Therapeutic Bodywork

My focus is on working with long-term chronic issues/conditions, to reduce the unnecessary impact they are having on daily life. These issues/conditions includes a spectrum from ‘simply’ relieving work and life stresses to working with Parkinson’s, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, ankylosing spondylitis, scoliosis, etc.

I use a variety of techniques/methods often in combination so that if one approach is not as effective as desired then there are others to draw on.

These methods include:

  • Myofascial Release (MFR)
  • Neuromuscular Techniques (NMT)
  • Muscle Energy Techniques (MET)
  • Positional Release Techniques (PRT)

When it becomes clear which techniques/methods have been effective then I provide/encourage specific client centred self-care strategies. We are after-all patterns that perpetuate themselves, and we need to find those that serve us and those that don’t.

I am a little cautious about using the word ‘treatment’ as this implies I am doing the thing that makes the difference, when in reality it is your system’s response to ‘treatment’ that is the healing.
