About

The MAT Clinic's purpose is to keep Therapy in Motion, thereby you moving forwards, physically, mentally and emotionally.

 

We are a family run clinic with a holistic East meets West approach to treatment. Traditional western therapies working alongside the eastern system of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

How is our integrated approach different?

 

The treatment pathways open to you, allow us to interrupt perpetual cycles that can lead to issues but also issues repeating themselves and becoming habits/patterns or behaviours. A running injury could well be emotional guarding, which manifests as a change in running gait, which in turn changes the structure and the runner continues to pick up injuries. Anxiety, trauma or depression does not always appear as someone appearing sad, moody, withdrawn, angry etc. They could, in fact, be highly motivated and a "high flier", masking these issues by putting their energies into work, which can lead them to burn out, illness or disease. Interestingly, these issues can also manifest as training hard in their downtime, becoming injured more frequently and not understanding the mechanisms that are driving this.

Look at the pictorial representation below. See how each of these stages feeds/leads into another phase. At the MAT Clinic our integrated approach gives us the ability to interrupt any of these stages to create lasting change to keep you moving forwards.

Physically we treat musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions, these include; back pain, neck pain, hip pain, shoulder pain and joint pain, as well as nerve issues such as sciatica. We use a variety of techniques from differing systems including; soft tissue massage, articulations, manipulations, stretches, exercise prescription, kinesiology taping, acupuncture, acupressure and more.

 

Mentally and Emotionally we support you to address or approach underlying issues/conditions that can lead to; anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD, phobia, stress or the stunting of self development, both business and personal. You can access, Counselling, Coaching, Creative Therapy, Trauma Release and Hypnotherapy, working alongside iRest Therapy, that has its roots in the Indian traditions of therapy and meditation.

 

Between the approaches of traditional western medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) we are able to meet the client where they find themselves; supporting with understanding, initiating the treatment plan, creating momentum and moving them forwards to a new place of greater understanding, healing and health.

 

This is 'Therapy in Motion'.
