What is it?
A proven approach to pain relief, self-care, and skills improvement, the Alexander Technique (AT) is a method that people of all ages and abilities can learn to relieve the pain and stress caused by everyday misuse of the body. The Technique has been used all over the world for more than a century, by people from all walks of life, from famous people to musicians with RSI or tendinitis, to computer users and athletes with chronic back problems.
|F.M. Alexander (1869-1955)|
Practicing and teaching the Alexander Technique gives me a constant source of healthy well-being, freedom, clear direction, strength, graceful poise, lightheartedness, confidence, self-control, better technical skills, energy, curiosity, and happiness! I began taking lessons for chronic neck pain, and I continue to explore the Technique by myself and with others because I love how it makes me feel. I love to teach because I love to bring this sense of happiness and freedom to others!
