Free Yourself from Back Pain is a practical and straightforward guide to the Alexander Technique. It is designed to provide helpful advice, tips and further information to accompany a back pain sufferer's actual lessons. Noël Kingsley gives clear explanations of the principles of the technique and how to apply them to daily life. The book teaches us to develop an awareness of poise, making us conscious of how we are moving to avoid strain and back pain. Chapters include the origins of Alexander Technique, types of back pain, the importance of good posture, becoming aware of our movements, 'thinking' not 'doing', bending and carrying, and releasing tension. Colour photography and illustrations accompany the informative and lively text to clearly convey new and healthy ways of moving. If you've ever suffered from back pain or muscular tension, this is the book for you.
Noël Kingsley, MSTAT, trained as a professional teacher of the Alexander Technique under Walter Carrington, a protégé of FM Alexander himself. After qualifying he built his own practice in central London, which he has run full-time since 1993.
