Barbara’s background before working in health was in teaching physical education in schools, teaching adult fitness classes in her own fitness business and farming in the South-West.
Barbara has a Diploma in Remedial Massage Therapies and over many years has studied numerous additional courses and techniques. Included are Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue work, Trigger Point Therapy, Bowen Therapy, Myopractic and Non-manipulative Mobilising Massage. These and other techniques offer a ‘tool-kit’ enabling individualised treatment programs to help patients with a wide range of pain conditions. She aims at reducing pain and tension by releasing muscles in spasm and by addressing tendon, ligament and fascia complaints; the result is improved structure and function.
