"The Alexander technique is a very gentle form of body work that uses awareness of breathing and posture to help shed dysfunctional movement and unnecessary muscular tension. ​ Rita stands alongside and takes you, very slowly, through a few daily movements -- something as simple as sitting in a chair or getting up and down from it.


I was amazed doing this work, to learn how much goes into such simple daily movements and how, with her coaching me through subtle alterations of weight, I could change the way I stand, transition and ambulate.


She combines passive and active elements (mostly verbal coaching but also gentle touch) and works on very simple movements. ​The result, for me is significant pain management and a gradual recovery of more symmetrical use of lower extremity function."
