The Alexander Technique stands on two central ideas. In a way that improves our overall psychophysical condition or in a way that is harmful to that condition. This is the most important aspect of a human being’s mental and physical health ,

Alexander’s psychophysical approach seeks to be misunderstood. It is not a therapeutic or disciplinary discipline but an educational one. If we learn habits of tension and misuse that interfere with our coordination, we can therefore learn to change these behaviors. The Technique does not treat directly but educates the student to become self-aware, to think in new ways, and to take responsibility for constructive change.

Often a student begins Alexander lessons because of a musculo-skeletal problem but continues his study because, after a number of lessons, he discovers that the benefits he experiences encompass many other areas of his life. Does a patient who goes to a physician for knee pain continue to see the physician even after the pain goes away? Certainly not. On the other hand, many Alexander students continue to study the Technique for years because of its continuing and broadening impact on their lives.
