In her treatments she combines mostly “hands on” treatments including manual therapy, myofascial release, acupuncture, dry needling, therapeutic taping, Pilates, Hypopressive therapy, neurodynamics and an individualised exercise program to continue the treatment actively at home.
She blends techniques from all her qualifications to provide a treatment tailored to the individual, often combining remedial techniques with structural corrections as required and finishing most treatments with relaxation techniques. Her treatments combine the relaxation and remedial effects of massage wonderfully.
She has also completed various Craniosacral Postgraduate courses including working with babies and children.
