Nikolaas Tinbergen, Nobel Laureate, devoted a significant portion of his Nobel lecture to talking about the Alexander Technique and its benefits. Included in the video are before and after slides of people who had Alexander lessons (the last minute or two).
“The Alexander Technique is a preventative measure applicable in any type of company (of any sector or size) where ergonomic or psychosocial risks have been detected. Practicing the Alexander Technique increases the worker’s perception and autonomy, bringing a control that is fluid and alive instead of rigid.”
“One to one lessons in the Alexander technique from registered teachers have long term benefits for patients with chronic back pain.”
“…benefits for the intervention group in postural sway, trends towards fewer falls and injurious falls and improved mobility among past multiple-fallers suggest further investigation of the Alexander Technique is warranted.”
