"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."
"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!"
"Exploring the Alexander Technique with Adrian Farrell both eased my back pain and made me mobile again. His classes have provided me with key insights into the effect of movement and mindset on potential physical problems, and have given me a set of grounded, simple mechanisms with which to avoid these problems in the future. I much indebted to Adrian and the the Alexander Technique."
Study shows that the Alexander Technique improves proficiency, endurance and posture during surgery.
One of the main ergonomic challenges during surgical procedures is surgeon posture. There have been reports of a high number of work related injuries in laparoscopic surgeons. Significant levels of musculoskeletal symptoms were found in resident surgeons, with the most common self-reported symptoms reported in the neck (59%), lower back (55%), upper back (35%), and shoulders (34%).
The Alexander Technique training program resulted in a significant improvement in posture, improved surgical ergonomics, endurance and decreased surgical fatigue and the incidence of repetitive stress injuries to laparoscopic surgeons.
