The Alexander Technique was developed in Australia by Frederick Matthias Alexander at the end of the 19th century. Since then the Alexander Technique has helped thousands of people around the world to discover better coordination and balance. With it comes improved health, wellbeing and freedom from pain. Our Alexander Technique service is provided by Katrin MacLean.
The Alexander Technique helps pupils learn to become conscious of harmful, habitual tensions throughout the body and how to release them. In the process pupils often experience the kind of freedom of movement they had as children. Those who learn this life skill can go about their daily activities with greater ease and efficiency. Often they are able to cope better with stressful situations and making choices. Using this service following chiropractic treatments can help support you to manage the prevention of back and joint pain and the recurrence of debilitating and chronic conditions.
Katrin MacLean completed her three year training to become an Alexander Technique teacher in Berlin where she lived for five years. As a regular patient at Yeovil Chiropractic Clinic, Katrin became interested in the Technique as a means of helping prevent her own back and shoulder pain. In the process, Katrin became fascinated by the way that thought and movement are inextricably linked and by the way that this connection, when consciously employed, can allow the body to ‘do the right thing’ and to expand – instead of limit – what we can learn and accomplish.
Katrin is a member of STAT, the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique.
