A whole body approach
for the treatment and prevention of pain, injury and impaired movement
and to help restore structural balance and ease in the body.
Online and in-person in South-East London (SE3)
During Covid-19 I follow stringent health and safety guidelines when working face-to-face, including:
Advanced Myofascial Techniques
Advanced Myofascial Techniques are a unique blend of tools based on years of experience and recent research. Deep, direct touch and subtle, receptive touch is interwoven with somatic bodywork and used to address complaints such as movement dysfunctions and pain (e.g. headaches, joint pain, sciatica, etc.). This work is extremely useful in profound ways: by increasing options for movement and by refining awareness so that the body can be felt in new and enhanced ways. As a result, pain, athletic performance and well-being, all improve. The emphasises of this work centers on the human interaction between practitioner and client so the WHOLE person is seen, heard and helped.
Structural Integration is a bodywork treatment of fascia and deep tissue combined with movement. It is designed to restore structural balance, ease and fluidity of movement, and a feeling of “comfortably fitting in your own skin”.
You can come for one-off sessions, but the best, most permanent and progressive results are achieved with a series of sessions. On each visit we address a different part of the body.
Ideally, there is a break of one to two weeks between sessions for you to integrate the treatments: breaking old habits and exploring new movements and postural patterns instead. There is the option to get homework exercises that will support your process.
Active Fascial Release
Active Fascial Release is a new approach to bodywork: you actively participate in your own treatment by being upright and moving while I work your soft tissues to identify, treat and re-educate whole body movement patterns.
Active Fascial Release gives you the opportunity to be engaged in your own treatment, helping you understand and thereby enhance the treatment outcome and ultimately educate yourself about the wonderful interrelationships through your whole body.
Can I help you?
I have been working with people to improve their movement, health and well being and provide support during rehabilitation for over 15 years and have had success treating:
- Back pain
- Shoulder and neck problems
- Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
- Headaches and migraines
- Jaw tension and TMJ disorders
- Plantar fasciitis
- Joint stiffness
- Surgery and injury scars
- General tension and strains
- Freedom from persistent aches and pains
- Injury prevention and speedier injury recovery
- Relief from stress and tension
- Freedom of movement
- Improved alignment and balance
- Increased body awareness
- Relaxation and rejuvenation
- Improved breathing and performance
A thorough understanding of whole body posture and movement patterns guides me in the techniques I use to meet YOUR needs.
While I work on your fascia you will be asked to participate through movements of your body. Most of the work is completed on a treatment table, however with Active Fascial Release work you will be upright and moving as I work your soft tissues.
If movement training is called for we will identify and develop appropriate exercises together that help support the work from the session and which you can fit into your daily life.
Please choose clothing that leaves the back, legs, arms and other areas available for work but comfort is the primary consideration.
If you prefer, treatments can be done through clothes.
Movement re-education can be part of the session - wear comfortable clothes for that.
Homework exercises can be provided to help increase your awareness and any changes you are trying to achieve.→ Want to know more

I have wanted to tell you for ages that your advice to stop thinking of my leg/knee as a problem was the best advice I got during my marathon training. I continued with the exercise and took off the support bandages having talked to you. My knee continued to improve and is clearly much stronger.
You clearly have a great depth of knowledge and experience and are brilliant at explaining what I could do on my own to release the tension in my neck. Thank you!
