RSI or Repetitive Strain Injury goes by many names: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tendonitis, Occupational Overuse syndrome, Tenosynovitis and many others. It’s a huge and growing problem which can seriously affect people’s quality of life and their careers.
The Alexander Technique has been helping people to prevent RSI for over 120 years and I’m going to share 3 practical tips with you that you can use when you’re working at your desk

"By bringing your attention back to the way that you are using yourself in a general sense, you then have the chance to find the root cause of the discomfort rather than just treating the symptom."

In this video, I will give you 3 simple tips that you can use when working at a desk to help prevent RSI.  If you are already experiencing symptoms, these tips will hopefully help to decrease and maybe even stop the pain.  

This video follows on from my previous ones about improving sitting posture, stopping shoulder pain and working at a desk so I’ve made a playlist for those which I’ll link to in the video and description.
