What’s the Alexander Technique?

 

Origin of the Technique

The Alexander Technique was developed by F.M. Alexander, a Shakespearean actor from Tasmania in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. During his acting career, Alexander began to experience chronic voice loss whenever performing. When the best doctors were unable to help him, F.M. set out to find a way to overcome the problem on his own, ultimately leading to a discovery that excess tension throughout his body was the cause of his vocal issues.

Through a process of trial and error, Alexander was able to develop a manner of using his mind and body with far less effort and strain, thus leading to the cessation of his vocal problems.

F.M. began teaching others his technique and soon found that it was helping his students immensely through a wide variety of health concerns. For the remainder of his life, Alexander taught in both England and the U.S., passing on his discovery to students who would travel from around the world to work with him.*

 The Alexander Technique is currently being taught as part of the curriculum at (amongst other):

New York University, Hunter College, NYC, The Juillard School, NYC, The Mannes College of Music, NYC, Circle in the Square theatre School, NYC, Boston University, American Conservatory Theatre, San Francisco, Los Angeles Philharmonic Institute, London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, London, Royal College of Music, London, Guildhall School of Music & Drama, London, The Actors Center, London.

Back pain study

There is strong evidence for impressive long-term benefits from Alexander Technique lessons for people with chronic low back pain in a major study published in the British Medical Journal.

Patients who undertook 24 lessons had a remarkable 86% reduction in days of pain each month, even 12 months after lessons were completed.

6 lessons reduced the number of days of pain by more than 50%. cf link below

Alexander lesson


What to expect during an Alexander lesson.

I give 45 minute private lessons on the Upper Westside of Manhattan. You will not undress, you will spend a very relaxing time on a massage table receiving hands on guidance and verbal instructions. You’ll will also stand, sit and move to stimulate and recondition your posture and Use.

During lessons, we will explore your postural habits and you will gain a greater self-awareness. You’ll learn how to use less muscular and mental strain and deepen mind-body-emotion. You’ll regain a natural optimal use of the whole self and a more efficient mechanical use of your body structure.

Recommended sessions’ frequency is once a week. To start, a minimum of 30 lessons is advised, because this is a cumulative process. The duration of the cycle of lessons depends on your goals and is adjustable to your unique needs.
