FM Alexander used to insist on his clients coming to see him 5 days a week for 6 weeks, total of 30 lessons. My partner Walter is the only other person in my household and therefore the only person I can put hands on, so…. lucky Walter is getting much more frequent than usual Alexander Lessons/Sessions (same thing) and we will see how this works out for him.

The Ehlers-Danlos Society has published an article on the many benefits the Alexander Technique offer people with Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (which include hypermobility).

The Alexander Technique also helps to avoid hyper extension, facilitates good posture and provides the kind of toning up of the musculature which help to support the joints.
