Meet Alexandra Durrant
International presenter and instructor on health, wellbeing and pain relief.
I’m Alexandra, I graduated from Keele University in 2012 with a BSc Honours Degree in Physiotherapy.
During my Physiotherapy training, I volunteered in a long-term Neuro therapy centre who then, when I qualified, offered me a year contract to work and conducted a small study exploring the benefits of exercise in long term neurological conditions. I mainly worked with patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s and Huntington’s in this role.
I then went on to work within the National health service for a community neurological team in London for three years. I worked with many different long term and acute conditions such as MS, Stroke, Motor Neurone Disease and many more.
I have travelled to India, Australia, New Zealand and Peru, where I explored some ancient treatment methods as well as getting involved in research. In between my travels, I worked as a physiotherapist as a locum in adult mental health, rapid response teams, various community orthopaedic teams as well as private work in London.
Through the years I have become a specialist in hands-on treatment which includes trigger point massage, Deep, transverse frictions, Neuromuscular energizing therapy, Indian head massage, Thai bodywork, Reflexology, Acupuncture, Reiki and deep relaxation training.
I am a juggler and unicyclist as well as a musician in my spare time. I enjoy music and circus festivals in the summer months. I work at a number of festivals providing a physiotherapy service to performers and staff.
I came to work in this clinic in September 2019 for three days a week to be in the beautiful countryside of Staffordshire and share my time between here and my home town in North Wales.
I am also currently involved in research into chronic pain.
