Results. Most importantly, Dominique helps you achieve the results that you are seeking from the Alexander Technique. Here's what some of her clients say about working with her:
"I was introduced to Dominique and the Alexander Technique at a riding (dressage) clinic. Little did I know that it would also change my life!
At the age of six, I was in serious auto accident and by age twelve, I had developed a hunched posture and a painfully stiff lower back. I tried everything from weight training to massage therapy, and finally resigned myself to being an old man in posture and gait.
Within only a few weeks of Alexander lessons, I was straighter, less hunched and almost free of back stiffness and pain. I was walking energetically with an air of confidence and purpose. Within six weeks of Alexander lessons, I was completely free of back pain!"
- Buddy Schencker, MD
"I love working with Dominique! Her training has improved my life in very measurable ways. Alexander lessons are the best investment in myself and my health I have ever made.
For the first time in my life since I was a kid, I am not grinding my teeth at night. I have also seen benefit in chronic shoulder, knee and wrist problems, and I am able to do sports, acting and music in a more relaxed, powerful and effective way.
I have been recommending Dominique to all my friends--she is an experienced and top practitioner in her field, fun and energizing to be around, and an inspiring teacher. I feel lighter and stronger after every session."
- Anna Newman, business professional
"When I first started seeing Dominique in 2004 I had no idea that something as seemingly simple as the Alexander Technique would change my life. Quite unexpectedly, I began to discover an inner source of resilience, strength, and confidence that had been dormant in me for a very long time. I began to participate in my own life in a completely new and more exciting way. Dominique gently, delightfully, and skillfully worked with me as I blossomed in her expert hands.
Just by using the techniques she has given me, I can change my aches and pains and my entire state into one of wonderful well-being and ease. If you're looking to do Alexander technique, Dominique Jacques is the very best practitioner you could ever hope to find".
