MEDICAL AND SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH OF THE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE
Although F.M Alexander began his technique in the 1800s, it has taken science quite awhile to catch up with his simple yet magnificent understanding of how postural use greatly affects the human body. Presently, there is much research on applying the Alexander Technique to those suffering with Parkinson’s Disease, back pain, symptoms of old age, etc.
