“In this study, 579 subjects with chronic and recurrent back pain were randomized to receive massage, 6 Alexander Technique lessons, 24 Alexander Technique lessons, or no intervention. In addition, half of the subjects were encouraged to walk regularly. A year later, the group with no intervention had 21 days of pain per month. The group with massage had 14 days of pain per month. The group with 6 Alexander Technique lessons reported 11 days of pain per month, and the group with 24 Alexander Technique lessons reported just 3 days of pain per month.
