Andrew is trained in Australian mainstream Physiotherapy (G.D. Maitland), Osteopathic, Nordic-Orthopaedic, and Mulligan’s Concept methods of mobilisation, traction and manipulation of the spine and peripheral joints. He has MLMR (minimum lever – mid range) very safe and comfortable techniques of manipulation.
Andrew has long had a keen interest in learning, both new, and alternative physical therapies, that work. He is trained in and uses: Therapeutic Massage, Myofacial Release, Acupuncture (including Chinese massage, cupping and spooning). He uses and sometimes integrates Nordic Orthopedic, Osteopathic Manipulation (MLMR -HVLA) and Muscle Energy mobilisation, and Osteopathic Cranio-Sacral balancing.
We pay particular attention to checking for and treatment of Adverse Neural Tension. Andrew uses Janda principles of assessment and treatment of muscle imbalance when designing individualised exercise programs. These exercise programs usually have a big emphasis on posture during exercise, and ultimately in the improvement of posture long term. Exercise can often be enhanced by visual, tactile, and at times electronic biofeedback. Andrew has given relief to many sufferers of long and short term Vertigo using both the Epley Manouver and other proceedures.
A big influence on his outlook for many years has been Sahaja Yoga meditation, and Yuan-Chi Tai-Chi-Chuan, both of which Andrew now also teaches. Information about courses and classes can be found clicking on links on the main page.
