THE WORDS OF WHO HAS WORKED WITH ME
I suffer from a brain disorder which has caused slowed movement, stiffness and rigidity and unsteadiness when walking. I found out about this just before I started training with Eduardo five months ago. I was feeling rather depressed about the diagnosis and, because of the unsteadiness, I was finding it difficult to do things like negotiate stairs and escalators.
My experience of working with Eduardo has been very positive. Through rhythm movement patterns and other exercises, he has helped restore my movement awareness, improved my gait and my balance and steadiness. Our sessions have always been challenging, but fun.
Physically, my posture is better as is my balance. I am walking much better and I now feel confident walking up and down stairs and getting on and off escalators. This has made a huge difference to my life from a practical perspective. It has also helped me to feel more confident.
Modern science is only starting to understand neuroplasticity – the capacity of the brain to change and heal itself – but I feel that, under Eduardo’s guidance and through the use of activity and movement, my brain is finding new pathways to overcome the problems I am experiencing.
