Chance for Lichfield residents to learn about the Alexander Technique

backA Lichfield event is aiming to help people cope with back pain at work and raise awareness of a technique for coping with the problem. 

The event is being hosted by Christine Rapley as part of International Alexander Awareness Week and Back Care Awareness Week which takes place from October 10-18.

Christine, who is a local teacher of the Alexander Technique and a professional afflilate member of the organisation Back Care, has organised the free drop-in information session on October 10 from 2pm-4pm.

The sessions will have two elements as Christine explained:

“I will be available to chat about the Alexander Technique and there will be a display of leaflets concerned with back pain and the Alexander Technique. I will give a short informal talk called Learn to Change for the Better at 2.15pm and another short talk called Work It Out! Preventing and Managing Back Pain at Work at 3.15pm.

“People may be aware of the benefits of the Alexander Technique and the major clinical research that was published last August in the British Medical Journal showing how the Technique can help people with chronic back pain. The benefits of this revolutionary method are not, however, limited to back pain and the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT) is spreading the word on the changes the Alexander Technique can bring in life.”

The drop-in session takes place in the Ashmole Room of the Lichfield Guildhall.
