Alexander Technique Computer Posture
Many of us sit at desks all day staring at computer screens. We often form a ‘C’ curve, making hinges in our spine where none exists. (The neck, and the lower back.) Your body presses down on these developing ‘hinges’.
Discs are being compressed causing lower back pain, and neck pain. The Alexander Technique helps your lower back decompress, lengthening the entire spine, providing lower back pain relief.
This decompression near the bottom is accomplished by decompressing at the top; the neck-head relationship. Let your neck free up so that your head moves up and away from the top of your spine, leading your entire spine into length. In opposition to the up, let your sit bones release down into the chair. You’re comfortably and sustainably going up and down, helping to relieve lower back pain.
Use the Alexander Technique to relieve lower back pain, neck tension, and more.
