The Mobile Osteo’s methodology is formed from the summation of 25 years of professional experience in the health & fitness industry, studying, observing and questioning what I’ve seen and been taught.
I’ve been combining soft tissue mobilisation with foam rollers and therapy massage balls with stretching and strengthening since 2004, after studying with the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).
There have been many other qualifications, courses and workshops over a 25-year journey, and I am always keen to learn and looking for answers. The final destination, for now at least, has been completing studying to become an osteopath.
The study of osteopathy has meant integrating its principles into my past knowledge and experiences.
The principles of osteopathy are…
The body is considered a whole – Each part affects the other parts, and the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Structure governs function – If the body’s structure is compromised (for example, through injury or repetitive strain), it is very likely to harm its function.
The body heals itself – Everyone can heal; this can be stimulated and supported by removing restrictive barriers. Once the barriers are removed, the body can usually resolve all but the most severe conditions.
The ‘Rule of the Artery’ is supreme – For healing to occur, there must be a good blood supply to a troubled area with the necessary immune cells and nutrients.
