What People Are Saying…

Here’s what people are saying:
“With verbal imagery or guiding touch, students learn how to eliminate habits of bodily misuse – such as excessive neck tension or rounded shoulders – in simple activities such as sitting, standing, and walking….Tom had me recline upon a table, then guided me through subtle movements with verbal instructions and light touch. The table work was particularly powerful for pain relief and my posture felt naturally, centered after the session.”
– Deborah Quilter, Author
The Repetitive Strain Injury Recovery Book

“With the best intentions, the job of acting can become a display of accumulated bad habits, trapped instincts and blocked energies. Working with Tom and the Alexander Technique to untangle the wires has given me sightings of another way. Mind and body, work and life together. Real imaginative freedom.”
-Alan Rickman, Actor

“Working with Tom is a great experience. He helps you gain an awareness of your bad physical habits and then change them. The work is challenging and extremely interesting. I would recommend it to anyone, whether world class athlete, Broadway actor, or couch potato.”
– John Opdycke, Independent Political Fundraiser
