Alexander Technique in Letchworth, HertsStop your pain by learning how to improve your body use
Fed up of being in pain and want to get on with living? I can help you. Alexander Technique helps you to lead a healthy pain free life. That’s why I call it a technique for living. I’ve been through it myself with a slipped disc and sciatica.
Alexander Technique really helps with back pain, neck pain, sciatica, slipped discs, shoulder pain, RSI, osteoarthritis, recovery and prevention of injury as well as many other pain related conditions. Its more than likely that your condition can be helped and the quality of life you experience will improve.
I discovered the Alexander Technique to deal with my slipped disc and sciatica. Pulling my hamstring in a training session at my university rowing club, I spent six months battling with the injury and the follow on effects to keep racing. Now unable to walk, I was taken to expert after expert, with no result. Unknown to me and all but one expert, I had been rowing with a slipped disc undiagnosed. After 10 months on my back I was sceptical, but with 3 months of Alexander Technique I was walking again.
Finishing university I was introduced to Walter Carrington, whose hands were simply amazing. I enrolled on his three year, full time and STAT approved teacher training course; completing over 2200 hours of training. This training course is world renowned and requires dedication in order to achieve the quality required. I qualified in December 2007 and have worked with hundreds of people to help them achieve their goals. I have taught at drama schools such as Italia Conti and LAMDA. Although I do work with all kinds of people I mostly work with those in pain.
I slipped my disc seven times after I had my initial lessons. Each time I put them back in by myself simply using Alexander Technique. The last slip was in 2005 and it has not happened since. From my personal experience, Alexander Technique has powerful and long lasting effects that preventing back, spine and other musculoskeletal related problems. It is a valuable tool for any individual to apply to themselves and I can show you how.
Ed has a rare gift for healing, and shows great dedication to his work. His therapeutic touch is given with patience and sensitivity, with focused care and attention, allowing time for each individual limb and body part to reintegrate with the whole. The effect on me of his treatment was to increase my awareness of how I carry my body, how it carries me, and to bring me more deeply in touch with myself. Even after the initial treatment I felt a great benefit.”Rancho Prime
We were lucky enough to be seen at short notice by Ed Fisher who specialises in the Alexander Technique, exercising gentle realignment. Ed made us feel at ease from the start, explaining the Technique and demonstrating a series of positions to attempt at home. The painful areas vanished after the treatment for which we were very grateful. We would definitely recommend and certainly visit again for further treatment as required.Janine Marcantonio and Matthew Dawe
Ed is an awesome teacher. I found him at a very difficult and painful time in my life – mentally and physically in lots of pain, and he introduced me to a palpable feeling of peace and freedom in my mind and body, that was totally new to me at the time. It allowed the space for a lot of deep healing and was the beginning of creating a whole new deeply nourishing life for myself. I have life skills for life that bring about the truest sense of well-being in all aspects of my life.Sarah Warman
Ed’s instruction is sensitive and astute. His sessions are handled with warmth, and are direct and effective. He opened me to a new way of experiencing physicality, which was naturally applicable to every day life. he glows with enthusiasm for his subject, and the world of alexander technique. I highly recommend him as a practitioner. I’ve been semi supine ever since.Josh Press
Edward is a fantastic Alexander Technique practitioner with a great approach, especially to someone new to the technique. Having suffered with constant back, neck and shoulder pain for over ten years, I had tried almost every other treatment available, without success. Since attending Alexander sessions with Edward I have improved considerably.Seb Williams
I saw Ed for close to 40 sessions. As an actor, yoga teacher and massage therapist I am always seeking ways to release and embody my physical potential. The sessions with Ed were revelatory in many ways and led to many releases physically and also energetically. It is a testament to his teaching that some years after the sessions I continue to lie in Alexander position when I wake up and before I go to bed. I have a greater sense of freedom, ease, release and expansion having worked with him and from continuing to lie down and let my body do what it needs to do. I highly recommend the work with Ed to those seeking to embody more of who they are by letting go of the things that they no longer need.PM
