Alexander for Medical Imaging Professionals
- Have you experienced some pain as a result of your work?
- Perhaps you, or your colleagues, may even have had to take time off sick with RSI?
- Maybe, you know someone who has had to resign with a career-ending injury?
I was one of those colleagues.
Pain does not need to be an inevitable by-product of your chosen profession.
How do I know this? From very personal experience. I suffered for years with Chronic RSI as a sonographer, which led to me ultimately resigning the profession that I loved. I then discovered the Alexander Technique, retrained as a teacher and learnt that it was how I was performing my duties that led to my injury. My personal postural and movement habits were not natural, and I learnt that in fact my shoulder was not weak, but I was incorrectly using my shoulders, arms and neck. In fact, I was abusing my whole body without realising it. The shoulder and neck pain was my body’s way of trying to tell me that it could no longer support my habitual choice of movement, and that I needed to change these patterns. At the time, I didn’t understand the messages my body was communicating. Now I understand! And I am now delighted to teach my medical colleagues how to effectively Self Care in clinical practice so that they can continue with their careers and enjoy their work again. And best of all, knowing what to do to help themselves prevent injury and recover from those already sustained.
Please let me help you! I am passionate about teaching Alexander’s Technique to Medical Imaging professionals. I can show you the simple practical ways to enable you to perform your Medical Imaging Clinical duties with ease.
