Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy analyses how we 'occupy' our time, be it work, leisure, sport, self care or productivity. It addresses a persons' functional performance, activity and the environment.

David integrates his experience as a Senior Occupational Therapist and moving and handling keyworker to the assessment and intervention of his Movement clients.

David has a First Class Bachelor of Sciences degree with honours in Occupational Therapy. He presented his dissertation on the benefits of Karate at the COT Annual Conference.

Workplace

Many of us spend a lot of time in the workplace, engaging in repetitious movement and/or in sedentary positions. This can lead to aches which if not resolved may lead to pain. Usually this is accompanied by increased tension, sometimes headaches, loss of sleep and a general loss of wellbeing.

David can help alleviate this through advice, movement and bodywork.

David can also come into the workplace to help a team or work-force, thereby increasing wellbeing in the workplace and reducing sick leave.

Sport, workouts, leisure, the arts ...

My first experience of Bodywork was when I had ten sessions of structural integration. I was amazed at the difference in myself, my posture, it was great making me feel freer, more assertive and more confident and as a martial artist I moved more easily, was fitter, sharper, more flexible ... I felt great!

Whether you do sports, football, golf, running, swimming, bodybuilding, yoga, dance, amateur dramatics, singing, musical instruments, anything really, Movement can help reduce the risk of injury, recover from injury and importantly help you enjoy improved performance through ease of movement and efficiency so you can experience more feelings of being 'in the zone'.


Activities of Daily Living

When we are well we should be able to go about our daily activities without trouble.

However for many of us life has multiple opportunities for tension. Sitting at computers, looking at mobile phones, I-pads, computers, televisions in static positions, sitting in traffic queues, trying to get the household choirs done, carrying heavy bags in one hand and children in the other, rushing through the workday whilst stress makes us tense.

Feeling tense can make us feel tired and far from optimal, thankfully by reversing this and relieving this tension we can feel fresher, more energised and able to cope.
