Core Alignment Bodywork is designed to help people who have pain.
Current scientific research tells us that pain is generated by the nervous system as a response to an experience of 'threat' as perceived by a person's brain. Acute pain, as a natural, protective mechanism, may arise as a result of tissue damage sustained by way of trauma, or during an accident, but actual tissue injury is not always the primary cause. Stress, and the elevated muscular tension and changes in 'body chemistry' that often go hand in hand with the experience of challenging life experiences may be just as significant a factor in both the generation and ongoing presence of pain. Added to this, long-term, chronic pain problems may be compounded by an understandable degree of fear-based avoidance of movement, and also by both psychological factors and social circumstances.
By way of gentle, hands-on bodywork (which is performed on a massage table with the client fully clothed), breathing practices, postural exploration, movement awareness exercises and confidence-building, in combination with education about the mechanisms behind body pain, Core Alignment Bodywork can help you to return as quickly as possible to a comfortable and active life.
