A gym-crazy young attorney, living in London, life was sweet. Then my back 'went out'. For a year I hobbled to physicians, chiropractors and others. Despite repeated manipulation, exercises and back injections, the pain from my spinal scoliosis made life almost unbearable.
Introduced to the Alexander Technique, in desperation I started sessions 3 times a week. Amazingly, after 4 weeks life was painless, upright and mobile again. For the next decade I enjoyed periodic sessions until I began a 1600 hour, 3 year Alexander Technique instructor's training course.
