ELEMENTAL PRINCIPLES

As a physiotherapist, I combine a variety of hands-on treatments from different sources that work synergistically. it is a holistic approach that pays attention to all moving parts  of the body and how they interact.  I am interested in the problem you are having in relationship to your whole body. I keep in mind that all layers and systems of the body have movement and that they should move in harmony to function well.  

Your body is intelligent and has great capacity to adapt. However, there are times when we run out of adapt-ability. Treatment is tailored to your needs and is based on assessment of where your body is having the most difficulty adapting.

The hands-on treatments I use
are named according to the
systems of the body that they help

ELEMENTAL TREATMENTS

Visceral manipulation

VISCERAL MANIPULATION

Visceral Manipulation helps with freedom of movement of your internal organs (“viscera”). Your internal organs are wrapped in connective tissue (fascia) that connect them to each other and to the body wall. This also allows them to slide against each other as you move.

LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE THERAPY

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy helps improve efficiency of lymph fluid return to your heart from all corners of your body. This is important for elimination, detoxification, and immune function.

CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY

BRAIN WORK and

NEURAL MANIPULATION

Craniosacral Therapy, Brain Work and Neural Manipulation each in different ways help with your nervous system and how it is involved in your movement.

Given the potential for improved movement and function in multiple systems of the body, there is, in theory, a range of ‘off-label’ problems that might benefit to some degree from treatment. Each situation is individual. The aim is to help with any connective tissue and fluid constraint aspects of the problem.

If your health problem is complex and multifaceted you will likely benefit from support from other health care practitioners.

Some examples include:

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia (if there is an element of lymphatic system stagnation)
  • Dysautonomia (if there is an element of thoracic outlet/inlet compression)
  • Head injury, traumatic brain injury, concussion
  • Functional digestive difficulty
  • Stress and anxiety (which can express itself bodily in muscles and joints)

ELEMENTAL PROCESS

LISTEN

Your situation & your goals are individual. During your first appointment, I take the time to listen & understand what problems you are looking for help with & get a sense of how I might be able to help.

 

LOOK

I will look at your posture and movement to get a good sense of how your body organises itself, and in which area/s you are having the most difficulty.

 

FEEL

I feel for connective tissue & fluid tensions in your body to understand your patterns of restriction. The area of greatest difficulty may be in the area that bothers you most, but it may be elsewhere.

 

TREAT

I choose treatments based on what I feel during assessment. The treatments feel gentle as they match the tensions that are in your tissues, rather than forcing or fighting against them.

 

RE-ASSESS

We’ll look at your movement again to get a sense of what has changed and where there is room for  improvement.

 

SELF CARE

I will show you ways to take care of yourself and support improvements made during treatment. I try and keep advice fairly simple and functional so it is easy for you to use day to day.
