In the words of The Greatest Showman, 'THIS IS ME!'
Mummy, Wife, Sea Swimming Fanatic, Curious Explorer of the Rabbit Warren of the Nervous System, Movement Facilitator, Passionate Advocator of Breathing, Neuromuscular Manual and Movement Therapist.
I passionately believe that everyone has the innate ability to get themselves out of pain and move better. They just sometimes need some help, guidance and someone to walk with on their journey.
After qualifying with a Btec Level 5 in Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy from the esteemed North London School of Sports Massage, I was drawn into a lifetime of fascination and learning of the inner secrets of the human body. Shortly after qualifying, I was introduced to the importance of the nervous system in assessing and treating the body, and fell down the neuro rabbit hole to a world of curious exploration and continual learning development.
What is it that I do? Some people call it magic, others witchcraft!
My approach is a blend of the the innovative tools and techniques which my journey has taken me, into a brain based, muscle testing and movement approach to helping people MOVE BEYOND PAIN

A Brain Based Approach
The Brain & Nervous System
Welcome to the BRAIN.
Central computer, chief decision maker and protector of life. Everything that happens in the body comes down to the brain.
Using its information highway, the NERVOUS, information gets delivered to the brain, it decides the best course of action, and sends out the relevant repsonses to the body's systems and structures.
Keeping your Container Safe
As the BRAIN'S main role is SURVIVAL, if it perceives a THREAT to the system from any of the incoming information, it recruits all its resources to keeping you ALIVE - clever, eh? But, in doing so, it will forego performance and function, until the threat has passed.
PAIN is an OUTPUT from the BRAIN, created in response to a PERCEIVED THREAT from the incoming INPUTS.
When we desenstize this threat to the sytem, the body can get back to PEFORMING and FUNCTIONING well.
If you are in PAIN, what INTERNAL and EXTERNAL INFORMATION is coming into your BRAIN, that is it interperting as a threat?
Our Treatment Philosophy
At My Bodyworks, we treat and work with our clients with this philosophy in mind.
Keeping your brain in a state of NON THREAT is important to treating and progressing you.
Assessing where your nervous system is at before, during and after treatment is as important as the treatement itself. By being aware of the many inputs that your brain is responding to, we can test out your systems to see which inputs are prioirty for treatment in helping your body return, safely, to pain free movment, optimal function and performance.
REMOVE THREAT, IMPROVE PERFORMANCE
