What is Alexander Technique?

The Alexander Technique is a unique tool of self-management that offers you independence in maintaining your health, and teaches you to use your body efficiently and economically.

Unlike relaxation therapies or massage, the Alexander Technique is utilized when you are active. It offers you a chance to discover your habitual reactions to stimuli, to suspend them, and to have a choice in your responses. The Alexander Technique teaches you to calm your nervous system, release your muscles and balance your structure.
