Free Yourself from Back Pain with the Alexander Technique’ is a practical and straightforward guide to the Alexander Technique.

It is designed to provide helpful advice, tips and further information to accompany a back pain sufferer’s actual lessons. Noel Kingsley gives clear explanations of the principles of the technique and how to apply them to daily life. The book teaches us to develop an awareness of poise, making us conscious of how we are moving to avoid strain and back pain. Chapters include the origins of Alexander Technique, types of back pain, the importance of good posture, becoming aware of our movements, ‘thinking’ not ‘doing’, bending and carrying, and releasing tension. Colour photography and illustrations accompany the informative and lively text to clearly convey new and healthy ways of moving. If you’ve ever suffered from back pain or muscular tension, this is the book for you.

Noel Kingsley’s is well known for his books and this is the first truly comprehensive and accessible book about the Technique that I have ever seen. I found the book clear, well illustrated and easy to understand.It really brings home how the Alexander Technique can help with back pain. The photos are great, and show clearly how easy it is to put unnecessary pressure on the muscles and skeleton just by doing something as simple as picking up the shopping. An excellent book to have on your bookshelf.

  1. I’ve never tried it but I think it’s just because I am tired of trying new things and ending up in pain. Only last week when I had a day at the Spa with the girls, I pulled a disc in my spine from swimming as I have to swim side ways because of my neck fusion.It still hurts to cough and sometimes breath so I do have to be very careful.
