Founder of Ixchel Therapies I have 14 years experience of massage and bodywork. Since 2007 I have been running a busy Clinic alongside my local GP surgery in Coldean, Brighton. I also have a wide range of clients coming from outside the area.
When working with Clinical Massage I specialise in Repetitive Strain Syndromes and Sports Massage for chronic conditions of the lower back, neck, shoulder, leg etc. including for example Slipped Disc and Carpel Tunnel. I also use amongst other techniques, Systematic Kinesiology to muscle test my clients and identify imbalances or food and chemical intolerances causing general health to be out of sorts.
If there has been no specific injury, most health challenges or pain conditions are due to tension, either in muscles or body systems. This can build up slowly, but can manifest into debilitating and painful body experiences later on. I have created Ixchel Therapies so that I can help people to restore and prevent these challenges.
I like to build a close relationship with my clients and adapt all treatments specifically for each session. Every 'body' is different and although a pathology may be the same in two different clients, the reason they have it may be completely different. With all chronic pain conditions there are often many elements contributing to them. Physical, Postural, Nutritional, Emotional and environmental. Therefore, it is important to work together to address the aspects of life that may be contributing to any health challenge or pain condition that is presenting itself.
I am especially interested in undiagnosed pain conditions that despite endless tests, scans and investigative procedures, the doctors are unable to find a clear diagnosis. Very often the underlying issue is trauma in the body. With the myofascial release and cranial sacral techniques that I use, I like to work with clients to help them to release body memories that are holding onto this pain. Resulting in a freer and profound sense of wellbeing.
