Summer Newsletter August 2023


I am now qualified as an Integrated Myofascial Therapist 

Here is a link to the register:-

200 hours of study, 4 days of intensive in person training, 4 case studies and 1 dissertation and lots of practice I am pleased to announce I have gained lots of experience and new techniques to help you with reducing the symptoms of pain that occurs as a result of injury, trauma related, accidents, surgery or wear and tear. Or simple everyday stress! 

A recent testimony following surgery

“Trust is a big issue for me, I need not have worried, Deborah is respectful, sensitive, gentle, kind and very knowledgable in her practice.

After major surgery last year I was still struggling to walk any distance without paining using a wheel chair at times. In May 2023 I plucked up the courage to see Deborah and I haven’t looked back. After my first session the relief was amazing, the following week my walking had improved and I managed a forest walk, since then I have been walking daily, swimming and I know there is work to be done due to muscle wastage but I feel strong and confident in my walking. I have every confidence in Deborah’s practice and methods. Thank you. I refer her to all my friends as pocket rocket.” Mrs P.

Fascia a bodywide system

Advantages for you of working through the body wide fascial system  

Myofascial therapy is slower and sustained. Tightness and tension in the body following accidents, injury, surgery, emotional trauma or everyday stress has the potential to tell the brain stem via the nervous system that it has to work very hard to keep us safe, we often breathe more shallowly which can increase co2 levels resulting in an acidic blood PH and a denser fascial matrix. We may use sugar or alcohol or medication to escape and feel safe.The result can be symptoms like:-

  • Fatigue
  • Muscle ache
  • Shortness of breath
  • Inability to concentrate 
  • Insomnia 
  • Anxiety
  • Dizziness
  • Heart palpitations 
  • Pain, inflammation and eventually disease

Fascia is 10 times more sensitive than muscle tissue with approx 250 million nerve endings therefore the treatment is slower, sustained and works with the brain to “feel safe”, allows breathing patterns to be restored increasing oxygen, being heard and receiving therapeutic touch and can result in a reduction of symptoms, fascia becomes free.

Beautiful free fascial fibres

The superficial fascial layers are densely populated  with pain sensitive nerve endings which means the pressure during the treatment is quite light but sustained to allow the brain to respond to touch, it takes approximately 1 minute for the touch to be received, and responded to in the tissues hence Less is More is the approach. It is like melting an ice cube with your fingers, it is a two way interaction as you feedback what you feel and notice which helps with the treatment by supporting the body to change and brain to “perceive its new condition”.

And the bonus after having some sessions you can do self care at home to support the amazing work your  body has done. It is easy and effective. I can teach you fascial fitness no need to go to the gym!

Testimony from back pain relief

“I went to see Deborah after suffering months of back pain which no other professional had been able to relieve. After just one session, my pain eased and after a series of sessions I am now pain free. Deborah takes a fully holistic approach to pain relief, assessing what is actually the root of the pain before providing treatment.” Mrs S.
