Specialist interests

Acupuncture

Moira is an advanced member of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP) and has been practising acupuncture for over 10 years.  She completed a 3 year clinical Masters degree in Acupuncture in 2011 which enables her to integrate the more common  Western approach to acupuncture with a the Traditional Chinese Medicine view enabling a more rounded treatment approach.  For more information on acupuncture visit the AACP website.

Frozen Shoulders

Moira is a certified Niel-Asher Technique Therapist which advocates the use of deep massage and specifically releasing ‘knots’ in the shoulder muscles rather than forcing the shoulder joint itself. 

Myofascial Release

Over the last few years Moira has become increasingly interested in the way the entire body is linked together through connective tissue / fascia.  This modern view of the human body emphasises the assessment and treatment of the body as one unit rather than individual muscles and joints and helps explain why so many people have multiple pain patterns. 

Breathing Pattern Disorders

For the last 15 years Moira has had close links with a local Respiratory Consultant and has worked with his patients restoring optimal breathing patterns in patients with chronic hyperventilation syndrome. Something a simple as a poor breathing pattern can have surprising consequences in many areas of health and fitness.
