In order for people to make a success of a business they are required to work at peak capacity. Without the health and wellbeing of individuals this is an impossible task. For 100 years, the Alexander Technique has taught people to be responsible for their psychological and physical wellbeing to work and engage with the world more efficiently and enjoyably.
