"Very highly recommended indeed, whether your issues are physical/physiological (e.g. back ache, RSI) or more of a mental or spiritual nature.


Fumiaki is the best Alexander teacher I have ever been to see, and I have seen quite a large number over the years. He seems to have a deep, instinctual understanding of what the body-mind needs for full health, and a subtle ability to impart calmness and healing through the use of his hands and his voice. You cannot do better than to book some ongoing sessions with him."

Eldad Parrin

"Fumiaki is a professional and knowledgeable therapist in both Craniosacral therapy and Alexander technique . He gave me confidence in his ability to explain the therapy and procedure so that I had a clear understanding.

Fumiaki’s expertise and gentle technique enabled me to relax and find healing from Craniosacral therapy for painful arthritis.

The Alexander technique helped me to understand and realign my posture caused by long term painful arthritis."


Val Turner

"The work is amazing and quite mysterious. Over time I have realised that most of the problems I arrived with have gone without my realising at the time. I feel my body is finding ways to heal itself with the support and guidance of Fumiaki. The combination of Craniosacral Therapy and Alexander Technique works very well and I am slowly getting it!"


Craiosacral Therapy

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral Therapy is a holistic approach that recognises the interconnectedness of the body, mind, and spirit. By working with the body's inherent wisdom, Craniosacral Therapy supports and enhances the body's ability to heal itself, promoting overall health and vitality.

During a Craniosacral Therapy session, I pay close attention to the delicate movements of your body. Instead of trying to force or manipulate any changes, I simply hold your body gently and allow it to be as it is. This process helps release any restrictions or compressions within your body, and gradually your body starts to unwind on its own. The body responds positively to the Craniosacral Therapy’s gentle approach, as there is no resistance or oppositional force are imposed. My clients often tell me that it is profoundly relaxing and some say it's almost as if their body is floating in the air.

"Over time, I have come to understand that the Breath of Life is a divine presence only appreciated in a state of stillness and unknowing... It arises out of a profound Stillness that lies at the heart of all form and is the fulcrum from which all form arises...  It cannot be manipulated or used by the practitioner in any way. One can only humbly witness its creative action within and between human systems.

Alexander Technique

What is the Alexander technique?

The Alexander Technique offers a unique approach to improving your physical and mental health. By learning to move with more ease and awareness, you can experience greater freedom of movement, improved posture, and enhanced overall well-being and vitality.

Developed by F.M. Alexander in the late 19th century, the Alexander Technique has gained popularity in various fields such as performing arts, sports, and healthcare. It is based on the principle that the mind and body are interconnected. By becoming aware of your harmful movement and postural habits, you can unlearn and transform them into more positive and efficient habits. The Alexander Technique can enhance mobility, improves posture and performance, while also providing relief from chronic stiffness, tension, and stress.


The Alexander Technique is often used by musicians, actors, dancers, and athletes to improve their performance and prevent injuries. The Alexander Technique can help you move more efficiently and effortlessly, leading to better coordination and balance.


In addition, the Alexander Technique can help you manage stress and anxiety by teaching you how to release tension and maintain a calm and focused state of mind. By learning to let go of unnecessary muscular tension, you can experience a sense of ease and relaxation in your daily activities.
