Dr. Edie Perry
With a double major in mathematics and accounting, Edie began her working life as a computer programmer before a series of events and a failing of traditional medicine led her on her true path of alternative medicine.
Studying several energy techniques led her to acupressure, then Edie enrolled at chiropractic school and she started to learn and practice the Feldenkrais Method. During the course she met her late husband Dr. Ron Perry, who treated Edie’s medical condition with huge success, then together they started to do more research and experiments to explore and develop treatment therapies and self-rehabilitation programs what became the Perry Method, Patterns of Physical Transformation.
During the next 30 years her insatiable curiosity led her to ceaselessly study. She got seriously involved in several healing techniques: energy work, acupressure, functional neurology, biofeedback and bodywork practice, cranial and osteopathic techniques, applied kinesiology, sensory based therapeutic systems, NLP and Bandler Technologies, meditation, Tai Chi and Chi Gung among many other related methods. She has lifelong interest and study in physiological correlates of mental and emotional processes and methods to change them; body-mind systems that focus on changing thinking to affect body. She got grounded in the value of building on existing research knowledge base and applying scientific method.
Edie currently lives in Florida and she has been traveling the world teaching the Perry Method to therapists, coaches, trainers, athletes, and health professionals.
