The holistic approach

 

Understand the interrelationship of joints, muscles and fascia and how these all need to work in harmony and balance to avoid problems. Now also add the power of thought, belief and intention and the effect this will have on the body, positively and negatively.

 

  • discover how your mind can affect your body
  • explore how emotions contribute to the physical discomforts patients may be experiencing
  • learn to observe for emotional postures and movements 
  • listen to and guide your patient without crossing boundaries into counselling

 

Create a positive way forward for mental and physical well being.
