Essential reading for everyone who wants to take responsibility for improving their lives
on 2 September 2007
The Alexander Technique works on so many levels that it can be quite tricky to explain what it is and how it works to the non-initiated. Joe Searby's book does this extremely well. The chapters are short, succinct, cleverly divided up allowing readers to quickly grasp how relevant the technique is to virtually every aspect of our lives.
Once people start learning the technique, the benefits are immediately palpable, so the difficulty lies in getting people to take it up in the first place - especially in a world full of osteos, physios, and a whole host of other hands on manipulative / massaging therapies. I think this book goes a long way to encourage people to take that initial step of 'the first lesson'.
