 My story so far....

 

First and foremost, I am a body-positive person. I am neither a skilled athlete, nor a super-fit individual, but where I have challenged my body, be it with strength or endurance, I am sure that I have lived my most memorable moments and had the greatest sense of reward. I believe that really using the gift of our physicality keeps us healthy in both body and mind.

Being strong is for everyone.

Movement and strength gives us confidence in oursleves, and builds self-esteem.

By the same token, not being able to move well, or worse, to find yourself in pain, can have a damaging effect our self-confidence and our mental health. Living with chronic, or long-term, physical pain will lead us to do less, and over time leave our bodies less resilient to cope with the everyday activities. Advice and support for our physical health is usually only saught when we are already in distress, and this can often mean further damage has already been done. If we can learn to listen to the messages our body is giving us early, we can address the underlying causes of pain, and restrictions in the range of movement before they become a more significant source of pain, and prevent further injury and tissue damage.

Movement keeps us young.

In our youth we often take our mobility for granted, but for most of us the process of aging will present us with some challenges. Modern life, and the pressures that come with it mean we usually have little time left in a day to focus on ourselves, and we tend to ignore a stiff joint or twinges in a muscle. Mild, long term pain becomes something we accept as part of getting older.

Don't ignore persistent pain. There is help.

Unlike perhaps our minds, our bodies behave in logical ways, and we now understand more than ever about human physiology.  we understand the relationships between moving well, and our soft tissues, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and fascia, we can take ownership of how to look after our body, and ultimately be able to live life to its fullest and longest.

I want to offer support, and encouragement, alongside soft tissue treatments to all of my clients on their journey to better physical health and wellbeing.

Why Soft Tissue Therapy?

The benefits of soft tissue treatment (STT) are well documented and play an important role for anyone involved in strenuous or repetitive activity, whether through sport, occupation or otherwise.

Soft tissue therapy is a combination of different manipulation techniques to treat both chronic and minor injuries. Soft tissue therapy is highly recommended for those aches and pains acquired through one’s lifestyle, not just for those injured through particiaption in sport.

Regular soft tissue treatment has the following effects on the body:

  • Increased mobility and flexibility of muscle tissue

  • Reduction in pain

  • Increased feeling of well-being

  • Relieve muscle pain, spasm and correct muscle imbalance

  • De-activate trigger points

  • Improve range of movement

  • Breakdown scar tissue & adhesions

  • Increase or decrease muscle tone

  • Improve postural awareness

  • Identify potential causes & assist in injury prevention

  • Speed up recovery from training & promote rehabilitation

  • Aid relaxation and mental preparation

  • Prevention of and early detection of possible injury

  • Forms part of a training regime to optimise performance

  • Get you back to full function following surgery/accidents/slips or falls

  • Correct dysfunctional movement patterns

Your first appointment will last 90 minutes and will include your first treatment. Postural assessment is also carried out to identify any underlying factors which can lead to assisting the treatment.

You will leave with a clear understanding of the issues and what we can do to improve your pain, movement and general wellbeing. If appropriate, you will be given a clear programme of exercises and stretches to follow at home. Further appointments will be 40 minutes.
