Alexander Technique for neck pain is something you can experience by booking a lesson with a qualified, experienced teacher. However, finding that teacher can be difficult, as there are many people providing this service. Read on to discover the five things you need to look out for.
The first thing you need to do is find an Alexander Technique teacher that has done the necessary training. There are a lot of people that claim to be teachers, yet they have only read a book or two, they haven’t done the appropriate three-year training course. Secondly, you should look on the Internet for publications made by the teacher. Teachers should be passionate about Alexander Technique lessons, and you should be able to find articles, case studies, and journals written by them. Read a few of these and see if you like what they have to say. The next factor is experience. You don’t want to be the teacher’s practice project. You want to be safe in the knowledge that they have helped many people time and time before. The fourth thing you should factor in is your relationship with the teacher. Of course, this will become apparent mostly after your first lesson. Did you feel comfortable and at ease? If not, it may be wise to look elsewhere. Finally, the teacher should have a good reputation. Make sure that there are positive reviews online that have been left by past clients. This will give you peace of mind.
