Alexander Technique (personal impressions)

bullet1 Before A.T.

bullet2 ...or at least

I wish at least as I was 19 I had been advised to do something more than quietly accept my destiny.

Yes, phisiotherapy was recomended and I did not follow it very strongly but I was left under the impression I could actually do nothing except accept my sad destiny and learn to live with it.

And indeed as long as I followed my instructions on how to sit (straight back chairs and not "slumping"), how to lift weights and how to better have sex (always a good party joke) I could live with it and rarely had pains, at least not so much as before.

Actually the pains kept growing slowly and I got slowly used to them until they became permanent: 24 hours per day, 365 days per year!...
