What is the Alexander Technique?

The Alexander Technique is a 120-year-old method that focuses on psycho-physical re-education.  We help students identify harmful patterns of neuromuscular tension that run deep beneath conscious awareness.  With hands-on guidance, we help the student release out of these patterns that cause excessive strain and chronic pain over time. ​ 

The principles of the Alexander Technique can be applied to any activity to better your posture, relieve aches and pains, and reduce joint stiffness while sustainably improving overall functioning.  My job as an Alexander technician is to encourage ease in the head, neck, and back with non-invasive, hands-on guidance, and verbal instruction.  We will work together on a process of thinking that can help you take this improved co-ordination in movement and into your day-to-day life. ​​

A typical Alexander lesson focuses on improving how we walk, sit and stand, breathe, or speak by teaching how to move as one integrated whole.  

Since the Alexander Technique focuses on improving your overall coordination, it can be applied to any activity or art form to facilitate your performance and maximize efficiency.

Psycho-physical re-education has been known to help with a number of conditions including; chronic back and neck pain, Parkinson's disease, joint stiffness, breathing, anxiety, repetitive stress injuries, and stage fright to name just a few.  The Mayo Clinic has offered the Alexander Technique as part of its health and wellness program. It has been endorsed by a Nobel Laureate and medical professionals and is a required study in many of the top-performing arts schools in the world.
