    My journey into the healing arts began when I personally had to seek help over 18 years ago for a chronicoveruse injury of my forearm, which was a consequence of playing too much guitar.

    I finally came across a myotherapist and was impressed at the immediate response to treatment over the first 3 to 4 sessions. What also impressed me was the variety of approaches and modalities (or if you like the “tools of the trade”) to address my issue.

    This inspired me to leave my psychology and counselling degree and to enter the field of physical therapies to aid others who have experienced difficult chronic conditions. At first I thought I was going to be all about treating other musicians (who all suffer some type of chronic overuse injury to some degree) but of course my passion then encompassed anyone with chronic physical issues.

    My approach encompasses the whole-person and I’m very interested in the mind / body connection; many a physical condition is not solely just “physical. I’m very interested in how the client breathes, how they’re sleeping, the quality of their diet, and also offer relaxation and meditation tracks for those who are undergoing stress. All of these things mentioned can impact or be the underlying cause of the physical presentation. And then of course there are all the physical modalities I’ll use which include the use of ‘dry’ needling, myofascial cupping, etc.

    I’m very passionate about the new paradigm in health which considers the fascia and quoting Langevin (2006) who describes the recent findings of the interplay of the fascia as the “link that Western medicine has been looking for to tie all the former separate working systems into one holistic scheme”. By working with this fascial paradigm I feel clients can begin to make progress with long-standing chronic and difficult musculoskeletal issues.

    Here’s a short fascinating clip on fascia (3:10mins)

    And also an amazing documentary on fascia (38:00mins)
