A qualified Physiotherapist and Pilates teacher, Alison McIntosh also has an advanced diploma in Sports Manual Therapy. She has worked in both Australia and overseas in Sports Physiotherapy, Rehabilitation and Ergonomic Physiotherapy. In 2010 Ali completed the 4 year training as Feldenkrais PractitionerI qualified as a physiotherapist in 1999 graduating from Curtin University and began working in private practice in 2000. In 2002 my love of travel took me over to Scotland where a 4 month holiday turned into an 8 year adventure.
I worked at Edinburgh University as a sports physiotherapist and during this time had many fantastic opportunities working and travelling with Scotland’s elite athletes’ particularly the Scottish hockey teams. I also worked in the field of ergonomics assessing different working environments all over mainland Scotland and the northern isles. During this time I pursued Pilates and acupuncture training in Britain and also returned to Australia to complete a post graduate diploma in sports manual therapy at UWA.
I became interested in Feldenkrais while living in the UK and travelled back to Australia twice a year for four years to complete the Feldenkrais training program graduating in 2009. I am passionate about the Feldenkrais method and continue to be amazed by the improvement it can bring to so many aspects of life for so many people. When I am not at work I love to spend time with my family and am kept extremely busy by my two gorgeous little daughters.
