workshop: fri 14 aug | details
Anikó is a dentist and a final year trainee at the Melbourne Alexander School. Anikó suffered from chronic neck and back pain for over thirty years. She tried everything to help herself and found no long-term relief. Medical professionals considered her a ‘hopeless case.’ Seven years ago she was contemplating forced early retirement. Fortunately she discovered the Alexander Technique, learned to release harmful posture and movement habits in all activities especially during clinical dentistry, and got her life back.
Anikó is passionate about the transformative impact of the Alexander Technique. She founded ‘Optimum Dental Posture’ to present and teach the Alexander principles with the intention of addressing occupational musculoskeletal disorders in the dental profession.
She has already presented on the Alexander Technique at the ’14 Melbourne Dental Convention and the ’15 Australian Dental Congress. She is currently conducting research into the incidence and impact of musculoskeletal disorders in dentistry.
