    Or go slower from where you are now, if you have the time...Scotland is beautiful

    Wherever your feet are right now, this is usually 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. Maybe then they need rehabilitation or other methods to promote their health.

    Starting at the base of your physical body, the feet, this webpage is firstly dedicated to holistic physiotherapy and physical rehabilitation available in the Scottish Highlands by a qualified health professional with the background in science, but also to other work on the feet and body through natural therapies and various health promotion workshops to assist your 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. Health promotion has always been one of Barbara's keen interests.

    Recent insights and trends through the COVID-19 pandemic and its enforced time of change has made it even more obvious that health professionals should assess a client's need in a holistic way. It is vital to adopt new ways how to deliver the 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 active rehabilitation without the need for travel or other risks. Fast intervention can be important in avoiding dependency of pain medication. Accessing help and resources has always been a challenge for the people living in the Scottish Highlands, but maybe also let them trust in self-help.

    Barbara has responded like many other health professionals to this need of support by offering telehealth appointments, which can be conducted to assess each individual holistically by a detailed telephone or video-link consultation. This can happen equally for Inverness, but also throughout the wider Highlands and further afield. She is currently also considering teaching some workshops and assessing ergonomic issues remotely.

    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 rehabilitation service for people living in remoter areas or with difficulties travelling to appointments.

    In many ancient cultures, and now also in our Western world with increasing awareness for holistic health our feet are seen as a mirror for our health, strength and soul. Therefore many complementary treatment therapies have evolved working with someone's feet. Not just holistic health professionals, but also main stream healthcare knows how important the health of our feet is for our wellbeing.

    And many of us have already noticed during the past months in lockdown, 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. The hour of outdoor exercise, even just as a simple walking practice, is Holistic Healthcare at its best, and currently Inverness and the Highlands are a blessed place for your feet to be. And we have all realised that promoting health seems easier than treating disease.
