Hello my friends,
Anne O. Glausser and Anne-Marie Corley, of the MIT Graduate Program in Science Writing, created a radio broadcast about the Alexander Technique.
They interviewed Dr. Donald B. Levy, of Harvard’s Osher Clinic. They also met with and took a lesson from Kitty Breen and recorded some of the lesson for this broadcast. Ms. Breen is an AmSAT Certified Alexander Teacher in Cambridge, MA.
Dr. Levy is the Medical Director of the Osher Clinical Center For Complementary and Integrative Medical Therapies. He speaks about back pain and Alexander Technique, and refers to results from a study that was published in the British Medical Journal. Dr. Levy speaks clearly about what the Technique is, and what it is not. I was impressed!
I’ve heard it and think it’s very good. If you have anyone in your life who might find the Technique useful, this is a nice way for them to find out about it, and the piece is brief; only 4 minutes, 25 seconds.
The piece originally aired on WMBR’s Soundtrack Science show on Monday, April 6 from 4-5pm EDT (1-2 pm, PDT). It is posted here, with permission.
