Hi, I'm Jessica Santascoy. 

I used to be in chronic pain. I had terrible stage fright.

Take heart. I have the skills to help you. 

There are three skills you will learn that you can practice in every activity. 

Awareness

I'll teach you how to become aware of your patterns of tension.

Inhibition

You'll learn to change patterns of movement and thought that are blocking your breath and stressing you out. 

Direction

You'll practice choosing non-habitual, freer movement. You learn to direct yourself into the better habit. 

If you're an actor, the Alexander Technique is for you. If you're a performer or presenter, the Alexander Technique is for you. If you're in pain, the Alexander Technique is for you. 

Everyone benefits from the Alexander Technique.

After one lesson with Jessica, I immediately saw the difference in my acting and most importantly, in my LIFE.

I have taken Alexander Technique with some of the top teachers in NY and LA.

Honestly, nobody comes close to how effective Jessica is.

I worked with Christiane Seidel to master one of her most demanding roles -- playing 10 different characters (9 males) in THEN SILENCE.  We communicated long distance while she was on set in Santa Fe so I could coach her to ride a horse effortlessly and hold a gun elegantly in GODLESS.

I love working with Jessica so much! Her spirit and talent - invaluable!

One of the greatest benefits of lessons with Jessica is learning to deal effectively with anxiety.

AND I have not been in pain since studying with Jessica. PLUS I feel more grounded, present and ready when performing.

Jessica teaches with kindness and lack of judgement. She has a wide open heart and mind and is 100% present in our classes. I highly recommend Jessica to anyone who wants to become more comfortable in their own skin and effortlessly efficient with their body.

“I had intense headaches at night for weeks. In one session Jessica fixed what 3 doctors and an emergency room visit did not.

After taking 10 classes with Jessica, my physical life has been transformed.

Jessica is awesome!
