Physiotherapist, NZRP, Dip Phty, M Phty
Registered Educational Kinesiologist/ Brain Gym® Instructor
I have been a Physiotherapist for 40 years and in the last 25 years have pursued a passion for, and training in wholistic mind and body modalities alongside physiotherapy.
The focus of my work is supporting health and wellness by integrating Physiotherapy with Educational Kinesiology, Developmental Kinesiology, Craniosacral therapy and Ortho-Bionomy.
Educational Kinesiology/Brain Gym®: I love seeing the subtle and often extraordinary shifts towards mind and body integration that happen when applying Educational and Developmental Kinesiology. These tools are useful for all ages; from early child development to any learning, behavioural, movement, sporting or creative challenge in the whole of life.
Rhythmic Movement Training (RMTi) uses movement and various reflex integration techniques to gently support optimal developmental and neural integration. I enjoy working 1-1 with children (with their Mums and/or Dads), teenagers, and adults throughout the life span to support increasing wellness.
CranioSacral therapy uses very gentle cranial and body assessment and treatment strategies.
Ortho-Bionomy. I am a Practitioner in training in this gentle approach developed by Arthur Pauls (1929-1997), Osteopath and Martial Arts Master. The techniques work into directions of ease, and away from pain and resistance to restore balance, alignment and well-being.
Physiotherapy: I have worked in many contexts during my professional career from inpatient, surgical, medical and rehabilitation to outpatient, community and school/educational environments and Private Practice
My current Practice includes assessment, postural, biomechanical, myofascial, neuromuscular and joint therapies and exercise prescription alongside the modalities described above.
