Over the last year I have begun working closely with clients living in Geelong’s disability care system. I’ve found the treatment plans have been liberating for my clients, who are often living in frustrating and complicated situations and it’s been a learning experience about how treatment is not just about pain.
While the treatment is designed to help with debilitating pain or restricted physical movement, I’ve found my clients have experienced benefits beyond the pain I am treating. By easing the pain through Myotherapy and Bowen, my patients’ carers have told me how their charges are calmer in the days following treatment and sleep better.
An added bonus is that this has helped the patients to enjoy and look forward to their regular session with me!
It’s a reminder that treatment goes beyond the physical element and it’s a pleasure to help such a widely affected part of our community.
