E.B., a young musician, used the Technique to help overcome back, shoulder and neck pain
Before trying Alexander Technique I had been really struggling for many months with pain in my lower back, shoulders and neck which I had thought were due to my scoliosis. A few lessons with Kay and I really noticed the difference! The pain in my lower back went and my shoulders and neck loosened up. Now I also know how to treat myself without needing to visit the physiotherapist or take medication.
As a harpist, I get a lot of stiffness in my shoulders and neck. Kay has taught me how to relax whilst playing and to be aware of the muscles I need to use. The tension has decreased, I am less tired and my playing has improved.
