So nice to be back in clinic and using our hands.........

We've been reflecting on the effect of last year's lockdown. This is a picture from our first training session with new team members. Putting your hands on to people and paying attention to the information transmitted to your brain requires concentration and trust in the fact that you can feel subtleties through those hands. The art of 'listening to your hands' underpins our team's assessment skills. The density of nerve endings in the hands is profound, why wouldn't a therapist use these tools as much as possible in the assessment (and subsequent treatment) of a client? We are proud to use 'hands-on' treatment. Assessing the position of the body in space and relating it to pains or problems is best achieved and demonstrated when a clinician actually touches their client! While a virtual appointment was necessary through a full lockdown, we are definitely happy that we have clients back in to clinic and are hoping that this remains the case through the Christmas period.........
