Back pain is one of the most common reasons for employee absenteeism. Half of all working Americans report experiencing back pain symptoms each year. Poor posture and “ihunching” are often the culprits behind spine issues.  Sitting is as bad for us as smoking. Employees who spend hours each day seated at desks benefit immensely from the Alexander Technique. Sara’s expertise has helped employees achieve pain relief in the workplace in a wide range of professions including optometry, dental, insurance, salons, and the financial industry.

Locked knees put great strain on the lower back. Hinging at the hips and knees and ankles encourages more  ease and better positioning for maximum back comfort.

It is not what we do but how we do it that matters.
