A Bodymaster Method Practitioner understands and treats the whole body as a complex integrated unit, where one dysfunction can set off a series of compensations which often trigger pain and dysfunction elsewhere. It is a unique combination of different therapy techniques designed to remove pain and restore mobility whilst working in harmony with the complexities of the human body.
As a Practitioner I aim to work out the cause of the pain rather than just treating the presenting symptoms; this may involve using therapy techniques from a variety of manual therapy disciplines. Ultimately, I place emphasis on advising the client on how to self-manage their condition; through re-education of movement patterns to improve posture and appropriate strengthening or stretching exercises.
