From health fairs to lectures, our goal is to ensure you have the information you need to make good choices about your health care.

Sometimes that means finding a practitioner who can address YOUR particular situation.

Sometimes that means stepping away from the subtle influence of the drug culture and choices you have found are no longer appropriate.

But always, it means putting you back in control of your health care choices.

Driven by disability, Dr. Schalow began asking questions about where health comes from in 1979, while suffering from the pain of tendonitis in the left hand. Also known as "overuse injury", it prevented completion of his violin performance degree. At this point, the Alexander Technique became a practical procedure to work out the problem of tension. After regaining function, Dr. Schalow completed music studies and became devoted to music performance and teaching the Alexander Technique.

By 1994, through working with children and adults in music teaching settings, it became clear that there could also be structural impediments to optimum function. Then "the light bulb went on" and the whole picture began to emerge of how structure and function work hand in hand to either build or impede coordination.

Dr. Schalow is a graduate of Friends' Central School, Temple University (Bachelor and Master of Music in Violin Performance), Wielopolska Training School for the Alexander Technique, Constructive Teaching Centre for the Alexander Technique, Parkland College (Associate in Science) and Palmer College of Chiropractic.
