How we Work

At Physio Therapy Yoga, we prioritize listening to your body. By carefully feeling your tissues, we gain valuable insights into your condition.

To provide the best possible care, we start by conducting a comprehensive assessment. This includes gathering information about your current and past pain, medical history, stressors, sleep habits, and other factors that may contribute to muscular tension and inflammation.

We also evaluate your posture and movement patterns, as well as your joint health and muscular balance. Additionally, we pay special attention to your nervous system, recognizing that pain is often a result of nerve involvement.

Our approach at Physio Therapy Yoga is grounded in scientific and evidence-based methods, customized to address your specific needs. With over 25 years of experience in treating complex and stubborn conditions, A-J and the team at Physio Therapy Yoga are skilled in determining the root cause of your problem and selecting the most effective treatment techniques.

What is Integrative Therapy?

It is where you are treated as a whole, the sum total of all your systems working together. You are an integrated whole of all your parts, every system is influenced by the other systems or body parts.

You are treated by assessing the whole of you, from head to toe. We assess other factors like lifestyle, thought processes, emotions, the environment in which you live and work, past injuries and treatments…all of it!

Modern medicine is a reductionist way of treating the body, often relying on medications or other invasive techniques.

We use complementary holistic Yoga therapies alongside mainstream western medical knowledge and research with physiotherapy.

Who do we help?

People who have not found long-lasting relief for their pain. They may get short-lived relief, but it comes back. 

They must be ready for change. They are motivated to work together with us to get better.

You may be restricted from doing the things you love, for example going on long walks. It is important to understand, pain is not always where the problem is. You are looking for an experienced physio who can work out the cause of your problem? You want the choice of a range of therapies, including Physio and Yoga, to help you live a full and active life.

What are some trends you are seeing that aren’t useful to your clients?

There’s been a lot of attention given to “core strength” in recent years. Many people do not understand what this is properly. Many clients come to me having been given strengthening exercises that aren’t helping and may even be making it worse. Many are given medication or the option for surgery, before trying non-invasive conservative treatments that have scientific evidence to back their efficacy.
