Testimonials about Paul

“I always come out of your sessions feeling nice and light … I want to go for a run afterwards, and my hips don’t bother me so much.”
                                                        Michael F
                                                        PE teacher and osteoarthritis sufferer

“After my first session with you I was able to walk as far as the Beresford Hotel in Sauchiehall St... that was quite remarkable.”
                                                        Elizabeth A
                                                        MS sufferer

“I thought it was just going to be another method for relaxation. But when you were taking us through the semi-supine exercise, I began to realise there was a lot more going on. I felt subtle changes in my lower back… and afterwards I felt like I was walking around the room in quite a different way… Very easy and light feeling.”
                                                        David G
                                                        retired teacher

“I just wanted to say thanks for the [ running ] session yesterday, it gave me some really helpful tips and I am looking forward to trying a few things out this week.”
                                                        Richard T

“I didn’t think I needed any help with my posture but it was fascinating to feel like everyday movements had become effortless… It was very useful when I had to rehabilitate a broken shoulder a few months later.”
                                                        Annette G

Testimonials about the Alexander Technique

“ 97% of people with back pain could benefit by learning the Alexander Technique - it is only a very small minority of back pain sufferers that require medical intervention such as surgery.”
                                                        Jack Stern
                                                        Spinal neurosurgeon

“ I can immediately tell the difference between actors who have studied the Alexander Technique, and those who haven’t.”
                                                        Sam Mendes
                                                        Academy Award-winning director 
                                                        (American Beauty)

“ I find the Alexander Technique very helpful in my work. Things happen without you trying. They get you to be light and relaxed. You must get an Alexander teacher to show it to you.”
                                                        John Cleese
                                                        Comedian and actor

“ I was dubious about the effects of the Alexander Technique when I first went in to experience it, but found out almost immediately that the benefits were total - both physically and mentally - and, happily, have also been long-lasting.”
                                                        Joanne Woodward
                                                        Actress

“ Alexander's work is of first class importance and investigation by the medical profession is imperative.”
                                                        British Medical Journal

“ Mr Alexander's method lays hold of the individual as a whole, as a self-vitalising agent. He reconditions and re-educates the reflex mechanisms and brings their habits into normal relation with the functioning of the organism as a whole. I regard this method as thoroughly scientific and educationally sound.”
                                                        Professor George E Coghill
                                                        Nobel Prize Winning Anatomist
                                                        and Physiologist

“ The Alexander Technique transformed my life. It is the result of an acknowledged genius. I would recommend it to anyone.”
                                                        Tony Buzan
                                                        author of 'Use Your Head

“ The Alexander Technique helped a long standing back problem and to get a good night's sleep after many years of tossing and turning.”
                                                        Paul Newman
                                                        Actor

“ Alexander established not only the beginnings of a far- reaching science of the apparently involuntary movements we call reflexes, but a technique of correction and self- control which forms a substantial addition to our very slender resources in personal education.”
                                                        George Bernard Shaw
                                                        Playwright

“It is one thing to teach the need of a return to the individual man as the ultimate agency in whatever mankind and society collectively can accomplish. It is another thing to discover the concrete procedure by which this greatest of all tasks can be executed. And this indispensable thing is exactly what Mr Alexander has accomplishe.”
                                                        Professor John Dewey
                                                        American philosopher

“ The Alexander Technique gives us all things we have been looking for in a system of physical education: relief from strain due to maladjustment, and constant improvement in physical and mental health. We cannot ask for more from any system; nor, if we seriously desire to alter human beings in a desirable direction, can we ask for any less.”
                                                        Aldous Huxley
                                                        Author

“ The Alexander Technique really works.”
                                                        Roald Dahl
                                                        Author

“ The Alexander Technique is based on exceptionally sophisticated observation, not only by means of vision, but to a surprising extent by using the sense of touch. I noticed with growing amazement, very striking improvements in such diverse things as high blood pressure, breathing, depth of sleep, overall cheerfulness, mental alertness, resilience against outside pressures, and also in such refined skills as the playing of a stringed musical instrument.”
