How We Work

For our clients who are hypermobile:

Dive deeper than just muscle with hypermobility management. There’s a world beyond just stabilising joints, and we’re here to guide you through it! Uncover More

Building muscle is an art, requiring the perfect balance of weight and technique. But for the hypermobile, this dance can sometimes be a tightrope walk, teetering between strength and potential injury.

While many methods offer a burst of power, they often lack the deep-rooted stability you truly need. Imagine having the thrust of a rocket but launching it from a canoe; impressive force, but missing a steadfast foundation.

The NHS has spotlighted the significance of muscle strength and fitness for joint protection (1). Yet, there’s more to the story. Enter proprioception and cortical maps: the brain’s masterful tools for joint positioning and body command. Cutting-edge research underscores the critical role of proprioception in anchoring hypermobile joints (2). And let’s not forget the magic of closed kinetic chain exercises, proven to dial down pain and amplify knee proprioception, enhancing life’s quality for those with hypermobility (3).

So, when you embark on this journey with us, expect a symphony of techniques. We harmonise cortical joint representation, precision-targeted proprioceptive drills, strength cultivation, and joint mastery, prepping you to anticipate and gracefully handle life’s dynamic forces.

For our clients who have chronic pain:

Recognising chronic pain as a complex interplay of biological, psychological, and social factors, we engage with these dimensions through a supportive approach. Incorporating tailored exercise programmes, educational sessions, and counselling (when needed) to assist you in navigating your chronic pain journey. Uncover More

While many see pain as a mere physical sensation, we recognise it as a narrative that intertwines with emotions, beliefs, and daily interactions. The Biopsychosocial approach, or as we refer to it, your ‘BPS bubbles’ is a testament to this understanding, where we consider the intricate balance of biological, psychological, and social influences that shape your pain story.

Guided by the NHS and leading research, we champion the transformative power of talking therapies. Counselling (4) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) (5) are not mere conversations; they are therapeutic dialogues designed to explore the roots of your pain, offering coping strategies and fostering resilience. But our commitment to your well-being doesn’t end there. We amplify our approach with pain education, ensuring you’re equipped with knowledge, understanding, and tools to navigate the challenges of chronic pain (6).

So, when you embark on this journey with us, it’s not just about alleviating pain; it’s about empowerment. From deep therapeutic conversations to enlightening pain education sessions, we’re here to guide you, support you, and help you reclaim control over your pain narrative.

BPS Bubbles

Where do you even start when it comes to wellness?

Most people overlook one of the most important factors in their journey: Biopsychosocial factors

Our free ebook is designed to help you understand why BPS bubbles are crucial. We’ll take you through each of the three bubbles – biological, psychological, and social – and show you how each one impacts you in many areas.

If you’ve tried various treatments and they haven’t worked for you, it’s likely that your BPS bubbles weren’t considered. By understanding your own unique BPS bubbles, you’ll be better equipped to find the right approach for you.
