For over 30 years Sukyee has worked with people suffering from orthopaedic, neurological problems and pain.  In her training as a Feldenkrais Practitioner she has integrated her knowledge of anatomy, physiology and neuroscience in her practice by guiding her clients to move with ease and comfort, combining the somatic learning model of Feldenkrais Method and Physiotherapy.  Along with the slow, smooth and continuous mindful movements in Tai Chi for Health programme Sukyee enables the students to move with better balance by teaching them how to optimally use their breath and internal strength (Qi) to enhance flexibility.  Sukyee uses her skills from physiotherapy, Feldenkrais Method and Tai Chi underpinning her holistic approach in her practice.  Acupuncture may be used alongside physiotherapy treatment to treat a range of health problems such a as low back pain, frozen shoulder, plantar fasciitis, anxiety, stress, insomnia and pain.  

Sukyee has worked extensively with infants and children with special needs, and developmental challenges.  

“Through awareness, we can learn to move with astonishing lightness and freedom at almost any age.” – Moshe Feldenkrais 

    

PHYSIOTHERAPY

Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. It can also help to reduce your risk of injury or illness in the future.

Sukyee has worked within the NHS but now takes a holistic approach that involves the patient directly in their own care.

FELDENKRAIS

The Feldenkrais Method of somatic education is a practice, a process, and a system for self-improvement.  It uses movement and awareness of your own body sensations to guide you in the shifts your are seeking.  The Feldenkrais Method is not a treatment or exercise programme. It is based on biomechanics, physics, neuroscience and somatic learning theory, and human development to give you the means to help yourself.

TAI CHI

Tai Chi combines deep breathing and relaxation with flowing movements. Originally developed as a martial art in 13th-century China, Tai Chi is now practised as a health-promoting exercise. In China, Tai Chi is practised by people of all ages to improve balance, coordination and breathing. Tai Chi can help with relief of stress and anxiety.

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture involves stimulating sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscles of the body, resulting in the body producing natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins.

The traditional belief is that an energy, or “life force” (Qi ), flows through the body in channels called meridians. When Qi doesn’t flow freely through the body, this can cause illness. Acupuncture can restore the flow of Qi, and so restore health.
