What is Movement Therapy?
Movement therapy is a combination of techniques, which teaches people how to move better in order to reduce pain, rehab injury and allow you to lead an active, pain free life. It is a whole body approach to re-aligning the body as opposed to spot treating areas of concern.
- Improve your daily movement habits reducing wear and tear on the body
- Learn how to perform functional movements properly to move better through life
- Improve your form and technique in your sport or gym workouts
- Understand how your gait pattern may be contributing to your aches and pains and how to address this
- Enhance whole body health, increase circulation and metabolism and decrease pain and inflammation
What to expect in a session?
Your first session will involve a full biomechanical assessment of your body and gait analysis if appropriate. We will then work together to improve your alignment, walking pattern and most frequent daily movements. I will show you how to sit, stand, walk and move well – all the things you take for granted but may be causing or contributing to your pain or symptoms.
I will then prescribe a set of corrective exercises specific to your needs, which will be sent to you in video format and updated after each session. Ideally you should set aside 15 minutes 4-5 times a week to do the exercises, but many of them can be incorporated into your every day life.
