Reviews

"Adrian is brilliant!!! As a physician myself I share with him a great understanding of anatomy, as well as a deep love for physics and music ;)

Adrian not only understands the many key concepts of posture (or poise as he prefers), he is an outstanding teacher. He is exceptionally inductive at identifying one’s dysfunctions and is able to relate corrective behavior in a simplified manner. His technique should be standard teaching in grade school, and would be a great benefit to society in that manner. Unfortunately it’s not so we’re left to learn it as an adult, which is more difficult because we have to unlearn all our bad habits. Fortunately Adrian is a master teacher and everyone would benefit from his lessons."

"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."

"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."

Dr. Shehla Baig, GP

 

"I started having lessons with Adrian after watching a video about Alexander Technique for guitarists. I had suffered from lower back pain for 18 months. An X-ray and an MRI scan confirmed that there was no serious damage. However, the pain still persisted, especially upon waking in the morning. I tried everything, including buying a new mattress. It became clear that the pain was due to spending many hours each day sitting down, playing and teaching the guitar. I found Adrian's methods to be extremely helpful. The pain has since been greatly reduced, I have more flexibility in my back and I now follow a daily Alexander routine. I feel I am very much on the road to recovery and have been given the physical and mental tools to maintain good poise."

News and Research

How does the Alexander Technique work? Towards a scientific model.

 

The Alexander Technique is an educational method for changing long-standing habits of tension. Research suggests it results in improved movement, balance and overall wellbeing, and that it has significant benefits for people with back pain, neck pain and those living with Parkinson’s disease. But how does it work? For the first time, a modern neurophysiological explanation is proposed, drawing on direct studies of the Alexander Technique and other relevant scientific literature.
