What does the Alexander Technique have to do with using a computer?
When people type, they usually think about deadlines, content, anything except how they are typing.

When they finish, they may often have aches in their back, neck, arms or wrists and have no idea why (or think it's unavoidable).

The Alexander Technique teaches people to:

  • observe and reduce tension build-up
  • simplify movement patterns
  • access support while sitting or standing
  • improve their posture
    thus preventing the injuries that repetitive motions of typing can otherwise cause.

    It can also provide support and greater comfort for those who wish to return to work after a rest period.

    If you experience ...

  • long hours spent sitting
  • long hours using computers
  • discomfort or stiffness from old injuries
  • muscle strain

    You can learn to

  • prevent injuries
  • improve posture
  • free your breathing
  • alleviate tension
    by studying the Alexander Technique

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
    Carpal tunnel syndrome is a label often given to problems created by overuse and misuse of the wrist in repetitive activities such as typing.

    There are specific medical avenues to address carpal tunnel; however, they do not always take into account the role of habitual movement patterns.

    So, as a person with a diagnosis follows a doctor's advice, they often find it helpful to also build an awareness of the impact of habitual tension and misuse, and more importantly, how to replace these patterns with healthy work habits. (And to take plenty of breaks!)
