Acupuncture has been used for centuries to treat a number of conditions and can be extremely beneficial in the treatment of musculoskeletal problems (problems effecting the muscle and joints and the specific systems that effect them.). Sarah is a qualified Acupuncturist and is a member of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP)
Kinesiology taping is believed to be useful in the reduction of painful musculoskeletal conditions and can be a useful tool in improving proprioception (body's awareness of itself) especially helpful when addressing postural changes when riding.
Massage, soft tissue mobilisation and muscle energy techniques
Massage and soft tissue mobilisations can be hugely beneficial in the management of injury and discomfort. It has also been shown to boost the immune system and can assist with reducing inflammation. Muscle energy techniques can be used to activate weaker muscle and "switch them on" during riding.
Sarah is an APPI (Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute) certified instructor and will be able to design a bespoke exercise programme to enhance your balance, flexibility and strength ensuring a balanced and centred seat.
