I am also a teacher of the Alexander Technique. The Alexander Technique is not a massage modality. It is essentially a somatic re-education technique that addresses postural habits and unnecessary excess muscle tension helping one to achieve more ease and poise in life’s daily activities. Because the intent of the Technique, where one remains clothed, is to impart a new kinesthetic awareness, a session is called a lesson and is an active and mentally engaging experience as compared to the passive experience of massage. The Technique and its cultivated awareness facilitates the use of myself in such a way that requires the least amount of overall muscular tension. This ease is communicated through touch whether it be in a massage or an Alexander Technique lesson. For more information on the Alexander Technique and lessons click here.
