Following an initial consultation to understand the cause of your symptoms, Robyn will work with you to agree a treatment plan with the aim of restoring your body to a state of balance using a variety of techniques including touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage. These are aimed at helping your body’s own healing mechanisms by increasing the mobility of joints, relieving muscle tension and enhancing the blood and nerve supply to the body. Robyn may also provide advice on wellness and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
