Traditionally physiotherapy has incorporated hands on techniques, exercises and educational programs to assist people with pain, illness and those wanting to develop their physical abilities. But our bodies are connected to a mind flushed with thoughts and emotions. You may have noticed that what you are thinking and feeling influences your health and wellbeing. Scientific research is helping us to understand this body-mind connection and to provide guidance in treatment and management strategies that address the whole person. These findings are changing the face of physiotherapy.
Mindful Movement Physiotherapy aims to address health in its complexity underpinned by the belief that pain, illness and loss is part of life, your life, but how you respond to these challenges will influence how they effect you - how much pain you experience, your participation in life and how healthy you are.
You can take an active role in your own health and wellbeing and we can provide strategies, supported with meditation and mindful movement CDs, to adapt into your life on a regular basis to create lasting change. We offer individual appointments that incorporate mindfulness, Mindful Movement classes and the highly acclaimed and comprehensively researched Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course.
