I treat using exclusively myofascial release techniques as I find this is the best approach for treating the symptoms associated with chronic pain.
Clients come to see me with a range of chronic pain conditions including chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS), fibromyalgia, headaches & migraines, myofascial pain syndrome, scars from accidents and injuries, neck & back pain, RSI, TMJ & jaw pain, endometriosis, digestive issues. I also give all of my clients self-help myofascial release exercises to continue the benefits of their treatment at home.
When I first consulted Amanda I was suffering from RSI that was preventing me from doing my job as a writer. My right wrist, arm, shoulder and back had seized up and I was unable to type. The pain had not been alleviated by several months of physio, wearing a wrist brace, applying ice packs and taking large quantities of prescribed Ibuprofen. My first session with Amanda brought instant relief and reduction of pain; over 6 subsequent sessions I experienced complete elimination of the problem.
Amanda has proven that I can depend on her – a recent skiing whiplash injury saw me walk into Amanda’s clinic unable to hold my head up, and walk out an hour later, pain-free, with my head held high. Amanda is professional, knowledgeable and always willing to take time to explain what has happened, how she can help, and how I can help myself.
have done weekly massage therapy, twice weekly chiropractic, yoga and Pilates which all helped [my sciatica] some, but nothing has worked as well as Myofascial Release. After doing the exercises which reduce pain I can also feel a difference in my posture which I believe is at the core of the issue. This technique is working better for me than anything else I have tried.
