Welcome to the Alexander Technique 
You can reduce stress and relieve pain...

 

AT gives you an improved sense of well-being, increased relaxation, coordination, ease of movement, heightened muscle strength, increased flexibility, enhanced equilibrium, decreased physical tension and stress, and improved sensory awareness.

The rewards can be deep and far-reaching. Many students often achieve greater control over themselves and the events in their daily lives. They often cultivate an increase in powers of observation and develop a much sharper sense of self-awareness.

What Is It?

 

The Alexander Technique (AT) is a practical, holistic self-help method. The way you use your body affects your daily activities. By changing how you think about movement, you can go through your day with the least amount of tension necessary.
