When I was in my 20’s I experienced a sudden and mysterious onset of crippling pain and swelling in my leg. I was unable to walk for about 6 months.
Despite having a blackbelt in Kempo and being deeply immersed in various mind-body “health practices” I was still not immune from dis-ease. I had thought that staying fit, meditating and eating well was enough to guarantee my health. It turns out that there is more to the picture.
So I set out on a quest to find "the answer". My inner mad scientist came out and I started to experiment on myself with different healing modalities.
My quest eventually led me to The Feldenkrais Method ®. Working 1-on-1 with a practitioner gave me incredible changes within one session. I knew I had to learn this type of magicians work ;-)
I immediately signed up to a 4-year professional training. The combination of the training, getting into transformational men's work, and also having a major meltdown in my personal life at the same time, meant I came out the other side a different person. It was kinda like going through a mincer.
On the other side I am now a humbler, more service oriented and mincier form of Tom.
I now realise that I can and thoroughly do enjoy helping people (Particularly in the realm of movement and the physical body). I see incredible potential in people and I also have a range of tools to help bring some of that potential to fruition.
So if you're having difficulty with your movement or you just want to improve what you already do well, then let me know. My primary ways of working with people at this stage are 1-on-1 lessons and group classes.
