Mind/Body Integration

"The uniqueness of the Alexander approach is that it emphasises using the mind and body in unity. The Alexander technique stresses unification in an era of greater and greater sub-specialisation. It enables patients with back trouble together better faster and stay better longer."

Jack Stern, M.D. Ph.D.
Neurosurgical Director, New York Medical College.

"Alexander learned by observation and experiment upon himself, in the strictest scientific method, that the mechanism that determines the character of all reflex action lies in the reflexes governing the relationship of the head to the neck, and the neck to the spinal column. When this 'primary control' or our core structure is functioning as it should, it is sensed as an integrating force that allows freedom throughout the organism."

Prof. John Dewey
