  • Health Care - Wellness

The Alexander Technique teaches people how to undo poor habits of posture and movement. F. M. Alexander developed his Technique in the 1920s and had, as his devotees, many of the intelligentsia of the day; John Dewey, Aldous Huxley, George Bernard Shaw, to name a few. Aldous Huxley saw the Technique as opening a door of perception as one opens an awareness of one’s personal habits of movement.

We all have habits of movement. The Technique asks each person to shine a light on the unique way that they move together with providing and encouraging important ways of improving that movement. The benefits are enormous. The Technique improves balance, appearance, performance, and ease in performing everyday tasks. The Alexander Technique is particularly helpful in the areas of posture and pain relief. It is a totally non-invasive, non-drug way to ease the pain in your body, and to improve your movement, performance and appearance.

“The Alexander Technique helped a long standing back problem and to get a good night’s sleep after many years of tossing and turning”-Paul Newman, actor.
“The Alexander Technique really works”- Roald Dahl, author.
