“Out of all of the time and money that I have spent over the past 20 years dealing with my increasing back issues, this has been the best spent and I wish I had found her years ago.” – Dana Smith

I stumbled on Alexander Technique while researching back surgery and alternatives. I came across a study that was done about its effectiveness with back pain.  Feeling that some, although not all, of my issues were related to my muscles and movement, I decided to give it a try.

When I first went to Itsuko, she asked me to show her how I would normally sit, stand etc. and I explained that my situation had become so bad that there was no way that was comfortable for me or felt natural to stand or sit. In addition my shoulders had hunched and my head was forward.
Working with her she taught me and if fission and comfortable way of using my body.
My posture is significantly different than when I started lessons. When I see my reflection I no longer cringe at my posture, it is now what it should be and it is that way naturally without trying to force myself into an uncomfortable position.
I have learned more efficient movement that causes less strain. I am now able to complete more tasks that I could not previously complete without suffering significant pain.
I would definitely recommend Itsuko. Out of all of the time and money that I have spent over the past 20 years dealing with my increasing back issues, this has been the best spent and I wish I had found her years ago.
