testimonials:

I attribute my ability to be able to practise for up to 8 hours without backache to my Alexander lessons which I was fortunate enough to receive at school. It is difficult to overestimate the value of this technique. - N.L.

The Alexander Technique is very safe and gentle … The most effective of all the treatments reviewed. – Backcare, Charity for Healthier Backs

Physiotherapy and medication gave only short-term improvement. On being introduced to the Alexander Technique I was somewhat sceptical that anything was going to work, but can only describe the relief gained and maintained as quite incredible. General posture has improved and neck mobility has returned to that last experienced more than twenty years ago. What more could I ask for? – Kieran Tobin, Senior Surgeon, University College Hospital, Galway, Ireland
