Movement without pain

Back Pain

You may have been told that joints need mobilising, or that weak muscles need strengthening or your posture needs to improve. However, all of theses options fail to consider why your nervous system has locked down a particular joint or inhibited certain muscles.

Running Injuries

Why has your nervous system decided that this is the best current solution for your body? 


By understanding why this is the best current solution we can then begin assessing how to facilitate change,  to restore optimum function to those areas. 

Long Term Pain

So whether its your ankle, knees, hips or neck that cause you problems, by understanding why its happening we can work together to allow you to move out of pain.

Finding your missing link

"l came to see you with a niggling calf injury however due to your thoroughness of approach you identified something much more important . Which was the daily pain I was suffering as a result of a neck accident. The benefits of your approach and corrective exercises has transformed my pain issues and made real improvements to my lifestyle. Many thanks for your professional services.”
