problem solving for pain and Behaviour Change:
reset. Over time our bodies start to hold a lot of tension and develop restricted movements. In order to move beyond the cycle of stubborn aches and pains, we need to free the body up to movement again. Enter Fascial Stretch Therapy - a gentle, pain free way to guide the body back to how it really wants to move. Because we don’t force anything to change, we gently coax and allow the body to choose to let go of tension, the amazing feeling you have after a treatment sticks with you instead of tightening back up next time you sit down.
move. Rather than fixing a problem outright, the Reset is better viewed as creating a window of opportunity for the body to learn how to move like a pro. By shaking the dust off of the connections between your brain and your muscles, we can upload a new software system for your body - one without the pain bug.
change. Chances are, the actual long term fix has something to do with your habits - movement habits and lifestyle habits. This is the missing link after so many amazing therapies and the reason why if we don't change our habits, things don't change. By working together to improve your sleep, nutritional habits and how your body responds to stress, we can create the day to day foundation for a life you've always wanted to live.
