About Barbara Allen
Barbara’s interest in the Alexander Technique was motivated by a series of serious recurring injuries including herniated disks in her back and neck and a debilitating wrist tendinitis that interfered with her work and her life. She tried many therapies including visits to a wrist surgeon and a hand specialist that encouraged her to change her career.
No matter what therapy or exercise program she tried she would re-injure herself.
Eventually she began working with an Alexander teacher & noticed she could work more without being injured – and could once again hike and do exercises without getting injured.
She began to think of her teacher as a master personal trainer even though he was not an athlete.
Barbara received her certification to teach upon completion of a 3 year intensive training program in Kinesiology and Mindful Movement at the ALEXANDER EDUCATIONAL CENTER.
She brings to her current practice a background in Anatomy, Physiology & 27 years of experience in a variety of bodywork techniques including orthopedic massage (working with joint pain and soft tissue injuries).
In a series of ‘Mindful’ workshops with Dr Patricia Frisch & Dr Blasband she has gained a working knowledge of the simultaneous connection between our thoughts, emotions and our muscle tension…. and how this impacts our biological energy.
This experience informs her unique approach to teaching the technique.
