Jaw Pain, Facial Pain & Back Pain: Direct & Indirect Approaches with F.M. Alexander System

Did you know the jaw and shoulders are the filters for tension?

A neck “free” from muscular tension means a jaw “free” from tension, and vice-versa. Join us for a session on the F.M. Alexander system, and how it could help address problems with jaw, facial, and back pain at the root. An Alexander Teacher could help you discover how to release excessive tension in these areas and achieve relaxation. As a result of the Alexander work, clients have reported less pain and can open their mouths better.

Learn more about the Alexander Technique.

Register online or call 604-984-0286, ext. 8144 for further information. Space is limited.

About the Speaker

Alena Minova is CanStat certified Alexander Technique specialist. The technique is taught at major performance arts schools across the globe, such as Royal Academy in London and the Juilliard School in New York. It is an effective scientific method to work with excessive tension and pain, widely used among musicians and actors to cope and reverse repetitive strain injuries and performance anxiety. These benefits can be experienced by anyone using Alexander skills in everyday life. There are currently 13 CanStat certified practitioners of Alexander Technique in Vancouver, who undergo three years of full-time training and continue to hone their skills every day during their career. Alena is also a certified Yoga Instructor and is certified to teach Yoga for Scoliosis.
