The Alexander Technique: What it is, How it Works

The Alexander Technique helps to release patterns of thought and movement causing stress, poor posture, tension, or injury. With gentle hands-on, visuals and directions, you begin to recognize and stop habits that diminish you. This enables you to experience new ways to think and move in your body with more comfort and ease.

The Alexander Technique is a form of neuromuscular re-education that stimulates, defines and connects us to healthy ways of living. Spiritually, physically, emotionally and mentally it brings a centered sense of peace, joy, self-connection, confidence and renewed vitality.

When called upon, a dynamic action distributes the right amount of muscle tension throughout our body. This provides us with a strong, balanced and graceful way of moving in our daily activities at work or play. The Alexander Technique is a simple powerful method allowing everyone to function at a high level of performance and optimum health.
