I try to incorporate energy work at every level. Of central importance to me is that the client experience a balancing relief of pain that leads to healing. Every day I am inspired with this profound work.

For 20 years I have been deeply committed to the art of archery. I shoot a ‘hand-made’ native American bow made in the Osage nation style, and I read, paint, play a variety of video games.

 Bill Olsen encountered the Alexander Technique while I was a student at Williams College.  I was immediately struck by the both subtle and far reaching effects the Technique had on me.  Since that time, I have employed it in all my creative endeavors (as an actor, director, videographer and juggler) and my every day life. As an expert in movement therapy, he can help retrain the body to achieve the grace, ease and poise that has been missing - and may lead to repetitive stress and painful movement.

He has now been involved with the Technique for over twenty-five years, and has worked with hundreds of people to bring them fuller awareness of how they use themselves and how they can better take care of themselves.  He has been a certified teacher and member of AmSAT since 2001.  

He has published several articles and shares many interesting facets of his work…which you can read here.
