Other modalities I’m certified and utilize in my practice.

Fascial Fitness®

image14

Fascia is a multidirectional connective tissue made partially of collagenous fibres which envelopes the body hence supports and gives us our shape. It plays an important role in health, wellbeing and mobility as it transforms mechanical forces throughout the body, communicates to our nervous system  and is a sensory organ. 

Active Fascial Release™

AFR combines elements of motor control theory with a neuro-myo-fascial approach to identify, treat and finally re-educate the client’s movement patterns. With hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues this method addresses the body as a whole to create a variety of therapeutic effects.

Ballet Coaching

image18

I work with student ballet dancers as  well as professional and semi-professional ballet dancers to help them with their classical ballet technique, using my knowledge on the biomechanics of the human body. I educate them about how their joints moves and allow them to experience the application to specific ballet techniques that they want to work on.

Neuro-Movement

image19

Our bodies are made out of sensors that have an amazing ability to absorb environmental information all around us. This information travels through our nervous system to the brain, where the information is prioritized, decisions are made and communicated back to the body’s mechanics. So, what happens when there are gaps in these sensory systems and the communication channels are not working efficiently? It can interfere with the bodies ability to react, focus, coordinate, balance and move efficiently. The dominant sensory systems (visual, vestibular and proprioception) work together to help the body move well. Neuro-movement will assess for gaps, apply tools and strategies to strengthen the three sensory input systems and improve your movement.
