I started Alexander lessons with Finn a couple of years ago after back surgery. The Alexander technique has made me aware of my head and neck posture in all my daily activities and has significantly improved my posture. I recommend anyone with back/neck pain to give the Alexander technique a go.

I have been having Alexander lessons for 12 months and have noticed a significant improvement in pain, posture and general wellbeing.  Finns approach is professional, friendly and thorough. I would not hesitate to recommend him as an Alexander Technique teacher.

It was my wife who persuaded me to embark on the Alexander Technique. Looking back some 2 months I now realise how little I knew of my body. Finn has taught me so much and my body, given at my age, is working far more efficiently. The “crouch” has disappeared and friends have commented on how much better I look. My golf swing has improved and I now walk better. Thank you very much Finn.

I had surgery on my spine in 2003, a micro-discectomy at L4/5. Since which time I have kept myself supple with Pilates, but because the brain is an active organ – in this case both to the original injury and to surgery, it tends to over-react to potentially back-damaging activities. Result – huge muscle spasm which I can’t free myself from, and that spasm causes pressure and inevitable pain on the weak part of my back – totally unnecessarily. Cue Finn Kellow Webb and the Alexander Technique. Health is not simply a physical state. Finn and the Alexander Technique shine a light on this truth. He has found a way to help my brain switch off its defensive, muscle spasm soldiers. By becoming conscious of how I hold myself – I notice the huge tension and pressure that my mind places on my body – so much that it causes pain. Finn through the Alexander Technique enables me to find the reality beyond that mental response – so that if I DO less, let go, surrender – the body lets go and like the ripples on a puddle in reverse, the relaxed body in turn brings peace of mind. In short – I have less pain and more peace because of the Alexander Technique and Finn is a wonderful teacher – enabling me to BE rather than DO the Alexander Technique – which affects in a wonderful way – my whole life.

I had become almost housebound with mild MS and severe lumbar back pain, despite surgery, reducing my mobility to only a few yards of walking and the inability to stand up straight. I was exhausted and low in spirit. The Alexander Technique seemed worth a try even though I am nearly eighty. After 3 months of regular lessons with Finn I can now stand up straight and enjoy greater freedom of movement and balance. Most importantly I come away from lessons with a lightness of spirit that I have not known for years. I have more to learn but am happy to continue and to practise the all important lessons.

After years of trying different therapies to help my back problems and being faced with a double operation on my lumbar and cervical spine, I decided to start from zero. That meant starting with posture and learning to use my body properly in my everyday life. I started seeing Finn and after a few lessons I finally had my light bulb moment, I understood that I had to trust myself to let go and “be” and not hold myself tight worrying I might hurt myself more and end up in more pain then usual. I have had to deconstruct what I thought was the right way of walking, sitting, picking a book up, basically every movement. I was taught how to re-calibrate, and do all these things and more, properly, with no pain, easily and effortlessly.  It has not been easy to let go of decades of taught posture, but the difference it has made to my life along with yoga and Pilates has been life changing. I am no longer having the operations, I am pain free much of the day and it is getting better every day. I now try to mindfully move about and when I do something the old way, I do it again! It is not a quick fix, it takes dedication and hard work, but the effort has been so worth it. After all if you haven’t got your health, life can be a misery.

 
Thank you Finn!
