My journey as a bodywork therapist began 30 years ago, as I accumulated multiple injuries in my body and along with these injuries, I developed immune system dysfunctions, and autonomic nervous system dysfunctions/imbalances as well a nerve damage. Instead of succumbing to a life of illness and pain,and loss of mobility, I decided to look at "why" this had happened and "how" could I fix this. It was never really an option for me to stay in the state I found myself in. So with a passion to heal I embarked on this new journey of healing and repairing my fragile body. Making this decision opened up a whole new world for me. Physically I pursued the medical field, which has given me the in depth knowledge to work with the physical body and it biomechanics and its workings, the autonomic nervous system, limbic system, endocrine system, lymphatic system and its connection with illness and disease. Rehabilitating the physical body after injury, illness and trauma, strengthening the core centre of the body, which in turn generates power and strength throughout the body.
Emotionally I looked at the impact trauma, illness and injury would have on the cells, endocrine system, lymphatic system, nervous system, musculoskeletal system, cranio sacral system and energetic system. Also I looked at what was my part to play in the break down of my health & wellbeing.
Nutritionally I looked at my dietary practices, the quality of the food I ate, and the structure of the food and its thermal nature.
And last but by no means least I looked at my spirit self, I looked at my true essence and my lifes purpose, by opening up this new world, I connected with a part of myself that had been waiting patiently for me to aknowledge its existence, which in turn began both my spiritual training and my clinical training, which has lead me where I am today.
I hold a diploma of remedial therapies, which includes deep tissue, myofascial therapies, trigger point therapy, MET(type of joint manipulation), manual lymphatic drainage.
