I had tried many things to relieve my bad back, but without lasting
knew enough from my time working in hospitals that I wanted to avoid
surgery. So began my involvement with The Alexander Technique, first
taking lessons and working to overcome my own back pain, then

benefit and pleasure as it has me.
If you are here for information on AT, read about it on
The Alexander Technique page
