F M Alexander

You translate everything, whether physical or mental or spiritual, into muscular tension. - F M Alexander

Mr Alexander created what may be truly called a physiology of the LIVING organism....... - Philosopher John Dewey

Ten years of careful self-observation by F Matthais Alexander led to the discoveries that became the Alexander Technique.  Alexander was able to solve his personal difficulties, his loss of voice while acting and reciting Shakespeare that was his career.  Alexander discovered that he was creating a pattern of tension that was interfering with the relationship between his head, neck and back.

Alexander was able to demonstrate how to change this pattern of tension and establish a more harmonious way for the parts of the body to interact.  Over the last 100 years the Alexander Technique has been taught to many thousands of people all over the world with great success.

Alexander students have found that the extent of tension they carry around without reliable internal feedback is quite surprising.

F M Alexander has given us a way to change this condition and return to a healthy way of living through conscious control practical intelligence.
