Diane in Adelaide felt great relief having had excruciating back pain for two days after a long reading session, followed by some heavy gardening.
Greg in Fitzroy found that his lower back pain ceased after a workshop in which I gave advice on adjusting the chair seat so it tilted forward rather than back.
Ruth in Carlton came to me with excruciating shoulder pain. It went after one lesson, though she came for many more lessons to address underlying tension.
A worker in Southbank told me that she could stir food on the stove without pain – after following my advice to her and her work colleagues at their monthly work meeting
Virginia, manager : Physically I have noticed some huge differences in some aspects of life - tackling hills is one of them. I have always struggled to climb hills and stairs, quickly becoming breathless. I marvel at how your teaching of Alexander Technique has helped - I recently enjoyed (not just endured) climbing Mt Cathedral (at the Cathedral Ranges in NE Victoria). There are many other ways that Alexander Technique has benefited me, the learning doesn't cease (July 2012).
Julia, office worker : Thanks for yesterday - it was very relaxing and I'm already being a lot more aware of how I'm moving (May 2012 ).
Shane, retail : I’ve learned to ask for it … don’t tell yourself what to do (May 2012).
Elizabeth, myotherapist : After just one Alexander class with Jim and Anne, I experienced my first good night's sleep since giving birth 15 months ago (March 2012).
Diane, marketing : The pain in my neck/shoulder has all but gone, which I attribute largely to the posture tips you gave me: THANK YOU! It is amazing how subtle changes can make such a huge difference. I'm thrilled (January 2012).
Mimi, masseur : Jim offered a lesson in Alexander Technique when I told him about problems with my right hand that I had for over a year. The thumb couldn’t move sometimes when I tried to use my hands, and the palm felt very hard. I couldn’t hold a fork or chopsticks properly, or cut with a knive. Rubbing it with my left hand relieved the pain, but the problem kept returning.
