I graduated as a chartered physiotherapist from Queen Margaret College, Edinburgh in 1990, and worked in a variety of clinical settings from hospitals to a GP surgery and from occupational health to private practices. At weekends, I was team physiotherapist to Manchester Storm ice-hockey team, Broughton Park Rugby Club and the British Judo girls cadet squad.
However, my traditional medical model of how to treat pain was turned upside down when I took a course in craniosacral therapy, something which, at the time, I knew very little about. I took this course primarily in an attempt to resolve my own frustrating hip pain which was not only hindering my golf, which I played at the time, but was also not responding to conventional physiotherapy (read extended version here). This course challenged and changed my perception of how to treat pain and led to my integration of craniosacral therapy into my treatment approach. Central to this approach is treating the underlying cause of the symptoms.
I am excitedly embracing this latest chapter in my therapeutic work, which continues to evolve.
