"Adrian has been working with my 15 y.o daughter, she slouches due to over usage of digital devices and other reasons. She usually doesn't like any extra-curricular activities but on this case she really sees and feels the benefits so she goes happily to see Adrian (this never happens!). I can also see that her posture has improved and feel confident that she is acquiring good habits that will serve her for life."
"Adrian is a wonderful teacher. He has been engaging, enthusiastic, calm, flexible and attentive to every aspect of me. He has helped me think, move and generally function in a much better way. I would especially recommend Adrian if you are looking for an Alexander teacher who doesn't want to follow rigid rules so that you become a robot (or 'Alexandroid'!) but who gives his own, very personal and effective teaching method. I also received cranio-sacral therapy from Adrian, and can happily report that, as well as it being one of the most relaxing experiences of my life, has resulted in some deep-seated tension in my neck letting go. Thank you, Adrian!"
A significant new report “Integrated Healthcare: Putting the Pieces Together” has just been published (December 2018). The report has been researched and written by, among others, Matthew Williams, Secretary of the Parliamentary Group for Integrated Healthcare (PGIH), of which STAT is a member. The authors “hope that the Report reflects the aims and aspirations of the members, and shows to the wider audience the contribution we could make to healthcare delivery.” Here, ‘members’ includes STAT, acupuncturists, complementary therapists of various kinds and many other groups. The common interest is in wanting these forms of healthcare to be better understood, their individual value to be recognised by the NHS and in wanting them to be more accessible to patients. A summary of the report’s findings and recommendations will be prepared by the SRG for the next issue of Statnews.
A team at the University of Hull is in the early stages of developing a bid for funding to look at whether and how learning the AT. can help people with Huntington’s disease. Huntington’s disease is a genetic, progressive neurodegenerative disorder which can lead to motor symptoms, balance problems, changes in mobility and cognitive decline. There are a number of ways that A.T. could potentially help. As part of the bid development, the research team is hoping to contact STAT members to ask whether they have any experience of teaching A.T.
to people with Huntington’s disease.
