“I am a physical therapist and a teacher of the Alexander Technique with 50 years of experience working with people in pain and in need of rehabilitation. My AT practice is focused on the management of pain and stress. My professional experience tells me that the Alexander Technique is both a profound and an effective approach to maintain health and well-being. I now focus most of my time on mentoring teachers and training new teachers.”
