Practice:
I see a wide range of adults who usually come with some kind of physical pain or restricted movement. I donít work with children but am particularly interested in working with the elderly, to help them maintain or improve their quality of life into advancing years. I have been in bodywork-practice for 20+ years, and practice from the Meridian Centre in South Birmingham

I work with adults and have a special interest in "Baby Boomers" and working with people to help them regain & retain their flexibility & independence well into their later years. I provide classes and one-to-one sessions, doing both Awareness Through Movement and Functional Integration
 
Biography:
Massage and movement specialist with continuing interest in the mind/body connection.
 
My work-focus has always been interested in the connection between mind & body, and throughout the years from first qualifying in 1996, have continued to add to my skills. I qualified in Tuina (Chinese Massage) in the UK and then spent a month at a Chinese teaching hospital in Beijing (to learn how Tuina is used in China). I also gained diplomas in Qi Gong (I teach classes most Thursdays), and in hypnotherapy and NLP as part of extensive training.
 
Thorough my knowledge and experience of muscular system function – together with the added skills and knowledge of the nervous and skeletal systems gained during my Feldenkrais training – I look forward to helping clients obtain & maintain more flexibility in both mind & body, especially in their later years.
 
As clients are becoming more aware of how they move, and the possibilities within the patterns and sequences of the Method, they are more interested in helping themselves than "being fixed" by a third party.
