Priya Lutener DC MMCA

Priya, graduated from the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in 2015.

Her passion to understand and work with the human body was enhanced by 20 years of experience participating in dance and movement classes such as ballet, tap and contemporary jazz. She completed the National Diploma program in Dance and Musical Theatre at Bodywork Company Dance Studios in Cambridge and completed an internship at the Broadway Dance Centre in New York; these experiences have helped her develop an understanding of the importance of balance, coordination and core strength in movement, necessities in the rehabilitation of patients. Priya utilizes these experiences in her daily practice in clinic when treating and advising her patients.

Priya has a strong focus in how Chiropractic care can promote the development of babies and children, also the benefits of receiving Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy. She has undertaken postgraduate training courses specific for pregnancy, babies and children provided by the Royal College of Chiropractors and the International Chiropractic Paediatric Association.

Priya currently works with the European Council on Chiropractic Education as a member of the quality assurance and accreditation committee, helping to ensure the ongoing development of the Chiropractic education throughout Europe.

About me: 
I studied and practised the Feldenkrais method for more than 20 years.  The Feldenkrais Method helped me in many ways from developing a methodology to approach and simplify complex problems, to finding different breathing options, and, last but not least, to move away from excruciating shoulder pain.
As a scientist, I found the Feldenkrais approach to human movement and learning the most sophisticated and complete one available to date.
The Feldenkrais comprehensive approach encompasses the role of the nervous system, its plasticity, developmental and autonomous aspects, the role of the gravitational fields as an external force as well as aspects of the internal constraints dictated by the skeletal body mechanics. It is not surprising in this respect the consideration that the method is gaining amongst the new generation of neuroscientists.
There are many aspects of human learning that are still beyond our current understanding and we should not be mistaken by thinking that this approach can deal magically with all the issues that we can experience but the Feldenkrais Method is an invaluable tool to find in ourselves resources to help us during our life journey.
How do I work?
Every person is a new story for me. To be effective in my approach I need to have the person in front of me.  I give myself time to understand where the person is, his/her habits and where and how we can work together.

I have acquired a series of wonderful tools and techniques from my teachers and my personal enquiries, but I never know in advance what I will do, I will tailor my approach to your specific situation and meet you where you are.

Thanks to my physics background, I have a deep understanding of how forces transmit through the skeleton and how different sets of muscles are involved in allowing a movement and make it more efficient.

Individual Sessions
The individual session that we will develop will be unique for you and you only.  We will explore together a series of movements that will engage your brain in a surprising and pleasurable way, and will be adapted to address your particular needs and concerns.

Sessions are often made of slow, delicate movements and gentle variations allowing the nervous system to discover a better alignment of the musculoskeletal system and more efficient pattern of movement.

Through touch and words, I help you to direct your attention and awareness from problems to new options and solutions.

I will help you to recognise what is necessary and what is superfluous in a movement, together we will explore and refine your evolving self image.
