"I can't say enough good things about my experience learning Alexander Technique from Adrian. I was experiencing quite a lot of back pain during my office job, and while searching online to figure out how i could relieve it, i found Adrian's blog and YouTube channel.
What made him stand out from the rest was that he wasn't just proffering exercises to temporarily alleviate symptoms. He was describing a whole new perspective on the body, where you actually understand the root causes of that pain and can deal with the problem directly. And more than just a physical regimen, Adrian's lessons have honestly changed my perspective on other aspects of my life as well.
The ideas from Alexander Technique about resistance and rigidity vs acceptance and dynamism have noticeably improved my relationships with myself and with others, in addition to mitigating the physical discomfort that initially led me to Alexander Technique. I'm seriously grateful that he started offering online consultations this year (as i moved away from the UK this past October), and booking with him is one of the best investments I've made in recent memory."
"Adrian is a great teacher, I couldn't wait for my lessons with him - his online lessons surprised me with how much they changed my quality of 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!"
"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."
The ATLAS randomised control trial was run by the Department of Health Services at the University of York and funded by Arthritis Research UK. It's aim was to assess clinical effectiveness for chronic neck pain.
The results showed that there was a statistically significant and clinically relevant reduction in pain even after a year of the initial lessons.
Chronic neck pain is a common condition. A UK survey has shown that 18% of households reported neck pain with over half reporting that it lasted more than a year. Chronic neck pain has become second most common physical complaint for consulting a GP, no doubt from the increase in the use of computers and mobile devices.
