I discovered the Alexander Technique to deal with my slipped disc and sciatica. Pulling my hamstring in a training session at my university rowing club, I spent six months battling with the injury and the follow on effects to keep racing. Now unable to walk, I was taken to expert after expert, with no result. Unknown to me and all but one expert, I had been rowing with a slipped disc undiagnosed. After 10 months on my back I was sceptical, but with 3 months of Alexander Technique I was walking again.
Finishing university I was introduced to Walter Carrington, whose hands were simply amazing. I enrolled on his three year, full time and STAT approved teacher training course; completing over 2200 hours of training. This training course is world renowned and requires dedication in order to achieve the quality required. I qualified in December 2007 and have worked with hundreds of people to help them achieve their goals. I have taught at drama schools such as Italia Conti and LAMDA. Although I do work with all kinds of people I mostly work with those in pain.
I slipped my disc seven times after I had my initial lessons. Each time I put them back in by myself simply using Alexander Technique. The last slip was in 2005 and it has not happened since. From my personal experience, Alexander Technique has powerful and long lasting effects that preventing back, spine and other musculoskeletal related problems. It is a valuable tool for any individual to apply to themselves and I can show you how.
Most people with back pain, neck pain or one of the many musculoskeletal related pain conditions out there can be helped by my Alexander Technique Lessons. For those who I cannot help, I will refer you on if I know someone who can help your specific condition.
Having been through the very painful and confusing experience of having my "back fixed" and expert opinions I can give you a gentle, easy and quick way out of pain. There is no "cracking" your body back into place. I give you control over your body rather than trying to fix you or force you into a fixed position.
I am a very different Alexander Technique Teacher - I make the lessons enjoyable, fun and easy. My approach is always to fit the teaching around the student, like a bespoke suit rather than trying to put you into the nearest fit. It's the only method I teach and you will find it different from anything else you've tried.
Comfortable clothes are best. Nothing that restricts your movement like tight or skinny jeans. Ladies will be more comfortable in trousers because of the table work.
Honestly? I have no idea. I've got people who have come for just a few lessons and others have come for years. When you turn up the first time I will give you an idea of what to expect on an individual basis. People do come for more lessons because they find out that after they get pain free there are other benefits to their health and personal development. It all depends on what you want.
Good question! There is no catch, but here's why it's free...
I also have more advanced packages which I talk about at the free taster, and you may choose to start one, or you may not. No obligation, and no problem at all either way.
There's no hard sell here, and even if you just come along for the free taster, soak up all the information you can, and then leave and apply it to your life, that's great too!
