Preventive Care


"The Alexander Technique stresses unification in an era of greater and greater medical specialization. It is an educational system that teaches people how to best use their bodies in ordinary action to avoid or reduce unnecessary stress and pain. It enables clients to get better faster and stay better longer. This is undoubtedly the best way to take care of the back and alleviate back pain."

"The Alexander Technique is very worthwhile as a primary preventative therapy. It is especially useful when posture is a key factor in back injuries that occur while lifting and for workers who perform repetitive tasks while sitting."

 "In addition to its physiological and musculoskeletal benefits, the Alexander Technique is extremely helpful in relieving the psychological states of depression and anxiety that so often accompany chronic pain and disease. It is my belief, based on professional experience, that the Alexander Technique should be part of all preventative health and education programs. It is as basic as good nutrition."

“After several months of Alexander Technique lessons with Babette, I have made profound changes in my alignment, breathing and wellbeing.  We have eliminated the pain in my knees and back.   As an older dancer with a compromised spine, this has enabled me to continue to do what I love to do – dance and perform. I recommend Babette to anyone who is dealing with pain, or just wants to have more joy and ease in life.”
