HEALTHCARE IS

SELF CARE

Hi, I am Joyce!

 

      I am a holistic healthcare practitioner, with Pilates, Yoga, Yoga Therapeutics and Ayurveda Wellness Counselling as my background.

      It is exciting for me to bring these different modalities into everyone's lives not just for the physical benefits but also for the emotional and mental support that they bring to people's health.

      While Pilates facilitates our daily functional movement, improves our posture and builds our core strength, I use Yoga to guide the physical practice to a deeper level. Using props to support the body in positions where the survival-stress response is switched off, the central nervous system is regulated and balanced so that any muscular tension that is held in the body can be released. When the breath permeates these new open spaces, energy can then flow more naturally throughout the body. With Ayurveda, I focus on self care routines for cleansing and nourishment. Ayurveda awakens a deep desire for self care through enlightened self knowledge and self love. My inspiration comes from having the desire to understand the changes that our body goes through and its relationship with Nature. Additionally, I turn to Dr Cliff Inkles who is based in New York for Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) and Somato Respiratory Intergration (SRI) to create more energetic bandwidth in my body to cope with my busy schedule.

      In my own private time, I indulge in some photography, read a little, run a little, swim a little, trek in the Himalayan mountains whenever I get the chance and scuba dive as often as I can!

      Educating clients with self care tools is important in healthcare. It is more complete to address both the physical symptoms of the person and at the same time provide tools to help them make the changes that serve them and to let go of patterns that no longer do. Awareness is key to reinventing the body and for the preservation of health. As a healthcare practitioner I enjoy blending together a cocktail of remedies personalised to each individual so that the care given is person-specific. Once we set up the conditions to feel connected with ourselves, with who we are as individuals, once we establish wholeness and oneness, healing then takes place in many forms- healing all that separates and disconnects us from others and from ourselves.
