Dr. Brian Alman, creator of The Last Row Perspective, is one of the world’s leading authorities in the field of mind-body health and wellness. He has worked for more than thirty-five years bringing his powerful wellness techniques to tens of thousands of people. And through his books, programs, speaking engagements, and TV & radio appearances he has reached hundreds of thousands more, and helped them to achieve amazing personal growth.
Dr. Alman was introduced to the concept of mind-body wellness through his own pain. As a child he lived with debilitating back pain, caused by malformed vertebrae. Through his studies and practice, Dr. Alman found mental and physical pain relief through techniques that encourage the mind and the body to work together and heal themselves.
With a private practice in Encinitas, California (near San Diego), Dr. Alman meets with local clients, servicing the areas of Del Mar, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe, and Orange County. He also has many international clients he speaks with over Skype, and who come to sunny California for one-on-one sessions.
Dr. Alman earned his Master’s and PhD in Clinical Psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology, and his Bachelor’s at Suffolk University. He has taught at the University of Paris, University of California San Diego, and Harvard Medical School. And has also trained in MindBody healing, meditation, self-hypnosis, and guided imagery by world-expert Milton H. Erickson in Phoenix, AZ.
First and foremost, Dr. Alman is a devoted parent. He is also a true friend, has almost endless patience, and demonstrates unconditional acceptance.
Dr. Alman dedicates his personal time to teaching wellness sessions to children. Using lessons from his book ‘Less Stress for Kids’, Dr. Alman visits local elementary schools helping children, and teachers, learn how to effectively manage stress.
Dr. Alman lives in Encinitas, California with his youngest daughter. He enjoys surfing and swimming in the ocean; golf and its meditative qualities; and has been a motorcycle enthusiast since he was 16, and still enjoys casual, coastal rides.
He believes he can learn from each individual he comes into contact with and continues to learn everyday; considering himself a work in progress.
