Wherever your living feet are right now, this is where you are - and this is the start of your unique journey.
Your feet may give you trouble or joy, but they almost always will take you to new places, and allow you to move in your unique direction through life, to adventures, to work, to other people, often silently promoting your self-development, personal growth and change. They link us with our planet and gravity, and they can dance..
Often, we just become aware of our feet when they hurt or are injured, as we usually take them for granted.
Starting at the base of your physical body, the feet, this webpage is firstly dedicated to holistic physiotherapy available in Inverness by a qualified health professional with the background in science, but also to other work on the feet and body through therapies and workshops to promote self-development, self-help and self- direction through times of challenge and change. Hopefully reaching and enriching your soul.
Through her own path in life, and also her long standing experience in the field of physiotherapy, Barbara has formed her unique approach of Holistic Physiotherapy - available in Inverness, but also in the Highland village of Carrbridge. Her approach is often hands-on but she will usually try to guide you eventually to self-help and self-develoment, to prepare you for your own times of change and success.
Recent insights and trends through the COVID-19 pandemic has made it even more obvious that health professionals should assess a client's need in a holistic way. It is vital to learn new tricks especially during lock-down on the delivery of usually hands-on clinical care effectively through other ways. Luckily technology can help here. And patients in need can access advice, assessment and sound treatment protocols including effective self-help without the need for travel or other risks. Fast intervention can be important in avoiding dependency of pain medication.
These times of change seem to point us all in the direction of supporting each other, but also in supporting our own self-development.
New ways may thus lead to an improved service for people living in remoter areas or with difficulties travelling to appointments.
And many of us have already noticed, that using our feet more can be an efficient way of boosting not just our physical health, but also staying grounded and feeling the benefit emotionally and mentally. Holistic Health at its best, professional or not, and Inverness and the Highlands right now are a blessed place for your feet to be.
