Carolyn Butt, Social Worker, Adolescent Mental Health says: “A year ago, I suffered a disc protrusion in my lumbar spine and several bulging discs in my thoracic spine. I had a month off work, and depression had kicked in.
Everything Jann has taught me makes absolute sense. I leave her lessons feeling taller and freer. I have dispensed with the 40 minutes of physiotherapy strengthening exercises which aggravated my pain. My depression has lifted. My pain levels are now minimal to nil. Friends notice a new calmness in me.
I am writing this from the UK. My spine has not protested at being subjected to a 40 hour flight; and I am just a beginner! I would love to be able to offer to others what Jann has shown me and so I plan to train as an Alexander Technique teacher.” Auckland June 2009
Dr Kai Andreas, Practitioner in Occupational Medicine, Auckland, says: “The Alexander Technique was suggested as an alternative approach to manage my chronic lower back pain. I had tried many different treatment strategies without much success.
At first I was a little sceptical about the concept especially as my medical background had always focused on manipulative therapies. It was hard to learn “not doing” rather than “doing”. Very quickly I was taught to identify some bad habits and became much more aware of better posture/poise. I applied the teaching to my daily activities/work and found this to be very useful. I am still in the early stages having completed 10 sessions and whilst my overall pain has not improved much yet, I feel more in control and am able to alleviate the acute pain exacerbation more effectively. I am certain that applying what I have been taught will help me to self manage my lower back problem. The technique is very gentle and I can recommend this to anybody with spinal problems
