Are you putting up with pain?
Being more sedentary, working in different positions, sports, accidents, and trauma can cause some differences in movement and an increasing number of people continue to suffer. Are you looking for a solution out of tension and pain?
Are you suffering and looking for a solution that is not drugs, injections, fusions or surgery. Have you had less movement due to working from home, illness or accidents and realised this limited movement means your posture and alignment maybe off centre? Or perhaps you woke up one morning and thought ‘I can’t move’ or ‘is this what they mean by sciatica’. A GP call later and you are on some strong painkillers and googling. Or perhaps this is way back and you haven’t had your pain resolved yet been signed off any course of action thinking ‘great, what now’.
What is this, what’s the wedge and foot?
Your feet carry you around. You may go to physio/chiropractors/osteopaths for your knee or back or neck pain and they target these areas and can do some wonderful manipulations that last for a while but then the pain comes back. We help you search for the cause of the pain. As your feet carry you around, take the steps, your hip or neck pain could be to do with what experience your foot is missing. And we may help gently guide your foot back to it’s original setting knowing the ground is a safe place to walk. We may also spot other things, what your core muscles or neck maybe doing in certain phases of gait. And when you have a wedge temporarily they suddenly work in a really efficient way. This is not an orthotic. It’s an experience. You may re teach your feet it’s ok to move in a really nice way.

What we do?
We have been working for more than 10 years with different techniques to suit you. These come from many modalities including Anatomy in Motion, Spiral Stabilization, Katy Bowman’s Nutritious Movement, Pilates, the MUTU System, Yoga and relaxation techniques such as hypnotherapy. We often find someone comes in with one issue such as back pain and then the history highlights another such as a pelvic floor issue. We initially address the most obvious issue which could be that you have a rotated pelvis, or excessive arch in your lower back, or one foot turned out. We usually assess how you walk, and if you can, how you get up and off the floor or up from a chair. And then work with you to think about how you are moving at home, such as always twisting one way to reach something, or picking up your child who is getting heavier by the day. We mostly work from referrals from osteopaths and physio therapists, or simply with people who have decided it’s time to find another solution. We are movement therapists who have racked up years of experience in seeing people move. Our approach is not to manipulate the area of pain but discover the cause and help you find the space to heal

Is it for me?

It is not a massage, it is not working from a massage bed, it is not a pill
