You're under pressure, the phone is ringing, there are e-mails to send and meetings to attend; posture is the last thing you think about. The body is not made for sitting at a desk for 40 hours a week and 49 per cent of working adults suffer back pain as a consequence.
This practical book offers easy and effective solutions to posture problems at work and at home, with illustrated exercises based on the Alexander technique to help you break bad habits and learn to relax your body.
First developed by the actor Frederick Alexander in 1890, the Alexander technique retrains the body to work in a more economical and less stressful way. The techniques can be used for improved breathing, freedom of the joints and staying calm under pressure.
The Well-tuned Body will change the way you stand, walk and sit, eliminating those painful stiff necks and backaches for a healthier life. You will not only be free of back pain but will move more easily and look more youthful, taller and slimmer.
