Dynamic Balance Badge

Dynamic Balance


Dynamic Balance recognises each person's body as a unique dynamic system subject to ever-changing pressures, stresses and demands which manifest themselves physically, physiologically and psychologically. While it is important to work on body structure it is also vital to address overall health issues and the more subtle energy systems that influence our health and well-being.

Our flexible therapeutic approach aims not only to relieve painful symptoms but to address, where possible, the source issue so that the treatment results in an overall improvement in health and well-being. Your body is a marvellous self-healing system which occasionally benefits from some gentle guidance to help it maintain optimal health. Dynamic Balance’s goal is to offer you that little extra.

PLATO (c.428-348 B.C.)


"The cure of the part should not be attempted without treatment of the whole. No attempt should be made to cure the body without the soul, and if the head and body are to be healthy you must begin by curing the mind, for this is the greatest error of our day in the treatment of the human body that physicians first separate the soul from the body."

Therapies

Dynamic Balance aims not only to relieve painful symptoms, but also to address, where possible, the source issue within the body, ensuring a more complete recovery for our clients.

As health professionals we are often shocked by the unnecessary discomfort that people accept. Our clients range from schoolchildren to office and manual workers to elite athletes and the elderly. We treat sports injuries, postural problems, headaches, frozen shoulders, neck and back pain, post-surgery issues, arthritic conditions and symptoms, sleeping difficulties and much more.

The sum of the parts is greater than that of the whole. We can stick to one particular therapy but we will normally use elements from all of the therapies described below using the best techniques to treat our clients:

  • Deep Tissue Massage
  • Sports Massage
  • Spinal Touch
  • The Dorn Method
  • Craniosacral Therapy
  • Barefoot Running Coaching
  • Kinesiology
  • Hyperton X
  • Trigger Point Release
  • Myofascial Release.

The complexity of the body is such that the area of discomfort may just be the manifestation of other structural problems. By understanding the Dynamic Balance of the body, different techniques can be used to stretch and stimulate specific structures, lengthen muscles, loosen adhesions, dissipating pain and restore a fuller range of motion. Furthermore the increase in circulation promotes healing and encourages a truly dynamic recovery.

A balanced body requires that some structures be lengthened and relaxed but others may need strengthened and tightened. For this reason exercises may be suggested to help you balance your body. We are happy to interact with your trainer or coach to optimise your condition.

Towels are supplied for massage treatments and modesty is respected by uncovering only the area to be worked on. A simple hypo-allergenic massage cream, which is absorbed into the skin, may be used, but oil or commercial aromatherapy oils can also be used if the client prefers.

For the first consultation some background information on general health is required. A simple questionnaire gets the ball rolling. For remedial work a more detailed description of the presenting condition and its symptoms will be sought.

Most treatments take one hour, but half hour sessions can be arranged when clients request work on a small or specific area. Some clients prefer a longer 90 minute session.

Dorn Method

The Dorn method is a simple non invasive, gentle method of correcting misalignments in the spinal column and joints. The clients’ muscles are actively involved in pulling the systems back into place – just as they were involved in pulling them out.

Spinal Touch

Spinal Touch is a method of correcting postural distortion by adjusting the sacrum so that the body’s natural centre of balance is in line with its centre of gravity.

Craniosacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method that works on the fluid system that surrounds the brain and spine. This system nourishes the nervous system and eliminates wastes. It is a very light work that is deeply relaxing.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is a derivation of Swedish massage that stimulates circulation of blood and lymph fluids. The main purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity.

Barefoot Running Coaching

When walking barefoot or in "barefoot shoes", we walk correctly. This means landing softly on the heel and using the power in your toes to push off. When we walk this way we tone muscles, increase sensory perception, improve posture and strengthen core.

Kinesiology

Kinesiology is a simple, safe and precise muscle testing procedure that can be used to recognise physiological and energy imbalances within the body and rectify them. Hyperton-X is a branch of kinesiology used to selectively test muscles for imbalance or inhibition due to injury or overuse.

Barefoot Running

Michele Hall and Deanne Tomasino

The barefoot movement isn’t a crazy fad to get dirty feet. We move differently barefoot, therefore it stands to reason that we move in a more natural way. Shoes change the dynamics of posture and movement this encourages the body to move outside its natural biomechanical design.

The result is dysfunction. Shoe manufactures have been torturing us to make money in the name of fashion or by promising us improved performance. The truth is that we have been delivered pain and dysfunction.

Michele believes it is time to return to simple natural movement and refuse to succumb to the marketing gurus. She also believes that as far as possible we should attend to our dysfunction by normalising and strengthening our bodies through movement, which is what we are designed for, rather than by supporting that dysfunction through built up shoes or irrelevant exercise. The "bare" part is important because it enforces the change, but of course warmth and protection are required in our habitat, so minimalist shoes that allow the feet to work is the way forward (as long as we are not once again drawn into the trap of clever advertising).

Michele, who is a qualified Barefoot Running coach, writes a blog which gives hints and tips on barefoot running, natural posture, movement and remedial exercise advice.

Clients should park at the Craigleith Rise Car Park. For security reasons access to our clinic is restricted during school hours so we ask our clients to arrive in time and call or text on arrival so that we can meet you at the door. At weekends, after 5 and throughout school holidays there is someone at reception to guide you on arrival.
