I help with neck and headaches, limb aches and pains, tension and strains in joints, muscles and other soft tissues.
After nearly 20 years in clinic (see About Lake) I have gained a broad ranging experience. I use joint articulation and various soft tissue techniques to restore the musculoskeletal system of the body to a state of balance and harmony.
I recognise that much of the pain/disability we suffer stems from changes to the way our body functions, through incidents in daily living. I assess each patient from a mechanical, functional and postural standpoint, and suggest and apply treatment techniques to suit the needs of each patient.
I also enjoy working with the active retired; who have aches and pains and believe it’s their age and they “have to live with it”, actually in many cases they don’t.
Please telephone me to discuss your particular issue(s) and whether I might be able to help you.
For this therapy you may need to be prepared to undress to underwear, depending on the area you need help with. I will usually need to massage up to the next joint. e.g. for a wrist problem, I will massage up to and just past the elbow, for a knee problem up to the hip. Please discuss on booking if you have any questions as to what to wear or concerns. I am always happy to find a way to make you feel most comfortable.
You will be asked to bring two bath towels – one to lie on and one to keep you covered as much as possible.
Please see the Contact page above, for booking information, location and costs.
“A big thank you to Lake for making me painfree and able to sleep without being woken up with back pain. I visited 3 times, and was treated in a very friendly, relaxed, yet professional practice. ” Julie
“I feel like a 2 year old!” Margaret (after treatment to help her knee pain caused by osteoarthritis).
After just one visit to this clinic, my hairdresser told me the next day: ‘This is the first time in 25 years of doing your hair that I haven’t needed to straighten you up. Your shoulders are level! How did that happen?’ I was only too pleased to tell her!” Sue.
“I first saw Lake in 2009 following a car accident at work which left me with neck and back pain. Lake resolved my injuries so quickly that when I decided to change careers the following year, I chose to study Osteopathy; Lake’s treatment of my problems was so effective that it inspired me to learn how it worked. Thanks Lake – you made a huge and positive difference to my life.” Jim Hurden, M.Ost, Registered Osteopath
“I’ve been in pain for 8 months. I can’t believe that after only one session you’ve given me so much relief already. A god-send!” Paul
“Thank you, I had shooting pains in my back and after a few sessions they were gone. Best money I’ve spent in ages! Brilliant!” Dennis
“The crippling groin pain I came in with, is now a background ache after one appointment. I wish I’d come before!” Sylvia
“Lake is an excellent therapist, who takes time to really listen to the patient and understand them as a whole person, rather than just as a sum of their ailments. Lake is friendly and welcoming, and puts you at ease as soon as you arrive.” Ruth
“I haven’t felt this painfree in ages!” Tina
“You saved my skiing career” Danny
“The best money I’ve spent this month.” Ian
“I can say hand on heart that I hobbled into see Lake, and each step was agony. Some of the treatment was painful but miraculous and in one treatment my pain level dropped from 100(!) out of 10, to 5 out of 10. This morning I was able to walk with very little pain and even wash-up. Lake was incredibily informative about what was happening with my back and how I could help my back going forward in my life. I had hope for the first time in 7 years – I am over the moon. And I can honestly say it’s the best money I’ve ever spent and I look forward to my next session.” Sally
