I came to my career through a fascination with the human body and how it worked. I first trained in Holistic massage and, interested in how I could affect health in a far more fundamental way, enrolled to train on a 5 year BSc Hons degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine in 1999. In 2004, this qualified me to practice Acupuncture and its supplementary therapies and to prescribe Chinese herbal medicine. I went on to study remedial bodywork as so many of my clients required a depth of skills to deal effectively with their pain and musculoskeletal complaints. I enjoy treating this, but found it the hardest to address long-term. I trained in Sports/Remedial massage and Tuina, but found that it wasn’t whole-bodyfocused and the stroke often felt wasteful. I then did some training in Myofascial Bodywork and this felt ‘righter’. I also had a SI series and I found it to be really effective for my own discomforts and was also amazed at it’s effects on my emotions, energy and visceral balance.
I like the whole-body approach/ non-separation of the mind and body in Structural Integration: it feels similar to Chinese Medicine in that way. It is another elegant therapy whose theories and practice are fundamentally based on the relationship between energy and health.
