    The cheapo (free) Vulgano Alexander Technique involves making the body as long as possible--keep your head as far from the nether regions as you can. Not exactly the same, of course, but does free the body up.

    This allows us to play our butts off!

    Does this mean you have to stand when you play?

    Just when you thought it was safe... Heeesssss back.

    This would not be typical of PE. I have checked many conventional medical references AND journal studies and muscle strain is rarely associated. Here is a run down of the most common symptoms related to PE:

    Symptoms related to PE as by percentages experienced by patients have been reported [Eur J Cardio-thorac Surg (1992) 6: 318-329] includes:

    Diminution in exercise tolerance (51.3%)
    Fatiguability (43%)
    Inability to take deep breaths (37.5%)
    Exertional shortness of breath (31.6%).
    Upper (26.3%) and lower respiratory tract infections (17.2%)
    Precordial chest pain (16.4%)
    Palpitations (13.2%)
    Dizziness (11.2%)
    Dysphagia and regurgitation (2.6%)

    Most complaints were not different for the sexes, only the inability to take deep breaths was significantly more frequent in female (P = 0.036). The presence of cardiorespiratory complaints was related to the severity of the deformity.


    I would agree with rowuks comments that generally refer to trumpet players. I think your situation is more likely to relate and respond to Dr. Ruwuk's recommendations.

    By "nether regions" I was thinking about our fannies--it works sitting.
