The Alexander technique (AT) is a tool for patient self-management. AT is an educational approach to improving functional patterns of posture and movement during everyday activities. Training in AT principles helps patients develop a better self-orienting way of thinking that is then combined with whatever they are doing in their daily lives. Adaptive Alexander-based programs show clients how to choose functional patterns that promote optimal postural tone. This helps them increase motor self-management and enhances their independence and overall quality of life. Training in AT principles fundamentally develops the individual's overall ability to make mindful choices about how to respond to the stressors of life, whether they are psychological or physiological in origin.
This workshop will clarify the role of the AT specialist in enhancing a patient's ability to be a more active, skilled partner in both preventative and rehabilitative care while increasing the potential for increased benefit from all care team interventions.
