Testimonials

Rochelle’s work as an Alexander Technique teacher at our facility has been a welcome asset to patient care. Numerous patients realized tremendous postural improvement and were able to make a shift away from re-injuring themselves with newly learned body mechanics. Rochelle has tremendous insight and understanding in both the patient and the practitioner perspective.

A testimonial on what the Alexander Technique coaching for several months with Rochelle has done for me. At 85 my posture is improving every day and saving my back. I can still play the violin and my control and sound are improving every day. What a wonderful gift at age 85. To be improving rather than deteriorating.

– Jane Schumeman, Violinist

I came to Rochelle for lessons in the Alexander Technique and she helped to change my posture in a way that no other PT or trainer had been able to do. She re-taught me how to sit, stand, walk, and swing a golf club and other every day activities. The information was invaluable and has helped me keep mobile, functional and out of pain for two years.  My golf swing has improved to the point where it is noticeable to my playing partners. I continue to be able to have the active life I enjoy.

The Technique’s many benefits for actors include minimized tension, centeredness, vocal relaxation and responsiveness, mind/body connection and about an inch and a half of additional height!

In the spring semester of the University of Arizona OLLI program, Rochelle Reea gave two 2-hour lectures to groups of about forty students. She held the attention of everyone in the room as she got us on our feet, worked on volunteers and presented her own demonstrations. The excitement was palpable and the experience extremely stimulating for a group of retired people who are not giving up on pain-free and vivacious lives.

I’ve studied the Alexander Technique for nearly 20 years, with many different teachers. Rochelle brings an unusually high level of skill, communication and intent to her gentle and powerful traditional Alexander Technique sessions. It’s marvelous to see her clear directions stay with me, and continue to unfold new connections. I look forward to many more sessions with this gifted teacher.

After presenting at the recent National Ergonomics Convention in Las Vegas I realized the need for my Mind/Body, Whole/Body Approach to Ergonomics and Back Schools. I presented to a group of PTs, OTs, Risk & Safety Management, HR, Back Trainers, and CEOs. Most everyone in the workshop was in pain!

I saw the importance of my creating a program for companies called “Training the Trainers.” By training the trainers in companies of all sizes, the trainers can then pass on to employees the benefits of this approach through ergonomic assessments and back schools – the correct ways of bending, lifting, pushing, and pulling, and the psychology of movement in interfacing with the workstation.

Rochelle’s course was one of the most successful approaches to teaching students to move their bodies and perform massage techniques with correct posture, thus preventing injury to their body.

Rochelle is a most perceptive teacher and her knowledge of the Alexander Technique is extensive…the feedback from the faculty and students was extremely positive…I recommend the Alexander Technique to every musician—indeed to every person.
