In my 25+ years as a therapist, coach and movement teacher, it has always been important to me to continually keep learning and growing. I have just completed a two week intensive on the central nervous system and [...]

Part 2 – The power of words

"What we say is what we become". I am being very careful with my words at present in emails and social media. You may not get the response you want but I also want to make you think and take responsibility for the self.  George Bernard Shaw said, "People are always blaming their circumstances for what [...]

Rehab for cancer- Part 2

Why quick fixes do not work – There is no substitute for doing the work

Quick fixes don't work in the body. Most of us don't want to hear this, but; there really are no quick fixes or short cuts to optimal health and movement  (or to anything else worthwhile, for that matter). The road to bettering ourselves is a long continous one that requires time, commitment and self discipline. I always [...]

You’ll never look good on the outside till you look good on the inside

Did you know that our outside or exterior reflects our inside or interior? Everything is organ and gut health. If you have poor quality connective tissue no amount of exercise including pilates and yoga or physio is going to repair you optimally.
