We specialise in a human-based approach with expert hands-on manual therapy supplemented with tailored therapeutic exercise and individualised home care advice. Long treatment sessions of 40 or 60 minutes (or even longer if required) allow time to explore your condition holistically, get to the core of the issue, and provide the best quality therapy. Our priority is working in partnership with you for optimal healing, wherever you are in your healing journey.
The modalities we use include:
- Massage – including soft tissue, deep tissue, trigger point and myofascial release
- Joint Mobilisation
- Craniosacral techniques
- Taping (eg for postural support)
- Exercise – includes Yoga, Therapeutic Exercise and Core Strengthening
- Relaxation practices
- Breathing techniques
- Tailored advice for your condition and lifestyle eg posture and manual handling
