HIGH TOUCH

A career enrichment certification program in the Alexander Technique for all those who directly use their hands in their work to help others: somatic practitioners, movement educators, physical, occupational, and speech therapists, massage therapists, nurses, and hospice workers.

Thankfully, there are many skilled care givers in the world. Many of us support, move, nurture, educate, and rehabilitate others directly through touch.

Alexander evolved a particular way of using his hands that helped communicate to people how to find support from the ground and from their own structural design. Through his hands he was able to access people’s innate coordination, enabling them to move comfortably and freely. And he found a way to bring all of this about without any force. To most it felt totally magical. But it wasn’t. It was skill. It was technique. It was “high touch”.

In this course Robyn Avalon and I will share with you our 90 years of collective experience using our hands to help people become freer, more powerful, and more beautiful.

You will graduate this course knowing how to take better care of yourself while you work. We can’t give support, nurturance, comfort, power, and ease to a person through our hands unless we are, in ourselves, supported, well nurtured, comfortable, powerful, and at ease. We will help you learn how to do this for yourself.

You will graduate this course with more confidence, with more skill, with deeper understanding, and with hands that are refined, receptive, more curious, more communicative, and more effective.
