Helen Peacock  Body Mind Therapies - Hellerwork and Craniosacral Therapy in Victoria, British Columbia

Area Specific Therapy:

Relieve Shoulder & Neck StressAlthough Structural Integration was not designed to treat injuries or resolve chronic pain issues, the techniques and vision have been demonstrated repeatedly to be very effective in promoting healing. Clients who enter the Series with goals of finding more balance in their body/mind, for example, have often found pains accumulated from the stresses of their daily lives melting away.

Over time, an approach bringing together the skills and knowledge of a Hellerwork practitioner has evolved to enhance injury rehabilitation, surgical recovery and chronic pain. Individual sessions of myofascial release are available for those wishing to address a specific concern. This focused work is useful in healing and releasing scar tissue, or in resolving chronic tension or holding patterns. Sessions of myofascial release are also very compatible in working together with other treatments such as physiotherapy, acupuncture, chiropractic and counselling.

A session may also include exercises or stretches to assist in the healing, as well as in learning new patterns for day to day activities. This movement re-education continues the process of change that has been initiated by the bodywork.

Some examples of conditions for which this may be appropriate:

• Whiplash or other motor vehicle accident injuries
• TMJ disorders (jaw tension)
• Athletic injuries
• Post surgical recovery

Repetitive Strain Injuries:

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome treatmentRepetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are addressed through a specialized program that has had remarkable success in relief from symptoms and in empowerment for the client. Designed by Sharon Butler, author of Conquering Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Other Repetitive Strain Injuries, this approach combines myofascial release techniques based on Hellerwork principles, with self-care exercises and ergonomic awareness. For nearly 20 years, Sharon Butler has helped thousands of RSI sufferers to find relief, many of whom traveled long distances to receive treatment. In 2000 Helen trained with Sharon to bring the Butler Method to Victoria.
