Jane Baker – Alexander Technique

Qualifications: Member of STAT (Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique)

Jane trained as an Alexander Technique (AT) practitioner at the Brighton Alexander Technique college in 2005. She was inspired to complete the 3-year training course when AT gave her long-lasting relief for the chronic neck and shoulder pain that was making work unbearable.

The Alexander Technique is an effective method for changing the habits that contribute to functional problems such as back pain, muscle tension, poor posture and breathing problems. AT is also a useful tool to help minimise the impact of stress and anxiety. From the first session you can begin to apply it to your everyday life, work and leisure activities.

The BMJ trial in 2008 found The Alexander Technique to have long term benefits for people with chronic low back pain. Click here for details: Click here

The Alexander Technique is a self help technique that re-educates your body back into good postural habits by optimising the natural balance of the head, neck, and back. It increases your body awareness, improves natural movement and makes you more mindful. It improves your balance, coordination, and posture in everything you do, increasing your performance.

The Alexander Technique is a gentle, beneficial treatment for changing postural habits and is suitable for teenagers through to the elderly. It complements other disciplines and treatments. Both 1-2-1 and group classes are available.

“I first went to Jane in 2005 having experienced stiffness and pain down my left side from daily hours of commuting (driving) through slow traffic to get into West London. I had tried other therapies but the effects were short-lived sometimes to just hours even with repeated appointments. Nothing gave me the ability to manage the situation for myself.

I had heard of The Alexander Technique so when I searched online and found Jane close by I had to give it a go and find out. I wasn’t disappointed.

The relief I experienced on each of my first couple of sessions was quite profound and usually lasted a few days. I signed up for several courses of lessons each progressing me to the point where I was at last able to take control of the problem I was experiencing.

Jane is a calm and gentle practitioner and I would recommend her to anyone interested in finding out what the technique could do for them.

I still visit Jane periodically for top-up lessons and get a lot out of them. “

“ I was born with a minor and unnoticed scoliosis. Now that I am in my seventies there is some degeneration and consequently increasing back pain. This situation was not helped by very poor posture.

Jane’s Alexander Technique treatment has significantly improved my posture and effected a significant reduction in discomfort especially standing but also while sitting and walking.

I recommend anyone with back pain to contact Jane and see how the Alexander Technique might help. “
