“The Alexander Technique stresses unification in an era of greater and greater medical specialization. Its educational system teaches people how to best use their bodies in ordinary action to avoid or reduce unnecessary stress and pain. It enables clients to get better faster and stay better longer. This is undoubtedly the best way to take care of the back and alleviate back pain.”
“I first tried Alexander technique because I knew it was something singers did to help free up the voice. What I didn’t anticipate was the impact it would have on my entire life; I have found that along with the alignment of the body comes the alignment of spirit, as well. Problems with back pain that have stumped me for years are resolving as I learn how to use myself differently and more effectively…I am addressing the cause of my ailments–as opposed to treating the symptoms–by re-patterning my habitual, every day movements. I have made tremendous progress in my vocal technique, and I attribute a lot of that progress to my Alexander work; the relationship between my head, neck, and back has changed so that I no longer hold the same kind of tension in those areas where freedom is crucial. My awareness of my body has changed, and my body itself has changed through this work.
