Here's what my students are saying!
Sara gave me a powerful introduction to the Alexander technique that has helped me in the weeks beyond our session. It has helped curtail my chronic stiff neck. Sara is very intuitive and got right to the core of my bad posture and the way I carry myself to show me ways I can help myself through awareness of small movement. This has shifted my attitude about myself towards the positive. I realize that I can improve in little stages that can make a big difference. Sara also gave me valuable images that help in integrating these new ways of moving into a new practice.

Here is what Doctors Say about The Alexander Technique
“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. In 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, Neurosugical Group of Westchester, White Plains, NY
“Lessons in the Alexander Technique taught me how to sit in a state of lumbrosacral poise, and my chronic low back pain gradually became cured. The Technique is true education. Compared to surgery (e.g. for low back pain or for chronic obstructive lung disease) a course of instruction is inexpensive.”
- John H. M. Austin, MD, Professor of Radiology; Chief, Division of Radiology, Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, New York, NY
“The Alexander Technique makes sense in that appropriate use of the body will lead to reduction of various musculoskeletal disorders and remediate others which are established. No equipment is needed, just he skill and training of the teacher. This technique is very worthwhile as a primary preventative therapy. It is especially useful when posture is a key factor in back injuries while lifting and for workers who perform repetitive tasks while sitting.”
- Robert D. Greene, MD, Emergency Department, Norwalk Hospital, Norwalk, CT
“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.”
