Who we are

Our interest in the body’s movement patterns started with our personal experience of competitive participation in dance and sports such as Rugby, Triathlon, Ironman, Marathon, Endurance Cycling and Swimming.

This experience, combined with current ‘hands on’ involvement in these sports at a high level, helps us understand how the body responds to the demands placed on it. To this we have added our specific training and qualifications.

The sum total of this is a solid expertise in biomechanics and a passion for applying a range of established and progressive techniques to get more long-lasting and complete solutions for your issues.

We have 3 practitioners with accredited qualifications in Osteopathy, Sports & Remedial Massage , as well as professional training in Medical Acupuncture, Gait Analysis and Anatomy in Motion

•Making sense of a situation prevents confusion.

•You then have the ability to absorb the information required to tackle the problem.

•All information we give is pertinent to you and your situation.

Dancers have tremendous mobility but also have incredible stability to support their movement.

Remember too much mobility reduces stability.
Conversely, too much stability reduces mobility.

Grow them both together and allow homeostasis to prevail.

Once the missing pattern is found, it then has to be up regulated using various movement arcs.

Once the movement is up regulated in the motor cortex, it operates subconsciously and full function is established.

The missing pattern.
This is what all rehab comes down too.

You’ll find out more very soon.

Feeling an injury reducing pain is a great feeling.

The relieve that some feel cannot be measured.

But returning to full function is the key to successful rehabilitation.

This will mean that homeostasis is optimised and what ever pursuits you chose can be done with fear.

Mobility and Stability are interrelated.
More of one reduces the other.
A decrease in motor synapse due to injury will cause a reduction in conscious control of muscles (#missingpattern)
Therefore reduced stability.

The same exercise movement executed in different ways can adapt your body in different ways.

Where the exercise makes you bigger, faster or stronger.

But, when the movement is executed for rehab you need to feel the movement so that motor units adapt to reinitiate missing patterns.

Don’t just do the movement, feel the movement. Maybe the Jedi had something after all.

Think of the movement in terms of a 3 dimensional sphere.

Mobility allows the body to move to the outside of the sphere.

Stability supports the structure around the sphere.

Flexibility provides instability.
Weakness needs better body awareness.
Mobility and stability are interrelated - once you have more of one than the other, you become unstable.
