Having committed myself to a career of progressive learning from some of the best academic and real world practitioners across both clinical practice and elite sport, I am excited to turn my focus to building my own practice in Ipswich.  I endeavor to deliver evidence informed, clinically led treatments that set you up for success. I'm a firm believer that what happens off the table will always play a greater roll in reaching your goals than anything that happens on it and that nothing is ever straight forward, which is why I approach treatment from the perspective of "support the process" rather than "fix the issue".

Helping to support you along your journey back to a healthy and meaningful lifestyle by providing tailored hands-on care, advice and support.  

Even if you are already receiving treatment and advice elsewhere, we can work in with your existing team of professionals to provide remedial treatment that will support the rehabilitation process.

PERFORMANCE THERAPY

Are you training hard and working towards something big? Or simply enjoy pushing your limits as part of your general lifestyle?

Having worked with elite athletes as well as many competitive and social weekend warriors to keep them moving, feeling, training and competing at their peak, I have the skills and insights to help you stay on top of your aches and pains that come with pushing your body to the limits. 

If you need help getting back in the box seat or just need a nudge in the right direction after a solid session then I've got you covered.

Pre-Event (Preparation)

Iron out those little niggles and go into your event feeling fresh, ready and confident!

(Don't wait until the last minute to get on top of the little things on your mind throughout training)

Post-Event  (Recovery)

Overcome the discomfort sooner so you can get back to regular training and moving well. 

Performance Therapy

(Long Term Athletic Development)

Tailoring treatment to compliment your training and competition schedule to keep you performing optimally, reduce time off and allow you to give your all. 

Consistency over time is key to long term development - offsetting stress, soreness and tension allows you to train and compete with minimal disruption. 

PREGNANCY 

PRE NATAL & POSTPARTUM

Growing and raising little people is one of the greatest gifts that life has to offer. 

But it is also extremely demanding and tiring.

The rate of change the human body experience throughout pregnancy is far greater than any gym program could ever deliver. 

Feeding, caring, cleaning and chasing around after little humans has you lifting, squatting and lunging more than ever before. 

So if you are looking to destress, loosen up and feel somewhat human to help put your best version forwards every day. Book  in!

REFRESH & RECHARGE

Some times everything becomes a bit too much - including getting on top of your aches and pains.  Stress is a big driver for pain and discomfort and it's actually beneficial to put the breaks on your usual approach to care and approach things in a gentle way. 

So if you want to sit on the fence (or jump it completely) and get a bit of both worlds then this is the option for you.

MY APPROACH

 

Relief, Rehabilitation and long term support for athletic development all operate on continuums - knowing not only what to do and when but understanding the why ensure that you treatment not only offers relief, but has you ready to take the next step to reach your goals.

Understanding

“Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.” Margaret Mead

 

Goals - Short term Vs Long term - What direction are you trying to go?

Assistance - I'm an advocate for everybody having their own support team of professionals that suits their needs. Working in with your existing network allows us to operate from the same page, reduce overlap, focus efforts on outcome and avoid adding confusion.  

Background History - The body adapts to its environment overtime, so getting a general picture of your general health and experiences to date will help us understand your body better and, in most instances, identify existing strengths that can be leveraged to your advantage. 

Demands - Failing to take life demands (stress, time, workload, budget, resources, priorities) into account when designing a treatment plan can set you up for failure as they have a big influence on pain and the body's ability to adapt.

 

Strategic Planning 

"Strategy is not the consequence of planning, but the opposite: its starting point." — Henry Mintzberg

Movement Potential Screen - A combination of foundational movements, muscle and joint evaluation to identify any barriers to efficient movement relevant to your needs. 

Contributing factors - Weigh up all of the findings and your own circumstances and weigh up what changes and support are most likely to support you best. 

Timing - Understanding development, recovery and treatment effect timelines will alter what approach is ideally placed to get the best result with minimal drawback. Every approach has it's positives as well as it's drawbacks - avoiding the backfire effect to allow consistent progress makes a big difference over time. 

Tactical Intervention

"Strategy requires thought, tactics require observation." — Max Euwe

Short Vs Long term - Balancing the short term effects of symptom management with the need to address the underlying factors that need to change over time to mitigate the recurrence of symptoms. 

Reductionist vs holistic - Although understanding the multiple systems and interplay of the human body is very complex. Long term results come from balancing the needs of each system and keeping the big picture in mind and avoid becoming overly fixated on individual components. 

Technique selection -  No technique is better than another, but each one engages with the body slightly differently. Depending on what we want to influence and where you are with your situation can alter how we approach the problem. It is common for 2 clients with identical symptoms to be treated differently due to their own circumstances.
