Wendy uses her perceptive visual and palpative assessment to integrate a range of treatment methods to assist the body to regain as optimal as possible function and to provide you with individualized self-care options. Patients are encouraged and empowered to manage and build their health and function by better understanding and connecting with their body, whatever their path.
Drawing on her varied background, Wendy focuses on treating your body as a whole system to not only relieve symptoms of pain and dysfunction but identify and treat the underlying cause, preventing and mitigating development of future issues where possible.
Working with the connective and soft tissues we can affect not only the musculature but also the bony and visceral alignment as well, with additional effects to the neurological, vascular and lymphatic systems. Muscle spasms and tightness decrease, tissue feels invigorated and clearing of metabolites and congestion from affected areas usually occurs. Improved alignment is usually accompanied by better active and passive range of movement, co-ordination and function.
Osteopathic techniques provide a gentle option for cases of traumatic injury, severe pain and perinatal joint and soft-tissue management. Myofascial work allows the therapist to assist the body to restructure connective tissue restrictions that can cause any myriad of problems, from headache to low back pain, knee, hip and arm pain that will not respond fully to ‘traditional’ massage techniques that focus more on muscular and circulatory effects, which have their place. Assessment and palpation guide what technique is used in what location, to create an individualized treatment.
RMT care can be an important part of your self-care program, helping you identify and treat soft-tissue imbalances, learning what areas can benefit from strengthening or stretching, targeting your self-care to your own body’s direct needs or assisting you to find your centre again and to manage stress.
