Activation therapy is a holistic approach designed to restore your body’s optimal function by massaging congestion points within the muscles and releasing blockages. Muscle testing is used to assess any weakness. The techniques are applied and the muscles are retested. The results in strength and flexibility are dramatic and easily measurable and are accompanied by improved muscle balance, energy and resilience and usually a complete resolution of pain.
I graduated as a physiotherapist in 1996 and went on to complete a Masters degree in Advanced Physiotherapy at UCL in 2006. I worked in NHS hospitals in England before working in Australia in a mixture of private clinics, hospitals and the 2000 Olympic Games. My most extensive work has been in private clinics in central London for the last 20 years as well as in my home village in Brookmans Park, Hertfordshire.
I specialise in Douglas Heel's Activation Therapy and use this as my main tool to treat myself, my family and my clients.
Following my first activation in 2014, I felt flow and connection through my whole body. I felt very different - in a very good way! I felt grounded, stronger, lighter, more flexible, clearer, sharper and more productive. As well as these benefits, my right shoulder dysfunction and post-birth issues completely resolved.
When I compete in triathlons and half-marathons, I have a full activation prior to a race. I am stronger, more powerful and my movements are smoother and my focus is sharp.
I have 3 sons and my eldest son has been diagnosed with a syndrome which includes musculoskeletal weakness. He was 5 years old when I started treating him with activations. He was falling over hundreds of times a month because of weakness resulting from medical trauma, low tone and hypermobility. He would grind his teeth at night which occurs in highly stressed individuals. Within a few weeks of therapy, his teeth grinding fully resolved, he stopped falling over and he has continued to go from strength to strength, including a dramatic improvement in his overall health, energy levels and in his academic performance at school.
I have treated hundreds of clients with this technique ever since and have enjoyed seeing them strengthen, their pains eased and positive changes in their lives, general health and sporting performance.
