Workshop addresses stiffness, pain

Nora Nausbaum will offer a workshop on the Alexander Technique, a 100-year-old method that gets to the root of stiffness and pain from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

In the Alexander Technique, there are no exercises, or massage.

Help comes through observing and altering habits that contract the spine and joints.

Nausbaum uses gentle hands-on guidance and verbal direction to help people change.

Kinesthetic awareness is raised using everyday movements such as bending, sitting, standing, reaching, using the computer, playing an instrument, cutting vegetables etc.

The Alexander Technique has been successfully used to create healthy backs, necks without tension, hands, hips and breathing that are easier and freer.

Extensively studied in music departments and drama schools throughout U.S. and Europe, the Alexander Technique is useful for anyone with stiffness and pain caused by unobserved contraction, according to Nausbaum.

The workshop will be at Mt. View Rehabilitation, 380 Sierra College Dr. in Grass Valley.

It costs $35 and includes and individual session. To register, call Mt. View Rehabilitation at 477-0893.
