Alexander Technique Awareness Week runs from the 9th to the 18th of October to raise awareness of the technique internationally. The Irish Society of Alexander Technique Teachers is organising events across Ireland to coincide with this week.
Amongst the events happening around Ireland, Cork Alexander Technique (AT) Teachers will host a Family Open Day at the Unitarian Church, Princes Street, Cork on the Sunday 11th of October from 2pm to 5pm. AT Teachers will offer free treatments on the day and free family entertainment will be available. There is a special prize for the child in the best skeleton costume. A café market will be providing snacks and light refreshments and people will have the opportunity to avail of reduced price treatments when they attend on Sunday.
Significant long-term benefit from Alexander Technique lessons for low back pain has been demonstrated by a major study published by the British Medical Journal on 20th August 2008.
The Alexander Technique can also help you if:
- You suffer from repetitive strain injury or carpal tunnel syndrome.
- You have a backache or stiff neck and shoulders.
- You become uncomfortable when sitting at your computer for long periods of time.
- You are a singer, musician, actor, dancer or athlete and feel you are not performing at your full potential.
Actors, musicians, sportsmen use the technique to improve their performance, help them with stress and nerves and look after their posture. “The Alexander Technique helped a long-standing back problem and to get a good night’s sleep after many years of tossing and turning,” said Paul Newman, actor.
