"I am a consultant transplant surgeon and spend long hours at the operating table - the Alexander technique as taught by Adrian has helped me think about my posture and stance when I operate and has relieved back pain experienced after long operations. Adrian is excellent - I look forward to the sessions and have seen a noticeable improvement since starting the Alexander Technique with Adrian. I would recommend."

 Dr. Jeremy Crane, Transplant Surgeon


"A painful neck injury led to me contacting Adrian. Medication was not getting me comfortable and I was waiting for surgery. Adrian has a skillful and subtle intelligence with the body that he shares with his clients, beginning a secure road to recovery. Pain relief occurs as a natural consequence. I would thoroughly recommend him."

News and Research

Combining group and individual Alexander lessons for people with chronic back pain. 

 

A pilot study by a research team that included Paul Little (Principal Investigator of the ATEAM trial) and Alexander teacher, Carolyn Nicholls, has explored the use of combined group and one-to-one Alexander teaching for people with chronic or recurrent back pain. This combined approach has promise because it could make learning the Alexander Technique more accessible for people and more affordable for the NHS.

 

The paper is published in BMJ OPEN and you can access it free via this link.
