Alexander Technique Testimonials

“I found the Alexander Technique after suffering from neck, shoulder, and lower back pain for over 10 years. Since my lessons began, I feel more in tune, more aware of how my body reacts to the environment and am gaining more control of my body and mind. I leave each class lighter, brighter, and happier. I like to think of my true self “emerging.” As I let go of positions of fear, I am renewed with a sense of confidence and joy. I am grateful for this transforming experience, and I enthusiastically recommend The Alexander Technique to everyone I know.”

“The Alexander Technique nables people to get better and stay better longer. This is undoubtedly the best way to take care of the back and alleviate pain. By teaching people better body mechanics, it frequently enables patients to do away with pain.”

Jack Stern, M.D., Ph.D.

“The Alexander Technique has shown very striking improvements in such diverse things as high blood pressure, breathing, depth of sleep, overall cheerfulness, mental alertness, and resilience against outside pressure. Many types of under-performance and ailments, both mental and physical, can be alleviated, sometimes to a surprising extent, by teaching the body musculature to function differently.”

Dr. Nikolas Tinbergen

“Halfway though my first lesson, the shooting pain down my arms that had plagued me for months disappeared! Weeks before, when my chiropractor told me that my pain was ‘postural’, I really panicked. All my life people have told me that my posture was bad, but no matter how hard I tried to ‘stand up straight’ I could never do it for more than a minute. Studying Alexander Technique immediately gave me better use of my body and I have enjoyed better posture and many health benefits–including the complete disappearance of my chronic back pain and tension. And, to top it off, the lessons are supportive, pleasant and relaxing.”
