Prevention is Better Than Cure

We all know in theory that “Prevention is better than cure”, but do we have a practical understanding (or a cultural understanding, for that matter) of how to prevent future problems from occurring in the first place?

The Alexander Technique is primarily preventive. Just like you change the oil in your car and take it to scheduled maintenance, the Alexander Technique is a way to prevent yourself from developing bad habits that would go on compounding over time. If the Alexander Technique reduces the number of days in pain by 86% after 24 lessons, and 80% of Americans will suffer from back pain at some point — why wait until you’re in pain? Learn to take better care of yourself now, and keep the doctor away later!
