Soft Tissue Therapy integrates three essential clinical elements; assessment, treatment and rehabilitation. I focus on a range of elements to deliver bespoke solutions to meet and exceed your needs employing the following building blocks. Ultimately I am all about empowerment. I want you to develop so much knowledge that you thrive in your own environment without reliance on me.
Remedial / Sports Massage Therapy
The benefits of massage are numerous and in many ways can depend on the needs of the client at the time. It is a ‘holistic’ therapy which works on many levels by influencing several systems of the body. Massage therapy is now widely used and has spread into many areas of healthcare and I use it extensively to combat muscular aches and pains, when assessing joints and as a correctional treatment. I am Level 5 qualified.
I work with professional athletes through to grass roots sports men and women, young athletes and children building bespoke plans that meet and exceed the needs of the athlete. I am all about empowerment and my aim is always to increase any learning about the body that the athlete may have and give them tools that enable them to be more self sufficient.
I also treat non sporting injuries, aches and pains and help people rid themselves of pain and discomfort caused by work or life in general.
Ever marvelled at the ability and beauty in animal movement? Well human movement performance can be enhanced in many ways. Effective movement involves anatomical factors, neuromuscular skills, physiological capacities, and psychological/cognitive abilities among others such as nutrition and hydration.
People need help in improving human movement and this help requires knowledge of “why” and “how” the human body moves and so it follows that biomechanics is important for solving human movement problems.
Injury prevention and treatment is another primary area where biomechanics can and should be applied. Sports medicine professionals have traditionally studied injury data to try to determine the potential causes of disease or injury but I have felt for a long time that biomechanical research of an individual is always time well spent, especially when the individual has a tendency to get injured. It can be a powerful ally when preventing and treating injury. For example, individual specific biomechanics studies can help prevent injuries by providing information on the mechanical loading during movement which can go a long way to explaining why the body is breaking down during activity.
Posture is about so much more than looking confident and poised. Standing or sitting in the right position makes sure our bodies function properly. Poor posture can be caused by many things that effect our daily lives. Having good posture will benefit you in so many ways just as poor posture can put you at risk of debilitation and poor performance.
Gait refers to the pattern of movement of your lower limbs. Essentially I am talking about your foot fall. I use my knowledge to help athletes run more efficiently and also to identify posture-related or movement-related problems in people with injuries.
I offer a client involved injury rehabilitation service to help you regain your full sporting or day-to-day activity levels following a sports injury, at work injury or when recovering from surgery. My processes are all about empowerment. I want you to learn about yourself.
Strength & Conditioning
When I work with people on their strength and conditioning I am focusing on the extent to which muscles can exert force by contracting against resistance and the bodies ability to work efficiently and/or with lessened stress while performing a chosen activity. There are lots of facets to actually enabling muscle to do this which can be achieved by challenging the body in different ways: Agility, balance, flexibility, localised muscle endurance, cardiovascular endurance, strength endurance and coordination for example and very often I will spend time looking at movement patterns from the chosen sport and then the athlete to determine where any inefficiencies lie and any improvements can be made. Very often in sport we just practice without actually looking at what we are practising - I see that as wasted effort if improvements can be made.
Solid nutrition is vital to a healthy lifestyle and consistent athletic performance. Personally I am not interested in diets, I am interested in habits - good ones.
Diets have rules and that in itself make them unsustainable and restrictive. When you then fall off your diet you may feel and be told that you've failed - you are a failure. Fall off and fail enough times and you'll stop doing something. For me this shows that the thing you are doing is unsustainable and does not fit in with your life or training habits, it is the approach that’s wrong, not you. You are not a failure. Alternatively you keep at it and reach your target, but then what? Do you keep buying the powders and replacement systems for life? Believe me you won’t - it is also unsustainable.
What is the solution? It is actually very simple - in order to lose any weight, you simply need to create a calorie deficit. If you find you are tired all the time or not seeing improvement in your performance times it may be that your nutritional intake is not helping you as it should and maybe you aren’t eating enough. It isn’t just about eating less - overall it is about improving your nutritional intake day in, day out, with real food - not powders and potions. You may benefit from supplements but not substitutes.
I believe that having someone suitably qualified to deal with injuries, whether during games, meets, tournaments or at training is and always has been a necessity. I can provide qualified pitch-side support on both an ad-hoc and long term arrangement.
I incorporate stretching into my treatments and generally clients leave with homework to aid their goals and/or recovery. I develop programmes that incorporate dynamic, active, isometric and static techniques.
I am a Level 4 Qualified Kinesiology Taping Association International Specialist and employ Kinesio taping in a number of ways from aiding recovery from muscle trauma through to correcting mechanical imbalances.
Core Club was born out of my belief and fascination with an "Experiment of One" approach to my work. Every person I meet is different, and they need to be treated with that in mind. Yes we have the same muscles but we are all different heights and weights which sees us load muscle and stack joints in unique ways. A one solution fits all approach to anything just won't work if we are to see group and individual growth.
Core Club has grown big into something very different to anything we are seeing in the local marketplace. I personally think traditional gyms and memberships have run their course. Core Club gives participants time to work on posture, form, breathing and capability without being put under pressure to hit reps and focus on volume. They also receive homework after every session.
