With all of my treatment approaches, the goal is to supply your central nervous system with new information that facilitates change, in a holistic way.
It is important to first seek guidance from your GP for chronic and/or complex issues if your issue has not been diagnosed or investigated.
Treatment Approaches for Chronic Pain in Dorset
This works with the connective tissue in our body called fascia.
Fascia is a 3D soft tissue matrix which supports, protects, and infuses every other tissue and the organs of the body.
When slow gentle pressure is applied to the body using fascial release techniques, this 3D matrix responds by releasing and reorganising itself, throughout the body.
Addressing the fascial system and supplying the central nervous system with new information (awareness) facilitates change at the deepest level.
Particularly beneficial for stress or tension related pain.
Lifestyle factors such as poor posture and sitting at a desk can result in upper back, neck and shoulder pain.
In fact, stress of any kind will cause the body to tighten up and this can eventually manifest in the body as pain, illness or dis-ease.
Massage also helps to support disability and neurological conditions, e.g. Parkinson’s, Cerebral Palsy and Fibromyalgia.
Scar Tissue Therapy
A light and gentle technique. The aim to re-integrate scar tissue into the 3D soft tissue matrix of the body.
This technique is called ScarWork. It reverse-engineers the damaged fascia of the scar – restoring function to muscles, nerves, and internal organs.
Natural and surgical scars of any age respond immediately followed by a short period of rapid healing and continued improvement.
Neuro Health Coaching
Neuro Health Coaching helps you explore and address the emotional factors involved in chronic pain.
Where red flags have been ruled out, persistent pain can be attributed to the brain’s protective response to a perceived danger; the ‘danger’ could be high or chronically high stress levels and / or repressed/unresolved emotions.
Once you attend to the perceived danger, the protective response (pain) is no longer required.
Disability and Neurological Conditions
A neurological condition is a problem associated with the central nervous system, namely the brain and spinal cord.
Natasha offers support with symptoms related to disability and neurological conditions. Examples include Spinal injury, MS, Parkinson’s, Cerebral Palsy and Fibromyalgia.
Natasha also works with symptoms related to fibromyalgia which is characterised by widespread chronic pain and appears to result from processes in the central nervous system.
