Front to Back Iliopsoas Trigger Point Release

In up to 95% of muscle dysfucntion, the psoas and iliacus muscle complex (iliopsoas) is the "hidden culprit", a term coined by physiotherapist Dr. A. Jefferis. I have received endorsement to provide what A.J calls a Front to Back treatment, which focuses on releasing trigger points in the psoas and iliacus - muscles in the front of the body - and trigger points in muscles in the back of the body, hence the name "Front to Back." This unique approach recognises the remarkable relationship the iliopsoas has with associated structures in the body. Restores optimum function and freedom. I highly recommend this treatment if you suffer from chronic back, neck and shoulder pain and tension.

Reiki     

 

A healing therapy re-discovered and developed in Japan in 1922 by Buddhist Mikao Usui. It is based on the premise that unseen universal energy can be channeled through touch. In the West this has been known as "laying on of hands". It is a gentle and effective therapy that can be used in conjunction with and support all other medical and therapeutic techniques to promote relaxation, healing, and recovery. 

Kinesiology

 

Kinesiology is a natural approach to healing that gently addresses interference to communication between the body's systems by using muscle testing to question the quality of energy flowing through the body's meridian* system. By observing the muscles' response to specific muscle tests, the kinesiologist can monitor the communication between the meridians and the muscles they energise. Through muscle testing, patterns of stress in the body are revealed, and suitable corrections to support the body and naturally bring about a state of health can be applied. 

*What is a meridian?

A meridian is a channel or pathway for energy (or: 'Qi', 'Ki', or 'Prana) to flow through. If you've ever had acupuncture, (a system of natural healing that has been used in China for centuries), you'll find that the areas the practitioner inserts the needles are at specific points that have been mapped out and align with these energy channels - meridians - in the body. These channels supply energy to each organ and system in the body.     

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), otherwise known as "Tapping"

Tapping is gaining world-wide recognition as a simple yet powerful tool for self-empowerment. 

By focusing on a stressful issue and, at the same time, tapping gently on specific acupressure points on the body, one is able to effectively release emotional stress, and relieve much physical tension, allowing free-flow of energy and improved thinking.

Tapping is being successfully applied to address physical and emotional trauma, pain, phobias, insomnia, addiction, weight loss, fear, anxiety, anger, helping to improve concentration and learning for children and adults, improving personal and workplace relationships, improving fitness levels... the benefits of tapping are truly remarkable.

I have facilitated people with tapping for years, observing the positive transformations that can be experienced with the tapping process, working with issues such as pain and numbness in the body, unrecognised past trauma, panic, phobias, insomnia, grief, carpal tunnel syndrome, unresolved anger and resentment, deep-seated fears, negative self-worth, and much more. I am amazed to witness a process by which people free themselves of these painful experiences and feel better physically, emotional and mentally. 

Can be incorporated into a massage or kinesiology session.

RESET (Rafferty Energy System of Easing the Temporomandibular joint)

RESET is a non-invasive, pain-free method of re-balancing the muscles of the jaw.

Find relief from chronic neck and shoulder tension, headaches, migraines, grinding teeth, TMJ syndrome, hip issues, insomnia, and low energy levels. Improve digestion, immune function, and concentration.  

While lying on your back and resting comfortably, the practitioner places their hands gently over specific muscles of the jaw, head and neck, holding these muscles for a few minutes at a time. This allows the muscles to balance to their optimum tone, relieving much stress and pressure on joints, allowing improved blood flow to the muscles and clearing chronic and acute pain and tension. 

 

Balancing the jaw can have a profound healing effect on other systems in the body, due to the jaw's relationship with the pathways of the central nervous system. Due to past traumas or daily stress in our busy lives, our nervous systems can often be on high alert, meaning that the "fight/flight" (sympathetic nervous system) survival response is constantly active, directing energy away from important functions such as digestion and immunity. Addressing stress by balancing the jaw is an effective way to relax the body's nervous system, and so, improve the vitality of functions throughout the body.     

 

Two sessions of 1 hour duration are required to completely address the TMJ with the RESET method. Sessions can be spaced as little as a day apart, or as long as a couple of weeks apart.

Balance Nutrition & Toxicity

A treatment that uses muscle testing to monitor stress and toxicity in the body due to the presence of heavy metals. Accumulation of heavy metals may interfere with the body's ability to absorb essential nutrients, resulting numerous health and hydration issues. This treatment tests for efficient utilisation of magnesium, calcium, zinc, and copper, and with the application of a gentle jaw balancing technique that effectively re-balances the nervous system, allows long-held stress to dissipate and clear a pathway for detoxification and the absorption of essential nutrients.

Can be incorporated into a massage or kinesiology session
