Freedom from Pain
the mind connection
Is pain affecting your daily life?
Has it been with you for more than three months? Have your medical & therapy teams been unable to explain your symptoms or help you any further?
Would you like to work towards full recovery?
Recover with SIRPA
The pioneering, cognitive recovery process developed by SIRPA (Stress Illness Recovery Practitioners Association) can help you relieve your persistent pain and rediscover your spirit again. Experience relief from conditions such as chronic back, neck, shoulder, arm pain, sciatica, persistent pain in the hips, knees, feet, Fibromyalgia or "RSI".
Update your knowledge
All pain is real, but science has now discovered that established beliefs, unhelpful behavioural habits and emotional trauma & turmoil from our past and present life experiences contribute to nerve pathways which can create &/or maintain pain - even in the absence of anything being physically wrong with the part of you that hurts.
Develop new skills
By identifying and addressing the factors specific to you, with a variety of cognitive strategies and lifestyle changes, you can reprogram your nerve pathways and resolve your symptoms. Journaling, self-care strategies, meditation & mindfulness are just a few of the life-changing techniques that you can learn and regularly practise at home to help you gain relief from persistent & recurring pain.
YOU can recover
No matter how severe your symptoms or how long you've been suffering, you can achieve relief.
To compliment the SIRPA approach, we also offer additional therapies such as PSYCH-K and Jikiden Reiki, which may be recommended to help you achieve success.
the body connection
Have you had an injury?
Do you have aches, pains &/or tension?
Are you finding it difficult to work, rest or play?
Are you struggling to return to full activity?
Would you like to improve your performance?
Physiotherapy with Be Activated is an empowering, holistic whole-body assessment & treatment approach that can measurably & swiftly improve strength & flexibility, relieving stress, tension & pain, promoting healing from injury, and enhancing energy, ease of movement & performance.
Restore & revive
We discover how your body's patterns of muscle activity may be contributing to your problem or injury, and then work to sequentially stimulate & re-balance your body back towards its more optimal pain-free, strong, flexible and resilient state.
Working from the core outwards, we use simple, brief massage techniques on specific areas to release tension and re-engage unused muscle potential. As we carefully measure and feel the immediate changes in strength &/or flexibility of each muscle group treated, we often see dramatic improvements. Be Activated's results can be quite mind blowing, and it is suitable for all levels of function, fitness, sport and age.
Fascia is your web-like 3D biological fabric that intertwines, surrounds & supports every structure in your body. Connecting through muscles in "trains" from head to toe, fascia is ever adapting & may also benefit from the gentle sustained techniques of myofascial release to regain its natural, fluid & flexible state.
Individualized programmes are created to learn and practise at home, including your Be Activated regime before activity, training or sport.
Experience the Change!
