What to expect..

A through and skilled assessment will take place on your first visit.

 

A detailed history is crucial, to identify any movement or environmental factors that may have caused the injury.

 

Previous injuries will also be considered. Often these factors have a direct influence on muscle tension through the body, causing changes in movement and posture.

 

A breathing assessment will help identify dysfunctional patterns. How we breathe influences how well our nervous system is working, in order to promote healing and repair.

 

Successful treatment using manual therapy, movement based exercises and breathing techniques, will help resolve symptoms quickly. Education on the cause of your problem will ensure you get better and remain injury free long term.

What to expect..

Conscious Connected BreathWork is an effective technique, to improve unhelpful breathing patterns, to access our bodies innate capacity for self-healing and self regulation, to achieve better physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.

 

Conscious connected breathing, is a simple and effective breathing technique with a long history.  When we connect more deeply with our breath, we begin to connect with our body, feeling into emotions rather than constantly seeking to manage them with the rational mind. We start to feel more present, peaceful and have greater clarity of thought, by tuning into a felt sense within the body. 

 

‘There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy’ 

                                                                                                            Friedrich Nietzsche

 

I also use coaching, sound, movement and body mapping, a a form of ‘acupressure’. This combination of techniques helps to expand the breath by removing muscular restrictions that have been used over years to manage stressful situations and difficult emotions. The result is a improved energy levels, oxygen, the release of emotional blockages and physical restrictions.

THANKS TO STEVE...

I would just like to express my thanks to Steve for the wonderful treatment I received last week.
