  1. Ongoing learning

            Bad habits learned over a lifetime don’t go away overnight and some people can benefit  by ongoing WP learning. There are several ways to do this.

  • Ongoing ATM (Awareness Through Movement) Lessons. Small classes in house or in Crows Nest with other people. (classes 6 only)
  • Individual Sessions where Dr Jones helps you identify your personal holding patterns and helps find better ways to move–using knowledge of neuroplasticity

  

       5.Workplace assessment.

Dr Jones can come and observe you working (this can be done with or   without patient being involved).  She will identify where you limit good movement in your body and then create a unique audio lesson for you on CD or MP3 (memory stick) to address this and you can do the lesson as many times as you like at home
