What is an Alexander Technique Teacher?

A qualified teacher of the Technique will help you achieve better health and wellbeing.  At Bradley Stoke Physio & Health, Susie will do this through supporting you to become more self aware and mindful, and enhancing your ability to discover and make changes for a happier and healthier life for you.  She can help you re-educate your body and mind to promote a pain-free, stress-free way of being. Under Susie's guidance in one-to-one lessons, the effects of the Alexander Technique can be very powerful as you are involved, body and mind, every step of the way.

What can Alexander Technique help you with?

 As an "Art of Running" coach, Susie has a particular interest in using Alexander Technique to enable runners to run more efficiently and effectively.  As such, Susie is a core member of our Sports Injury & Performance team.  Susie can help you through:

  • Running MOT: using a side-on slow motion video of yourself running outside to help you identify how you could develop an easier, more efficient, running style
  • Running Sessions: a more intensive session looking at improving your running performance through changing habits that may be causing you injury, pain, muscle tension or mobility problems, and by optimising your balance, posture and co-ordination 

How does Alexander Technique work?

Alexander Technique works because it empowers you to help yourself.  Lessons at Bradley Stoke Physio & Health are one-to-one, giving you the attention needed to help you improve the connection between your thoughts and what you physically do.

Susie will give you verbal and hands-on guidance during your lessons. Over time you will learn to observe yourself and be much more aware of how you are using your body. This will help you change unhelpful habitual patterns and replace them with good ones for better postural health and natural movement.
