The Alexander Technique

The Alexander Technique was developed in the 1890's by Francis Matthias Alexander. It is both an educational process and hands-on treatment that is recognized worldwide for its overall health benefits. A process that helps you achieve a greater awareness of your body, resulting in a more efficient use of your body. The technique helps remove your tensions, prevents collapse and misuse of your body, and gives you the the ability to make conscious choices about how to respond to a stimulus.

Everyone is different. The actual practice of the technique involves subtle new sensory experiences and awareness that can only be communicated by the teacher to the student through the sense of touch and aided by the sense of sight. That is why it is impossible to describe what a lesson is like. Everyone is different and words mean different things to different people, based on their own personal experiences.


 Benefits

Anyone looking for a whole body healing approach, and would like to have more energy and balance in life.

Specific repetitive problems the technique can help with include, and are not limited to:

Neck or back pain, muscular tension, fatigue, headaches, migraines, restless sleep, teeth grinding, breathing difficulties, thoracic outlet syndrome, strains, sprains, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, achilles tendonitis, other overuse injuries, etc.

The technique raises the subconscious to consciousness, which helps free you from being stuck in repetitive patterns.

Appointments

Each lesson is approximately 60 minutes. Please wear comfortable clothing. Lessons are always done on a one-to-one basis. 


About Veronica Biggar, Certified Teacher

My previous work experience began in 1988 with The Medical Council of Canada. While working there, I was introduced to the field of healthcare. After University, I went back to school in 2001 and trained to be a Registered Massage Therapist. I have worked at many locations throughout the years at places such as; Sunnybrook Hospital, Variety Village, Southlake Regional Health Centre, and with other trained professionals. After many years of practicing as a RMT, specializing in postural assessment and myofascial treatments, I realized that massage does not always get to the root of the problem. In 2017, I trained for three years at the Toronto School of the Alexander Technique and I am a Certified Teacher. I am also a member of CANSTAT - The Canadian Society of Teachers of The Alexander Technique alexandertechniquecanada.ca

I have over 20 years experience helping people heal by using a holistic approach to healing. As a certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, Reiki teacher and practitioner, and former Registered Massage Therapist,  my goal is to give others the tools to improve their overall well being, and help them heal along the way.

I now work at my home office in Aurora. If you would like to find out more information, or to book an appointment, please feel free to call, text or email me alexandertechniqueaurora.ca
