Lawrie Wright MSTAT
TEACHER OF THE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE
Reading / Berkshire
Tel: 07803 339221
Having lived with agonising neck and shoulder pain for many years, I had tried pretty much everything on the market with varying degrees of failure. I must confess I didn't hold out a great deal of hope when I booked an appointment to see Lawrie.
The appointment date duly arrived. The door was answered by a calm, warm and reassuring individual who put me at ease instantly. Lawrie connected with me as a person and his gentle, affable manner filled me with confidence.
He communicated effectively throughout, explained what he was doing as he was doing it and the upshot is, I walked out of there feeling like a million dollars. Lawrie Wright isn't a miracle worker but he comes pretty close. What I learnt from him has greatly reduced my pain levels. Even the very worst days I have now beat the best days I had before the consultation hands-

Alexander Technique lessons gave me a really good grounding in body awareness which I still use to this day, in every day life and activities including sitting at the computer and hoovering! I particularly liked the directions it ingrained in me to allow my body to lengthen when standing, sitting, swimming and cycling; and I love the fact that it teaches you to use your body in the way it was designed to be used, which I am sure has helped lessen the aches and pains I would otherwise get from getting older.

I took one to one Alexander lessons with Lawrie about 10 years ago and have found them absolutely invaluable. They have had a long-
I used to get back ache very frequently, whenever walking even short distances, standing for any length of time, or carrying anything. I felt that it was probably posture related, but efforts that I had made to improve this via my GP had only made it worse. My back pain did, however go completely and has not returned, as a result of postural improvements brought about by Alexander lessons.
Just as importantly, I also feel that the knowledge I have gained and the changes made to my way of moving have been crucial in preventing further injury to my body over the years. Alexander Technique has enabled me to lose bad habits I had picked up and get back to a more natural posture and way of moving when sitting, standing, walking and doing other everyday activities. It also enables me to identify and correct unhealthy postural responses to sitting at a computer, stress etc.
Lawrie is a wonderful, very natural teacher. He is encouraging, sensitive, respectful and very patient. He makes the sessions enjoyable and relaxing, and instils confidence in his students. He is able to explain very clearly the principles of the technique, and show how they can be integrated into day to day activities, to prevent problems occurring in future.
Many of the Alexander principles are very simple yet crucial. Once you know them, they feel so clearly and obviously true and vitally important to prevent injury, that you cannot imagine being without them. They become guiding principles in both activity and repose.
