Daryl runs occasional courses in the Alexander Technique for people with Hearing Loss at City Lit in London. These sessions have hearing equipment available to ensure that nothing is missed by attendees and address specific issues regarding hearing loss.
Most commonly known as an intervention for back or neck pain, the technique can also be useful in improving balance and posture, as well as alleviating stress. In addition, it can also help with underlying issues concerning confidence in social situations, improving attentiveness (useful when lipreading) and identifying postural twists when straining to hear.
An assistive hearing induction loop system is available on the day. These courses are not currently delivered in BSL (British Sign Language).
If you have a hearing loss and are interested in learning how to apply the Alexander Technique, please get in touch to discuss.
