A-J’s professional qualifications and education

Extra training in osteopathic modalities such as craniosacral therapy, visceral therapy, and neural mobilisation gave me more physical tools and  Yoga Therapy and some training in psychotherapy (Hakomi, sports psychology, gestalt family systems)  provided me with tools to address psychosocial factors contributing to pain.

 The feeling of well-being I got from it has led me to further study completing over 600 hours of Yoga teacher training and a further 500 hours of Yoga Therapy training.
