“I will forever be grateful for the powerful teachings of Michael and Léonie at Freedom in Action. You have helped me to give myself my life back! Learning the Alexander Technique has been a truly transformational experience and has put the power of healing back within ME!

Gone is my fear that I will someday be an old lady who can barely move and cannot pick up my grandchildren. Gone is the frustration of powerlessness to eliminate or  minimize the back, hip, and buttock pains.”
