Youth and Alexander Technique

Give posture training to today’s young with multi-stresses.  This positive technique is a powerful skill for effortless self growth for youth. Parents, how are your scholars coping with stress, coordination, bad posture?  With too much screen work etc in the modern world?

Is your child:
  • uncoordinated and clumsy?
  • growing too fast effortless self growth?
  • hyperactive?
  • often tired and listless?
  • broken a bone, and despite physio etc, there is still a lot of pain in the area?
  • uncoordinated and clumsy?
Does your child:
  • spend long hours at the computer or TV?
  • complain of carrying too heavy a bag?
  • lack sparkle, confidence, vitality?
  • complain of painful neck or shoulders?
  • complain of “growing pains”?

As a child grows from babyhood, it explores every muscle, every movement, many times till it is quite confident, before taking the next learning step. And so the child develops. Once out in the world, all kinds of new experiences happen, and occasionally a negative experience might arrest the natural progression of developmental learning e.g. growing too fast or breaking a bone.

With normal movement, when we perhaps pick up a pen, we tighten certain muscles so that the angle between upper and lower arm decreases. When things go wrong, perhaps injury or accident, this can change the innate design or halt it altogether. Give posture training so that physio is more effective. Ultimately, natural easy movement returns in full. And so, no harmful ‘use’ habits form, laying the ground for future pain.

Young people are quick to learn and more capable than most people of realizing how they ‘work’.  The powerful Alexander Technique is an investment in the life of your child.

Gaining effortless self growth,
  • A normal happy child re-emerges
  • everything functions well…..
  • breathing, digestion, circulation
  • skeletal joints operate easily and gradually free up from pain
