I am blind. I see this as a distinct advantage (no pun intended). To me people are a blank canvas, I cannot see them and therefore I have no pre-conceived ideas of them or their issue/s. They tell me what the problem is and very often I find this to be very different to what their tissues are telling me, because of this I am then able to offer the treatment that best suits them and their body at that time.
I have a great desire to be better at what I do through knowledge, technique, interacting with people and promoting what I think is important.
I am very interested in self-care. For me there are 5 pillars of health. Movement, nutrition, environment, sleep and thinking.
Putting resources into all these areas results in well-being, and to me this is the very definition of self-care. Working with my clients to encourage this, identifying first the area that is lacking and then adding these things you will energise your whole being. I truly love what I do, and it makes me very happy to be using Osteopathy to help facilitate peoples’ quest for well-being.
'Happiness isn’t a condition, it is a decision' – Patti Lawson
'What surprises me most is “Man”, because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he doesn’t enjoy the present; The result being he doesn’t live in the present or the future; He lives as if he’s never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived' - Dalai Lama
