Louisa is trained in gentle osteopathic techniques particularly useful for treating back, neck and whiplash problems. She is qualified to use Acupuncture within the scope of physiotherapy.
She is also a Rosen Method Bodywork Practitioner having completed 6 years of training including a 2.5 year internship.
The Rosen Method is established in 13 schools worldwide including the USA and Sweden, where Louisa first encountered the work. Rosen Method is hands-on touch therapy that addresses deeply held muscle tension: Unexplained aches, pains and tiredness can be the body’s attempt to manage underlying difficult or unacknowledged emotions. This work helps bring us into deeper awareness of these tensions and with a gentle, supportive touch and dialogue from the Rosen Practitioner, allows us to open up more fully into our potential and release long standing habitual tension.Click here to read more about the Rosen Method work
