There are still a limited number of spaces available on a new interactive practical workshop for mammographers, which teaches improved posture and movement and helps relieve tension.
Led by practitioners accredited by the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique, the session will help participants to be more aware of body positioning to correct poor posture and to move more efficiently.
Teachers of the technique believe it helps to relieve excess tension and relieves problems such as back pain,neck ache, sore shoulders and other musculoskeletal problems.
The workshop is an introduction to the Alexander Technique, its application to working as a mammographer and specific back and lower and upper limb misuse.
The event will take place on 14 May 2015 at SCoR HQ in London.
Upon completion of the workshop, attendees will:
• Have an understanding of the Alexander principle that the way you ‘use’ yourself influences how you function in everyday life as well as at work.
• Recognise patterns of posture and movement, which may be causing excessive tension, aches and pains, restricted movement, stiff joints, etc.
• Recognise the importance of adopting a better postural support for amore efficient use of the body.
• Learn to apply the technique’s principles to daily tasks and gain coping skills for stressful work patterns.
