About the Author

Dr. Theodore (Ted) Dimon, founder and director of the Dimon Institute in New York City, is an educator, author, and leading expert in the Alexander Technique. Dimon earned his Master's and Doctorate degrees from Harvard University in 1987, making a detailed study of human evolution, comparative anatomy, and educational theory. Through this research, in combination with his practical hands-on experience, he discovered new principles of how the human being is designed to work and function. Since then, Dimon has helped thousands of people overcome chronic musculoskeletal problems and achieve higher levels of consciousness. Dimon's other books include The Undivided Self; The Elements of Skill; The Body in Motion; Neurodynamics- The Art of Mindfulness in Action; and Anatomy of the Voice. G.

"I enthusiastically recommend this book. It very clearly and simply achieves its stated goal of 'contribut[ing] to a practical and theoretical understanding of this vital subject and to an advance[ing] in our knowledge of the remarkable and subtle workings of [the musculoskeletal system of] the human body.' It is exceptionally readable for anyone who has an interest in understanding the basic parts of our body that contribute so greatly to our daily living and well-being."
-Richard A. Magill, PhD, coauthor of Motor Learning and Control and adjunct professor at the Movement Sciences Program, Teachers College, Columbia University

"What would it be like for you 'to be connected' with your body-to be aligned mentally and physically to prevent injury, tension, and stress? Dr. Ted Dimon gives us the tools to have a heightened awareness of this mind/body relationship. The fundamental aspects of anatomy are creatively illustrated. The wonderful dynamics of the human body in motion are displayed to perfection. This book will guide you to achieve proper alignment of the muscle/bone/joint unit. What a gift for wellness and therapeutic healing!"
-Dr. Marie Lupica, assistant attending pediatrician at New York-Presbyterian Hospital and assistant professor of clinical pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medical College

"In this groundbreaking book, Ted Dimon unravels the mystery of the moving body, making sense of its various functions and capacities. For Dimon, the body is not simply something to be treated, but is the vital foundation for living healthfully, for paying attention to oneself, and for paying respect to our living design. I recommend this book highly, whether for healers of others or healers of self, who seek to reintegrate bodily awareness with physical form. Dimon opens the door leading to wholeness."
-Lisa Miller, PhD, professor and founder of Spirituality Mind Body Institute, Columbia University, and author of the New York Times best seller The Spiritual Child
