From spinal health checks to lectures on the Alexander Technique, our goal is to ensure you have the information you need to make good choices about your health care.

Driven by disability in 1979, Dr. Schalow began asking questions about where health comes from, while suffering from the pain of tendonitis in the left hand. Also known as "overuse injury", it prevented completion of the violin performance degree. At this point, the Alexander Technique became a practical structure to work out the problem of tension. After regaining function, Dr. Schalow completed music studies and became devoted to music performance and teaching the Alexander Technique.
By 1994, through working with children in music teaching settings, it became clear that there could also be structural impediments to optimum function. Then "the light bulb went on" and the whole picture began to emerge of how structure and function work hand in hand to either build or impede coordination.
