The Alexander Technique

The Alexander Technique is an educational approach to personal wellness through self-conscious movement and poise.

Ted Gibboney is a career church musician, holding prominent positions in three states while also pursuing a performing and teaching career in Europe and throughout the US. When the pain and stiffness of spinal arthritis threatened his organ playing, the study of Alexander Technique brought about dramatic relief. He resumed his performing career and was inspired to pursue the extensive three-year teacher certification for the AT. In 2015 he was certified as an AT instructor, and opened a private practice for private and group teaching. Although his activity as a practicing musician makes his work especially relevant for musicians, the freedom and ease of movement that are hallmarks of the AT address a wide range of repetitive stress and developmental issues that many face in this mechanized, computerized age.

In order to expand his knowledge of anatomy and refine his palpation skills, in 2017 he began study of Cranial Sacral Therapy through the Upledger Institute. He takes exams for certification in this life-giving discipline in 2020.
