    Gait Realignment Therapy

    Move without pain

    Eliminate pain and optimise movement

I had a knee issue I couldn't resolve. I only had a couple of sessions. They worked really well.  Gait Realignment Therapy Jonathan
I was recommended surgery for a slipped disc and was in so much pain I believed this was the only option. I booked a package with Tish and made a few amendments to my lifestyle from shoes to changing my position at work.  I am a total convert to gait therapy as I am now pain free.  It feels like a miracle!

As recently showcased in ‘Doctor in the House’ by Gary Ward – Anatomy in Motion founder – see the video here

Gait realignment therapy treats the natural flow of the body in motion as opposed to having your alignment changed on a massage couch, or even trying to focus on isolated muscle groups and working hard to recruit muscles. Gait therapy is a form of movement/physical therapy based on the Anatomy in Motion method (AiM) to take you away from tension and pain. Gary Ward has created the map of how we find centre in our body as we move. His flow motion model looks at how you walk and move in your everyday activities to help you find a way to live with ease or better function. As such it is the most advanced bio-mechanical and gait analysis and treatment on offer in the UK. 

The way you move everyday is probably not natural. Hunched over a computer at a desk, slouching on the sofa, the shoes you wear, the bags you carry. Your body has to compensate and shifts your alignment to do so but this can cause pressure. And that pressure can result in tension and pain.

Using the most natural movement you put your body back in the right place. Effectively you remind the body that it does not have to compensate. You realign the body in a mechanical sense to reduce the pressure.

Natural corrective exercises re-educate your brain and body and to get both talking to each other so that the whole body moves the way it should – with ease. This is more than strengthening a muscle. You will get the whole body talking.

Is it for me?

A long term solution out of tension and pain

Luckily the way you walk is a hard wired circuit in your brain, drumming along in the background, in the same way as breathing, chewing and swallowing. So if you imagine a drum has gone off beat, this treatment re-sets that beat.  That beat will not change, as long as you move well.  Of course, you can’t change your job, give up your sofa and not wear shoes.  But you will re-educate you body and brain and understand how you can do a few simple movements regularly to just re-check the beat. You will understand it.  It may take one session, it may take up to 6, but then you will get a body awareness to always be able to take the pressure away
