The Alexander Technique

The Alexander Technique is a simple and practical method by which people learn how to reduce unnecessary tension while going about their normal activities. Sitting, standing, using a computer, participating in athletics and performing all become easier when a person is free from the interference of excess physical tension. Alexander Technique teachers observe people engaged in their normal activities and use a combination of verbal instructions and light guiding touch to help them regain freedom of motion.
