What people say about the Alexander Technique experience




table work is deeply relaxing I came to Janis after consulting with three doctors and a chiropractor about my disabling neck pain. During the first lesson, Janis made a simple observation about my posture and taught me to correct it. I walked out feeling better than I had in months -- and that was just the beginning!

Where it really paid off was when I felt myself slipping on the ice. I knew I was going down and in that split second I was able to let myself go by thinking, “just let my knees bend and let go.” I fell and was not injured. I attribute avoiding the injury to my conscious awareness developed through my Alexander practice.

Since I began Alexander lessons I've had far fewer injuries and I have greater stamina.

Once I felt the relief of not pressing my head into my neck I asked Janis if she would walk with me all day long to sustain that great feeling. She told me I would learn to do it for myself...and, sure enough, I have. It is such a relief.

I was facing major back surgery. I didn't want it and my neurologist, thankfully, suggested I try the Alexander Technique before I schedule the surgery. I had no idea what I was getting into. Within 6 weeks my back pain, which had brought me to my knees at times because it was so excruciating and debilitating, was under control. Within six months I was confident in my movements and could handle discomfort easily. Within a year I was playing golf again and playing with my children again. Janis literally saved my life.
