Alexander’s Technique was founded by F.M Alexander (1869 – 1955). He was a British-Australian actor who suffered from hoarseness, anger outburst and general weakness. Alexander tried seeking medical help but when no doctor could really help him he started observing himself, observing his movement and how it affected his vocals. Alexander noticed that the use of the self (which is also the title of his third book), affected the way he functioned and that it had an influence on his health.
