MovementWorks is a holistic approach to facilitating change in the body.
We focus on restoring health and preventing injury by finding the underpinning cause of pain and re-educating your body’s sequence of movement so that it feels safe to move.
What makes our approach different is our understanding of how the body moves through space – bones move, muscles react and joints feel. We also understand that pain and dysfunction in the body can originate from emotional trauma, and that individual bodies adapt to the stresses we experience through life.
What to expect
We specialise in soft tissue mobilisation using a variety of techniques suited to each individual [could link to ‘Therapies’ page here]. Treatment may be performed while you are standing and moving. We focus on gentle touch techniques and movement, but sometimes deep tissue techniques are appropriate and may be incorporated into a treatment.
Your first visit
During your first consultation, we’ll discuss any health-related issues and concerns. We’ll also need some general information about you, your background, medical history and the nature of your condition. This is so that we can provide the best possible care, tailored to you.
You will have your first treatment during this visit.
Before leaving, you’ll be given suggestions for certain activities or procedures to do at home. This may include ice or heat applications, avoidance of certain activities or positions, and exercises.
You can make a follow-up appointment at the end of your treatment. In acute cases 2-4 treatments are usually recommended.
Lucy is a very experienced and gifted practitioner. The craniosacral session was profound and healing. I have not hesitated in booking in for another session.
Lucy is an incredible therapist, with a mind blowing understanding of the human body. I drive from East Sussex to see Lucy, as I always feel so much better once I've had my treatment. Thank you
If there were more specialists like Lucy around, I am convinced there would be a reduction in pain relief and doctor’s appointments. I would, and do, recommend Lucy’s skills to anyone with muscular discomfort.
Appointments with Lucy are a real treat. I enjoy being a guinea pig for any new techniques she has, and love it when she explains how the exercises work: she has a vast knowledge.
My partner was involved in a motorcycle accident which caused nystgmus (uncontrolled eye movement). The day after an appointment with Lucy his nystgmus was gone and he felt considerably better.
For a number of years, I had been bothered by back and arthritic hip pain. Doctors could only offer surgery or heavy pain killers. After a series of treatments at MovementWorks, I experienced immediate relief and have continued to improve.
