Alexander Technique Science

This site is devoted to improving scientific understanding of the Alexander Technique (AT)—its principles, practices, reported and demonstrated benefits, and terminology. The content ranges from descriptions of direct experiments on the effects of AT lessons to focused explanations of relevant current science to rigorously researched history of the work. We reference recent peer-reviewed publications wherever possible.

As scientific methods, models, and cross-disciplinary research improve, science is becoming increasingly relevant to AT. Current science is quite exciting and has a lot to contribute to our understanding of AT. Scientists are also now studying AT directly. There is evidence supporting some of AT’s possible mechanisms and claimed benefits.
