The Alexander Technique is a tool that can be applied to many areas of life.

Here are several statements from long-term students who came in with challenges and feel that they have been able to use the Alexander Technique as a tool in meeting those challenges.

I thank them for generously sharing their experience of studying the Technique in order to encourage prospective students to try it out for themselves.


I would say that my work with you gave me a renewed sense of confidence in regaining my sense of balance and doing physical things which I hadn't been able to do in a long time. As you know when I first saw you I was about eight months out of surgery (bilateral knee replacements) and had only partially completed my physical therapy regimen because I had to work. At that time I was having difficulty getting up out of a chair and I felt that there was little that I could do about it. Fortunately, you convinced me that you could help me and that I would be able to get out of chairs with ease and do other things.

I learned first that I (my body structure) was out of order and by being aware of that fact and making little adjustments; changes would take place. Your process was open to what I was going through at that time. At each session you listened to me and ask me what I needed to live a quality life and we worked toward achieving those goals. When I decided to leave the process we agreed that I might return at some point. I would say that while I am doing balance and strength sessions at my gym; none of this would have been possible without our time together.

The stress of daily life, as well as being a musician, meant that I had learned to play in pain. Over time, I had been treated for repetitive motion injuries as well as TMJ. I was looking for something that would treat the cause, not just the symptoms. Searching the internet, I stumbled across Alexander technique and Stephanie Segers. I have studied with Stephanie for 2 years.

The technique has taught me ways to utilize my body in such a way that I could play more freely. As well, by examining motion with the instrument, I am able to look at the way I use my body in every day life, allowing for more overall energy and stamina.

Stephanie has provided encouraging, gentle guidance in the process. Her intuitive sense as well as her intellect, have allowed me to explore many areas of movement. Most importantly, she has treated me as a partner in this journey by encouraging and engaging in my own discoveries. This being the most important part of my learning.

Two years later, I am a much different performer. I have an open sound, much more connection to the music and audience and am painfree! I have recommended Stephanie to several students and colleagues.

I began to take lessons in the Alexander Technique after I was diagnosed with a Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). The lessons have not only reduced the RSI pain in my wrist, but have also improved my posture and the way I walk.

Stephanie is an excellent teacher and has a very down-to-earth approach to the Technique. Every lesson with her increases my awareness of how I use myself. As a result, I can accomplish my daily activities with less effort than ever before.
