Here’s what world famous cricketer Greg Chappell says:

The Alexander Technique will benefit anyone whether they are an elite athlete or whether they just wish to live life without the aches and pains that many people suffer and accept as part of life. It is a pity that these techniques are not shown to us all at an early age for I have no doubt that this would alleviate many of the causes of ill health in our communities.

Choose between individual instruction or group classes. We have a range of programs to suit your circumstance. If you have no experience, start with an Introductory Presentation.  That way you can decide how helpful Alexander Technique will be for you.

I commenced Alexander Technique with Michael after almost two months of severe neck pain and a lack of neck movement that made driving hazardous.  During this time I had several sessions of Physio, dry needling, acupuncture and massage.  All with some temporary success.  I decided to try Alexander as something that would be more long lasting.
In my initial sessions, Michael clearly outlined what Alexander was all about and what I should expect and provided some reading material.  I also gained some immediate pain relief and added flexibility.
Over the following weeks I was led to discover more about controlling my movements including standing, walking, sitting and rising.  Very comprehensive but in a manageable staged sequence. I became very aware of my body and movements and my ability to make conscious decisions on how to move it.
Michael is clearly very knowledgeable but does not overwhelm with jargon. He communicates clearly and provides ample feedback.  No question or observation from me was too trivial.
I have been pain free for quite some time now.  When there have been minor setbacks these have been very adequately explained. Still have a little neck “tightness” but nothing to worry about just something to continue to work on.
The new studio is very conducive to calm and quality treatment.  A wonderful setting.
