My Approach to PhysiotherapyThanks to my extensive Physiotherapy, Pilates, Sports Science, Gyrotonic® and Gyrokinesis® experience, I am able to offer a unique approach to rehabilitative and preventative Physiotherapy. It is based on integrating traditional Physiotherapy with Pilates, Gyrotonic® & Gyrokinesis® to optimise posture & movement, with particular interest in spinal complaints, sport injuries and osteoporosis.
I first assess your individual needs using a Physiotherapy assessment format. I then customise your treatment plan to suit your individual needs using my integrated therapeutic approach, choosing the most appropriate option for you. Whether it be Gyrotonic® or Pilates, the exercises I use are mostly modified from their original forms and tailored to fit your specific therapeutic needs. These exercises are reinforced by my physiotherapeutic hands-on skills. So you get the best of both worlds.
I also use my Counselling and Psychotherapy skills to deepen the physiotherapeutic process when I suspect that physical symptoms have underlying emotional causes. For example, I may work with you on how you hold yourself when you're anxious, if this anxiety pattern causes neck pain and headaches.
My integrated therapeutic approach is designed to facilitate the transition from therapy to exercise for health and well-being and assist you in fulfilling your movement potential.
