What We Offer

Marie Cartwright

Sports & Remedial Massage

Marie qualified in 2005 and has over 11 years experience in sports therapy. Her understanding of injuries – whether sporting or occupational – is pretty sharp as she has worked extensively with athletes from a variety of sports, including running, triathlon and football. She also has broad experience treating people from non-sporting backgrounds for back conditions or other postural issues.

 

Having been a competitive athlete who still races for her own pleasure, Marie can relate very well with frustration caused by injuries.  Never short of embracing a fresh challenge, Marie is currently studying for an MSc in Sports Psychology, which gives an extra edge to her existing skills.  True to her creative and active self, she has produced her own sporting challenge for 2016, really pushing her fitness to the limit by aiming to compete in 40 races this year as she turns 40.

 

A crucial part of Marie’s work is establishing the root cause and muscle groups affected by injuries, identifying imbalances, providing sports massage and assisting with rehabilitation and future injury prevention. Marie strongly believes that massage is a necessity, not a luxury and, as such, her technique often involves a tailored approach, producing an individual and personal program of treatment, which also sometimes include specific exercises and stretching techniques.

Richard Dickson

Pilates Movement Myofascial

Modern life, especially in the city, is fast paced and stressful. This environment can have negative physiological effects on the body from poor posture, movement habits and stress, opening it to injury. Restrictions and poor movement can be the root cause of chronic pain. A combination of Pilates, to re-learn efficient movement and re-align the body, together with manual, targeted myofascial release, will allow you to:

 

  • Explore and allow the body to find its equilibrium
  • Discover your potential to move with ease in a full range
  • Release into movement with Myofascial sessions
  • Overcome poor posture and habits contributing to pain
  • Rebalance the neural and motor systems

 

The Myofascial treatment is a gentle but effective method precisely identifying restrictions, then working with the body using a number of specialised techniques including specific joint work and visceral release. It can be used alone and can be very effective for many painful conditions including:

 

  • Shoulder & Neck Pain
  • Carpal Tunnel & RSI
  • TMJ & Jaw related pain
  • Scoliosis and postural issues
  • Injury & post operative recovery• Whiplash • Fibromyalgia

 

Richard has many years’ experience teaching Pilates training with renowned educators Helge Fisher and Kelly Kane, working from an anatomical, bio-mechanical and sensory approach. He has added to this with extensive study of  the myofascial connections of the body gaining manual therapy skills in Structural Integration, Myofascial Release and the deeper bodywork of the Barral Institute. He sees many clients with chronic issues and combines movement and manual therapy, working inventively and intuitively with your body.

 

Client comment ” .. thank you for the 1:1 class. I was very impressed with the way you analysed me, felt the tension and the way you taught. Wow!”

David Canevaro

Osteopathy and Rehabilitation Pilates

 

Your Osteopath will carry out a case history with an examination using a highly developed sense of touch called palpation, to identify any points of weakness or strain throughout the body. Osteopaths use touch, manipulation and occasionally acupuncture / dry needling to diagnose and treat problems. They all have a background in sports massage and may also incorporate these skills into their treatments. You will then be given a suitable treatment plan which will include rehabilitation exercises and advice.

 

David Canevaro has trained as a Pilates instructor with Polestar Pilates and the Australian Physiotherapy Pilates Institute. His approach is essentially a fusion between Osteopathy and Pilates. Pilates is a method of exercise to help develop your core strength, flexibility, body awareness, balance and postural alignment.

 

David Canevaro is registered with the General Osteopathic Council. Should you wish to claim through your private healthcare insurance, please check the terms with your provider first.

Liz Bussey

Craniosacral Therapy

 

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

It is a gentle hands-on therapy that supports the body’s natural goal to find optimal health and postural balance.

Cranial Sacral therapy was developed in the early 1900s from the findings of a US Osteopath, Dr William Sutherland. These findings show that, in health, all living tissue (muscles, bones, nerves, fluid) express a subtle rhythmic motion, which has been called Primary Respiration. The full and balanced expression of Primary Respiration is fundamental to good health. However, factors such as accidents, injuries, stresses, toxicity or emotional problems can affect Primary Respiration and therefore health.

A Cranial Sacral therapist is trained to listen to this rhythmic motion and identify areas of stress or strain in the body. They then, using Cranial Sacral skills, provide an opportunity for the body to recognise and release inertial patterns, invite restoration of Primary Respiration and therefore a healthier state of being.

Many conditions can respond well to Cranial Sacral treatment such as stress, anxiety, depressions, chronic fatigue, digestive disorders, headaches, hormonal disorders,insomnia, migraine, tinnitus, hyperactivity, dizziness, muscular pain and more!

During a session, usually, you will lie fully clothed on a treatment table and experience the light touch of the therapist’s hands. You may feel a deep relaxation and possibly become aware of heat, tingling, pulsations or other sensations.

Cranial Sacral Therapy is suitable for all ages.
