Sheila, Wellington, Individual Sessions
I had been experiencing benign positional vertigo that had remained unchanged for several months. I could keep going with my normal life, but could not lie down on my back without the world swimming around in nauseating fashion. I slept with two pillows, careful to stay on my left side, and at Feldenkrais classes, had my head propped on three folded blankets when lying on my back.
Alan suggested an individual session. We started with me lying on my back having the usual head support. Alan worked on connecting my whole structure. At the end he carefully turned my head from side to side, then slid out one blanket. I waited for the spinning to start but no, all was well. Another blanket disappeared and then the third – I was flat on my back and the vertigo had gone.
I said Alan had performed a miracle – he said he had provided the conditions for the body to heal itself. All I know is, if the vertigo does come back, I’ll skip the doctor and the neurologist and go back for another session.
