What to expect on your first visit?

We will have a short chat to discuss the reason for your visit. I will then carry out an assessment of posture and the range of movement before beginning any treatment.

Treatment will be carried out on a couch, standing or sitting in a chair. The treatment can be performed over loose light clothes, but it may be benefical for some moves to be made directly on the skin. At times during and after treatment you will be asked to perform a range of movements in order to lock in the work taken on by your body.

The Technique involves the application of light pressure point holds, flicks and slides at particular points and in sequinces that enables gentle physical release of muscle groups. The client is always assessed before, during and after treatment. Changes due to the treatment are often instantaneous, with the client feeling a positive improvement in their presenting condition.
