I’m Mireille, and I run backtoactive, teaching the Alexander Technique. This is a gentle, detailed approach to how you move and react. We often hold excessive muscular tension, due to stress, or habits in our ways of moving, or sitting or standing. This can exacerbate pain, interfere with easy movement, and contribute to anxiety.
I can show you how to reduce this unnecessary muscular effort and help you establish better habits, to take care of yourself for the long term. You won’t have to use special equipment or do exercises, it’s just about putting a bit more thought into what you do , so that you can optimise how you use your body and learn how to react better to stress FIND OUT MORE HERE.
Many treatments help pain temporarily, but Alexander Technique is different. It helps you change for the long term, and because it is something you learn rather than is done to you, it puts you in control of your well being.
Alexander Technique was shown to be effective in reducing pain and increasing function in back pain in a large NHS funded trial see results here.
Whatever the reason, be it pain, a chronic condition or just because you have got out of the habit, you can lose confidence in your body to be active and do the things you enjoy. Your life can end up being limited by pain or fatigue. I can help you build up capacity so you can do the important things in your life.

Alexander Technique is not about special exercises or equipment – its something you apply to everyday life. Enjoy everyday activities or sports by optimising the way you use your body. Whatever your hobby or sport I can help you build the skills and confidence to do it again, or to do it better, and with less effort!
I highly recommend you give the Alexander Technique a try. I was sceptical when asked to give it a go, but it is brilliant, very relaxing & very helpful for releasing all the tensions of life. Mireille was very explanatory in what she wanted me to do. I came away feeling very much better & was looking forward to our next session. Well worth trying.
