How does the Alexander Technique work? Towards a scientific model.
The Alexander Technique is an educational method for changing long-standing habits of tension. Research suggests it results in improved movement, balance and overall wellbeing, and that it has significant benefits for people with back pain, neck pain and those living with Parkinson’s disease. But how does it work? For the first time, a modern neurophysiological explanation is proposed, drawing on direct studies of the Alexander Technique and other relevant scientific literature.
