What seems to be the problem?
The solution is closer to you than you might think. The experiences and habits that we develop early in life are never completely forgotten. Thankfully for most of us, we’re encouraged to move and experiment through unstructured play - tissues are elastic and problems are rare. So how do we develop problems?
Our body craves movement in order to function optimally, however often these are clouded by our experiences such as the perception of pain, inflexibility and weakness. Subtle breakdowns from repetitive actions, old injuries and poor posture are just some of the factors that contribute to these experiences.
How can I help? I’m able to identify these problems, where they’re occurring and more importantly, guide you through a process of building better connectedness using a variety of techniques to identify, isolate and facilitate rapid change.forward
My fascination with movement comes from a lifetime of sports and activities. I've dedicated many hours of my life to sports, ranging from gymnastics to football, cycling to crossfit. My goal has always been to always keep moving.
In my early 20s I suffered a number of injuries that took me away from the field. But my imposed rest allowed me to focus on my studies in osteopathy. As a result, I was able to put my injuries down to imbalances and a lack of body awareness.
Lately, I have been on a quest to explore movement and physical health through stretch and body awareness, delicious and nutritious food and community engagement - the idea behind Welwood.back forward
I use my skills gained in Osteopathy to complement my innate desire to help people, wherever a person is on their journey to their optimal wellbeing.
I commonly use manual interventions, both direct and indirect, such as fascial release techniques, massage and joint mobilisation in my treatment sessions to improve alignment and reduce pain and stiffness. These techniques are useful adjuncts to other more lasting practises such as rehabilitation and strength exercises, loaded flexibility work, balance and stability exercises, breath work and meditation.
I like to see things through, however whether these changes are lasting or not depends entirely on the individual: their readiness to accept change and work to skill mastery through regular practise.back forward
An initial consultation is necessary before the proper course of treatment can be established. This initial consultation typically follows a three step process:
I’ll note your symptoms and problem areas, as well as recording a detailed medical history.
I’ll assess your movement habits by guiding you through a range of exercises, and determine the cause of your problem or injury.
I’ll establish a treatment course to alleviate the problem at hand, and get your body moving the way it was designed to do.
