I always feel lucky for being able to spend as much time with my clients as I need to. And I believe that's important.
Because after all that I’ve learned about the body, biomechanics, and everything physical, there is one guiding principle that I appreciate more than anything else… if we feel safe, cared for and in control, we do better. That means in critical moments such as injury or disease, or generally throughout our lives, being treated as an individual is what matters. Being listened to. Being taken seriously. And having someone take the time to understand what is going on, is what matters.
And when we are treated this way, we feel less pain, less fatigue, less sickness. Our immune system works with us instead of against us. Our bodies ease off on emergency defences and can focus on repair and growth.
Being given confidence and hope can mean more to someone's future and healing than the physical treatments. It might sound 'new age'. But our mind is more responsible for our health than we still give it credit for.
