How can the Alexander Technique help

Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time when a woman’s body and mind undergo significant changes. The physical changes caused by a growing baby alters the way the body moves and can potentially create aches and pains never experienced before  such as sciatica, lower back pain, repetitive strain and heartburn. Postural imbalances can often be exacerbated throughout pregnancy, increasing the likelihood of problems. Daily activities like walking, standing, sitting and sleeping can become compromised and together with psychological changes it can be a great deal to navigate.

Alexander Technique and PregnancyThe Alexander Technique will help you come to terms with how your body is changing and support you to develop useful postural habits to allow you to move as freely as possible. You will also reduce stress levels by learning to release muscular tension and unwind effectively. All of this is invaluable preparation for labour and life beyond with a new baby.
