Transform Your Journey to Well-being with the Alexander Technique

Guided by James Crow, Expert in Pain Reduction and Posture Enhancement

Experience the transformative power of the Alexander Technique with James Crow, a dedicated and experienced teacher based in Stockport and Manchester. Our method, lauded in the British Medical Journal, offers you a chance to halve your pain in just six sessions.

You’ll improve your posture, reduce pain, and enhance your overall well-being.

The Alexander Technique has been proven to reduce your pain by half in as little as six sessions (source: British Medical Journal), with results that last the test of time.

So how does it work? Have you ever noticed how you’re sitting right now? 

Is your back straight, or are you slouched over? How about your breathing?

Is it shallow or deep?

Our bodies speak a language of their own, and understanding this language can unlock a world of well-being and vitality. This is where the Alexander Technique comes in.

The Alexander Technique is a revolutionary approach that teaches us to transform our everyday activities into opportunities for self-improvement. Named after Frederick Matthias Alexander, this method encourages us to release unnecessary muscular and mental tension. It’s a simple yet profound technique that promotes better posture, less strain, and more freedom of movement.

Think of the Alexander Technique as a kind of body mindfulness. It’s about being present in the moment and aware of how we use our bodies. It’s about moving with grace and ease, not force and effort. It’s about unlearning harmful habits and relearning how to move naturally.

One of the most significant benefits of the Alexander Technique is pain relief. By learning to move in a more relaxed and efficient way, we can alleviate the aches and pains that come from poor posture or repetitive strain. It’s like giving your body a much-needed tune-up. Improved posture is another key benefit.

The Alexander Technique teaches us how to sit, stand, and move in ways that are kind to our bodies. This not only makes us look taller and more confident but also helps prevent injury and promotes overall health. But the Alexander Technique doesn’t just benefit our bodies. It also benefits our minds. It enhances performance by helping us stay focused and alert. It increases mindfulness by teaching us to pay attention to how we move and how those movements make us feel.

In summary, the Alexander Technique is a holistic method that can improve your life in many ways. It can relieve pain, improve posture, enhance performance, and increase mindfulness. It’s a gentle, non-invasive approach that can make a big difference in your health and well-being.

So, why not give it a try?

Start by noticing how you’re sitting right now. Is your back straight? Are your shoulders relaxed? Are you breathing deeply? Remember, every moment is an opportunity for self-improvement. Every movement is a chance to practice the Alexander Technique. And every day is a step towards a healthier, happier you.

About Alexander Technique Teacher James

My Story

Pain and bad posture at work, using a laptop, were making my life a misery.

Then I discovered a GP in Leicester who showed me the Alexander Technique.

Straight away I was hooked!

I quickly took back control of my own posture, instead of relying on other people to fix me.

My pain levels vanished and I started to live life to the full.

Now I help others enjoy learning this life-changing method – it’s the best move I ever made.

I love being my own boss, and seeing the transformation of my clients from pain to freedom.

You can’t beat it!

What My Happy Clients Say

Treated by everyone...

I found James after I had been treated by everyone (or it seemed like it) for a frozen shoulder. I knew that I didn’t want to have to go through that experience again and I recognised I needed to pay attention to my body and relieve it of the tension and misuse I had been subjecting it to for years. AT is working for me and therefore, I highly recommend James to you. Once you have learnt the technique and with continuous personal practice you can have a valuable tool for life.

I’m very happy to say it had gone completely

“I first went to James Crow in August 2011 because of severe neck and shoulder pain. I felt like I’d seized up! The problem had developed after I had quite a big operation in March 2011 on a major muscle in my back. I’d had physio at the hospital but was left with these problems. Within a few weeks the pain was starting to lessen, and I’m very happy to say it had gone completely within three months” Lindsay Tipper, Baby Sensory

Highly recommended!

“I have seen significant improvements in my posture and, as a result, the back problems I have experienced for several years.  Additionally, working in a role which involves a great deal of public speaking, I have used my Alexander practice to help me in maintaining focus and positive body language during pressurized situations at work.  Highly recommended!” Paul Walsh, manchester Metropolitan University

I will always be grateful

“I think I am very fortunate to have found James Crow to instruct me in the Alexander Technique. I went for help with my chronic headaches and low back pain, which have improved significantly. However I have also found a great insight into my body and my mind and into the relationship between them. This was very unexpected. After just a few sessions I have learned how to look after myself better and for this I will always be grateful.” Dr Brian Goodall, GP (retired)

I have had NO PAIN in my hips!!!

“I am one of your clients from the Wilmslow clinic. I seriously can not believe what I am writing to you here…. from Friday I have had NO PAIN in my hips!!! I have slept through the night with no pain disturbing me, no shooting pains in either hip. How can this be so soon and to be honest I dont know what you did, but it seems to have worked so far. AMAZING…… cant wait for more treatment on the rest of me now!” June Bailey, Weight Watchers Leader

Sleeping much better again

“I was suffering from back pain, particularly whilst cooking, playing the piano or sitting at the computer. There has been a remarkable improvement since going to James. Understanding the basic principles of the Alexander Technique has made it possible for me to stand or sit without the constant nagging pain I had become accustomed to. In addition to the huge benefits received from the lessons, they are relaxed and fun. I’m also sleeping much better again.” ElainNaylor, Musician
