Dance & Movement Specialist Over 25 years as dance, movement and therapy specialist. Originally trained in dance in the U.S going on to manage one of the top New York dance studios. As a 10 dance finalist (Ballroom & Latin) 3 years running, gained top teacher award for training students with disabilities to competition level. However in 2003 I was told I would be wheelchair bound within five years due to a serious back problem. It was then that I discovered the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® along with my knowledge and previous training was able to have complete recovery. With both this profound practical and emotional experience, I feel I am perhaps uniquely placed to help others looking for pain relief or rehabilitation. Using massage, movement and the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® as my building blocks I draw on a wide range of techniques from Orthopaedic massage to Somatic movement, Myofascial Release to Structural Integration as a means to bring balance and equilibrium into under-pressure physiques. My keenest guiding principle is to assist clients to tap into their bodies own intelligence and ultimately help themselves. With an academic background that also embraces Business and Personal Coaching, I enable individuals, businesses and organizations to overcome the real and imagined blocks to the realisation of full potential by preventing and treating stress and physical problems, modifying personal and collective perceptions and removing limiting beliefs.
