This page is dedicated to all of us who seek more humane and meaningful approaches to rehabilitation and movement pedagogy, for ourselves, our patients and the people close to us.
I am Alexandros Ioannou, I am an MSc physiotherapist and for the last 20 years I have been working in the field of neurological rehabilitation. I have worked with children with motor dysfunctions, with geriatric patients but mainly with the adult neurological patient. Over the years I have also treated people with Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, traumatic brain injuries and other more rare disorders of the peripheral or central nervous system. For the last 10 years I have been using the Feldenkrais method working individually or in groups with my patients. At the present moment I am based in Athens offering individual sessions and group lessons with pedagogical and therapeutic interest. In addition, I provide mentoring services and training for physiotherapists as well as for caregivers.
Since 2003 I have been teaching at the Technological Educational Institution of Athens and at the University of West Attica, lecturing and supervising students in their clinical practice. During my academic engagement I have infused students with my love for neurology, Oliver Sachs, Dr. Luria, individual patient histories (pathography) and "neurological novels". The Feldenkrais method gave me an additional opportunity to share my interest in the diverse aspects of movement. Since 2010 I have made numerous presentations at physiotherapy conferences, workshops in academic institutions in Greece and abroad both on undergraduate and postgraduate level.
As part of my occupation as a physiotherapist and Feldenkrais practitioner I see clients individually, run classes on weekly basis both in English and Greek language, and conduct specialist workshops for physiotherapists and other health-care practitioners
