Rossella Buono moved to Melbourne from Italy in 2007 to undertake her training at the School for F.M. Alexander Studies. Working with a great range of people, Rossella has applied the Technique to improving the lives of people with issues such as back, neck or shoulder pain, fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s disease, sciatica, asthma, stuttering, anxiety and stress. She has also enjoyed attaining tangible posture and movement improvements for musicians, sportspeople, office workers, and the elderly. In her capacity as a care worker, she has developed strategies to improve the quality of life for people with physical and mental disabilities.
Rossella was first introduced to the Technique as a means of her own rehabilitation, after breaking her leg in an accident – and found herself benefiting greatly from the approach. After eliminating residual pain and regaining sustainable, coordinated mechanical function, Rossella decided to train as an Alexander Technique teacher in Melbourne, Australia. Since then she has worked to offer others the same opportunity for the elimination of pain and improvement of overall quality of life.
Rossella Buono now lives mostly in the UK, going back often to practice the Alexander Technique both in Australia and in Italy.
