Mobility Issues

Mobility Issues

Stiffness and immobility can result from a number of things, such as being in one position for prolonged periods of time, following periods of immobility due to illness or injury, or as a result of incidents such as slips, falls or car accidents.  Often, people simply put their mobility problems down to the inevitable effects of their age.  Whatever the cause, immobility and stiffness can virtually always be improved by a combination of myofascial release and massage therapy. 

If your problems are long-term, you might also be interested in the Structural Bodywork: 3 series.  This is a cutting-edge treatment plan based on new knowledge of the fascial and myofascial ‘anatomy of connection’ throughout the body, known as Anatomy Trains.  Steve is a certified Anatomy Trains Structural Bodywork 3-series practitioner, and so can offer this effective programme to clients whose problems are long-standing or recurrent.

Session 2: Thorax and Arms

  • Postural and breathing assessment and feedback from initial treatment
  • The ribcage, breathing organs and the diaphragm
