I am a Certified Clinical Somatic Educator, McTimoney Chiropractor, Neuromuscular Reeducation practitioner, and Doula. I spent many years attending a wide range of professional training courses as a Chiropractor including Pilates, Kinesiology, Craniosacral therapy, and many more searching for that missing link.
When I came to the HSEC Level 1 training in 2013, I fell in love with Somatics from day one. For me it filled in all the blanks; it was that missing link I had been looking for. Having been a McTimoney Chiropractor since 2004, I knew that some of my clients just didn't "get better" – they would improve for a short while, but then return to me with the same problems and the same imbalances in the body. I would treat them again and they would happily go away pain-free... until the next time. Through Clinical Hanna Somatics I learned why my clients' pain always returned, and how I could help them.
For me, Somatics has not only helped me to unravel my own aches and pains, but has also helped me to alleviate the stress that I didn't know I was carrying around. I went from being a tightly coiled spring to being able to step back and view life differently. Many people come to Somatics for physical pain and restricted movement, but actually gain so much more from the profound affect it has on emotional health. It really is a hidden gem!
I have a busy and diverse clinic offering one-on-one clinical sessions and group classes. I work with a wide range of clients from Triathletes to children, the elderly, and pregnant women. Being able to educate people about movement and helping them to alleviate the restrictions in their body, and ultimately their life, is a great pleasure.
