Repetitive Strain Injuries:
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.
