Linda Coyle, speech and music therapist says

It was a real eye-opener and I have no hesitation in writing this testimonial about Jann.  I had about eleven lessons with her. I used to suffer from upper back or shoulder pain for a few days each month, and sometimes this necessitated time off work. Now I rarely get this sort of pain,.  And if it does occur it doesn’t last long, because I focus intensively on the technique.  Happily my use has improved and so has my posture. 

These days I don’t really hold tension in my shoulders like I used to. Recently when I had a massage, the woman was quite surprised that there was no tension in my shoulders.  She found it unusual.  Yes, it was definitely worth it, it made a lot of sense.  Now I am telling my friends, for back pain, arthritis, pain related difficulties, musicians, habit patterns, emotional tension.

Leslie Hamilton says

After my lesson with Jann, I was taller and freer.  I had to adjust my rear view mirror!

Social Worker Carolyn Butt says

“On my trip home, (I am writing this from the UK), my spine did not protest at being subjected to a forty hour flight.  And I am just a beginner! I would love to be able to offer to others what Jann has taught me. So, as a result, I have trained to become an Alexander Technique teacher.  When I came to Jann,

  • “Initially I suffered a disc protrusion in my lumbar spine and several bulging discs in my thoracic spine.
  • Subsequently I had a month off work,
  • Gradually depression had kicked in.

Since knowledge is key, everything Jann taught me makes absolute sense.  I left her lessons with a lot of knowledge and feeling taller and freer.  So, I dispensed with the 40 minutes of physiotherapy strengthening exercises which aggravated my pain.  And my depression lifted.  Also, my pain levels are now minimal to nil.  Finally my friends notice a new calmness in me”.

Jennifer Ward-Lealand and Michael Hurst, New Zealand celebrities say

“We support the potency and integrity of Alexander Technique for improving energy and sustained vigour in everyday life”.

Jasmine Christie says:

“I started Alexander Technique lessons with lower back pain from a series of sports injuries.  After seeing different physiotherapists and doing gym rehab programmes I still couldn’t get back to my peak fitness.

From just the first session with Jann I realized it wasn’t the injuries causing the ongoing problems.  It was how I used my body and how unconsciously I was doing that. Jann was brilliant at illustrating how my body could move or rest with ease.  It gave me this amazing sense of lightness reminiscent of childhood.

Jann is a wealth of knowledge and so approachable and I am happy to write about her skills and character. She was really patient with my unconscious actions and a generous teacher helping me develop awareness and learn direction. Alexander Technique seriously is a life changing process.  After lessons you just can’t go back to the old unconscious ways whether out running, playing sport or watching TV!”
