Welcome To ISSTIP, The International Society for the Study of Tension in Performance

We are a UK originated organisation with active members worldwide.
ISSTIP aims to study and enhance awareness on the various physical and psychological problems of the performing artists.

ISSTIP provides its work through seminars and conferences, regular publications, courses, research and collaboration with specialised clinics.

ISSTIP's greatest concern is the increased number of performers around the world who are suffering from physical or psychological dysfunctions. Musicians who may have experienced disorders or injuries such as repetition strain injury, tendinitis, focal dystonia, depression or performance anxiety as well as problems involving voice, hearing or joints can get advice.  We can help you understand the causes for these conditions such as stress, over working, unhealthy technique or wrong posture as well as other factors that are easily overlooked.
