  • “Taking lessons of the Alexander technique with Alain has quite simply transformed my life … It works. A definite lessening of back pain, my thinking has changed, and I continue each day to be surprised by the wonder of the Alexander Technique. The best part is that he encourages his students to realize that the freedom we gain through him is at our fingertips at any moment through our attention to our use and our thinking.”

  • “Alain is patient and insightful. Alain was quickly able to help me with the neck pain and I slowly began to learn how I had been causing so much of my pain without even realizing it. For so long I had been using my muscles to brace myself against any movement that may hurt me. The lessons with Alain have helped me to live much more freely in my own body and, very important to me, with a lot less pain. Oh! And the lessons have been so much fun. We laugh all the time because of his French accent! ”

Testimonials from Health Care Professionals.

  • “The Alexander Technique stresses unification in an era of greater and greater medical specialization. Its educational system teaches people how to best use their bodies in ordinary action to avoid or reduce unnecessary stress and pain. It enables clients to get better faster and stay better longer. This is undoubtedly the best way to take care of the back and alleviate back pain.”
    Jack Stern, MD, PhD, Neurosurgical Group of Westchester, White Plains, NY
  • “I recommend people to the Alexander Technique who have not improved with traditional rehabilitative therapies. Part of their pain may be due to posture and the improper use of their bodies. Many people who have neck or back pain and have gone through heat, ultrasound and massage with no relief can be helped by learning the Alexander Technique. It definitely works. Nothing works for everyone, as one well-versed in using physical therapy and biofeedback, I know how valuable this technique is.
    I highly recommend it.”

  • “The Alexander Technique remains the best of the self-care strategies to prevent the sequel of poor posture and poor breathing”
