There is good evidence for the benefits of Alexander Technique
- Alexander Technique is recognised by the NHS and NICE.
- In 2008 the British Medical Journal found Alexander to be the best intervention for chronic low back pain, when measured against other treatments.
- In 2015 the ATLAS trial found that, for patients with chronic neck pain, those offered Alexander experienced around a third less pain and associated disability, and improvement was sustained a year after the trial, even after the Alexander lessons ended. Improvement was also seen in the mental health of those offered Alexander Technique.
- In 2002 a University of Westminster study demonstrated that Alexander Technique lessons led to an increased ability of people with Parkinson’s disease to carry out everyday activities.
- Alexander has been shown to help with chronic pain, postural tone, balance in older people and a range of other issues. For more information see: http://alexandertechnique.co.uk/alexander-technique/research
