Hi thanks for your replies. I feel about 50% recovered to how I was before the alexander technique. It was a session by a alexander teacher who had been teaching the technique on people for 3 years. She was qualified and part of an alexander school. I did explain about my health and that I had an epley treatment some years ago that went wrong, leaving me with a very sore neck and shoulder.
I can see the technique would work for some people and what I have been taught to do on my own will be of some help. It was the guidance and manipulation by her ( the pushing and pulling on my neck and shoulders) that seemed to trigger the aches and pains.
Hopefully it will all go away soon, they are sensitive areas for me. I have had physiotherapy before and didn’t get any aches after.
I think if I got a book about the technique it could teach me more about good posture. There’s also videos on web about some of the techniques used.
