Alexander became convinced of the need to teach his discoveries as a basis for general re-education of psycho-physical co-ordination. He began teaching other actors and professionals in Australia who suffered from respiratory and vocal problems and his success encouraged him to further his pursuits in England. Many doctors there became interested in his work. They sent him patients with a variety of neurological conditions and physical ailments which he successfully treated. He also brought his work to actors, writers and athletes who heard about the preventive nature of his Technique and its ability to bring poise and ease of movement. He taught many famous people including: John Dewey, Aldous Huxley, George Bernard Shaw, Nikolass Tinbergen and Roberston Davies.

“I can do no more than characterize, and recommend, the Alexander treatment as an extremely sophisticated form of rehabilitation… many types of underperformance and even ailments, both mental and physical, can be alleviated, sometimes to a surprising extent, by teaching the body musculature to function differently.” – Nikkolas Tinbergen, The Nobel Prize Oration (1973)

“…I am sure, as a matter of personal experience and observation, that [Alexander’s teaching] gives us all the things we have been looking for… We cannot ask more from a system of physical education; nor, if we seriously desire to alter human beings in a desirable direction, can we ask any less.” – Aldous Huxley, Ends and Means

“Mr. Alexander’s method lays hold of the individual as a whole, as a self-vitalizing agent. He reconditions and re-educates the reflex mechanisms and brings their habits into normal relation with the functioning of the organism as a whole. I regard this method as thoroughly scientific and educationally sound.” – Professor George E. Coghill, Nobel Prize winning anatomist and physiologist

“The Alexander Technique has played an important part in my life. It keeps the body alive at ages when people have resigned themselves to irreversible decline. Those committed to it find they cannot do without it.” – Robertson Davies, Author
