The physio corner – Einar Fagerheim – Physiotherapist and Timani teacher
My primary focus is musicians' health, but I also help people who are not musicians.
I do not have a public operating agreement.
Timani is a methodology for teaching musicians to use their bodies smarter. This way they can play better music and prevent injuries.
For 20 years I worked as a physiotherapist at hospitals, institutions, in the municipal health service and in private practice.
"I have tried most things before, but Timani is great for me!"
Einar Fagerheim is a very skilled professional who can help musicians with increased awareness of sitting position and muscle use when playing. I can wholeheartedly recommend him!
Einar Fagerheim´s teaching has been the best help for me! Wear and sores in neck, shoulders and arms. With simple exercises and guidance in a sitting / working position, my neck has "let go" and my work is much easier to perform. He is an incredibly good teacher and has great knowledge of physiology. I gained very good faith in what he taught me. It works in the long run. Have tried most things before, but Timani is great for me! Would highly recommend his treatment!
Through explanation, exercises and guidance, Einar Fagerheim has taught me how I can use part of the core muscles to stand, sit and walk in a way that is more energy-saving and less stressful. I have had a very good effect on back problems after a series of courses in just 3 meetings. In addition to getting to know my body better, I have received several good relaxation exercises. Einar explains and shows in an understandable way, and has a high professional integrity. Recommended for both musicians and non-musicians.
Einar Fagerheim has primarily helped me with the mental aspect of playing concerts. We have worked on how to work with oneself to calm the nerves, intensify focus and gain control and calmness over the body using various techniques. He has subsequently also helped me with how I relate physically to the instrument in the best possible way. Einar is a skilled professional who illustrates how the body works and how it works against the performance on the instrument. He tackles things I never wanted to do myself and it helps me see my attitude to instruments in a new way!
I have consulted Einar Fagerheim for both physiotherapy and Timani teaching. I always find that Einar takes the time to listen to my questions, and then do a thorough analysis and find good methods and solutions to challenges and problems. As a musician and cellist, it has been reassuring to go to a musician who has so much knowledge about the performing aspect both physically and mentally. After each class, I have experienced improvement and progress through exercises Einar has created for me, and I have discovered new ways of using my body that I did not know were possible.
