Nat has worked on various parts of me - back, shoulder, neck, pelvis... always with great results, but working remotely was going to be new. I wasn't sure how it would work, and if I'm honest, whether it would work at all. Having been ill for a while I have done very little exercise recently and my back was very stiff and, after walking any distance, painful. I had sent photos and a video of me standing and walking and she saw where the issue lay as if I was in her studio. The testing was done through breath work and the resolution pinpointed. Nat then talked me through what to do and the procedure was exactly the same as one she has used on me previously, but with my hands instead of hers. This morning, my back was much easier and I have been for a walk with no stiffening up and no pain afterwards. As usual she videoed my homework and sent it to me. People talk about Nat's 'magic' and working remotely doesn't diminish it! Thank you Nat, once again you have taken the pain away.
Yes! This from the amazing Thomas Wells, one of my learning mentors. 😍
Nat has literally changed my life! After the recommended 4 treatment sessions I am now able to walk several miles and am taking part in keep fit challenges, something I just couldn't do before. The treatment sessions were a pleasure to receive and with Nats humour, care and knowledge I would highly recommend her if you have any issues with movement and pain. Thanks Nat ###

Despite what one of my favourite singers, Sting, thinks, HISTORY will teach us loads!!

The most common phrase I hear in clinic from clients is "but you don't need to know about that. It was years ago!"

Every single event that happens to your body leaves an imprint in the nervous system and that is exactly why I want to know as much info about your body as possible. It gives the bigger picture of why your body is responding in the way it does and why you are where you are now. Generally speaking, unless you have had an obvious impact to your complaint site, the pain will be caused by something else, and you will absolutely find the answer in the events that have come before.

Every d**k, donk, scar, surgery, sprain, strain, fall, cut has a consequence on your body.

What's your body's HISTORY?

Just because I'm female, does not mean that I just have female energy. In fact, I live my life very much in my Yang (masculine energy), always doing, finding it hard to stop.

I'm just home from a great Saturday morning of clinic appointments. I walked in and without even grabbing drink, went straight to my Yang mode of tidying the house whilst catching up with my daughter, sticking the laundry on, emptying the bins.....Luckily I caught myself and heard the whisper of my Yin energy, asking for some replenishment.

And here I am addressing the balance. I'm glad I heard my body's call!

Do you have a tendency of being a doer?
In imbalance of depleted /excess energy van also occur the other way round too?

Do you have balance and flow between the two?

Why might you want to look at your right shoulder if your left leg is hurting?
When we walk (or run), we use the opposite arm and leg and therefore generate force all along the diagonal line to propel forwards.
If something along the line is leaking energy or power, other elements will pick up the slack. If you can't provide power from your leg, your arm will, no doubt, work harder to compensate, and vice versa.
Do you have an injury to your opposite limb that may be making your painful limb work harder?

Remember, it's all connected!

FULL DISCLOSURE:
I'm a sucker for a TRIO bar, had a piece of cake at elevenses this morning (because I had stolen half an hour of alone time with my husband, so fully indulged in the tea and cake thing) and am partial to a pack of crisps!

HOWEVER, for my lunch I have just demolished a WHOLE roasted cauliflower whilst doing some online learning with the US. It was supposed to go in a yummy superfood salad, but it really was entirely super all on its own (it's all in the cooking, for sure - I would have never demolished steamed white cauliflower on its own!)

What surprise foods are you partial too?

What is going on with this weather?!🌞🌧🌥🤣
Yesterday morning looked like a write off, but the sun came out and we managed to cycle to Worthing and back to play on the outside gym.

I got inspired to get our slack line out and find a place to put it up and practice often, after Amelie was kindly allowed to use the one put up by 2 lovely guys working out down there.

I then managed a blissful paddle board to meet a friend and go for a swim.
Not bad for what looked like a soggy day in the morning!!

What did you get up to?

My heart is singing 💓
What an incredible boy, embracing his inner fabulousness.
Are you standing in your power today or are you keeping yourself small to 'fit in'?

Look at his energy compared to his classmates.

I know which way I would rather live my life 😍💖

Today was bitter sweet....
I have said goodbye to a client today because she doesn't need me now. I have loved working with her and she has completely trusted the process, despite revealing she has no idea how I do it!!!

After seeing a chiro, physio, physio, osteo and another physio for her complaint, we have just completed our 5th session together and she is all good.

We never worked on her complaint area directly, but instead, worked on the history of traumas that had led her body to rely on, and overuse her right hip which was causing her issues. She trusted the process, never demanded I work on the area directly and reaped the benefits with each session.

We wrapped up our work together with some amazing energy work that her body asked for and said our goodbyes.

My aim is to empower my clients to own their own rehab journey. The healing happens much quicker when clients are on board and open to the process. When they can trust that their own body has all the answers, instead of relying on me to fix them, that's when the MAGIC happens 💖💖💖

I still count my lucky stars that I found this fabulous place to build my clinic. I often joke that I expanded the Movement Space for my own playground.

It's been filling with more toys recently as I expand the movement therapy side of clinic. I love the couch based work I do and integrating that with functional movement practices is the vision that drives me forward.

Between clients, my own practice and body become my lab for my creativity. 10 mins here and there are all it takes to get my creative juices flowing (and increase my heart rate to keep my brain stimulated and the blood flowing for my day's work)

New things are afoot! Watch this space ❤

There is a common pattern with people I treat and talk to about pain....
Everything was great, then suddenly in their 30s/40s/50s, everything started to ache.

"I'm falling apart" is something I hear a lot in clinic. There's a common thought that at a certain age, everything starts to go downhill and people label themselves as 'broken'.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Our bodies are amazing at coping with everything we throw at them - all the donks, donks, surgeries, procedures, breaks, sprains, stresses and emotional load. They continually adapt and reroute to help us function amongst the dysfunction we put into the system daily! But the body also gets to a point where it runs out of options to reroute to. It's only way of getting our attention is to send out pain signals so we listen up and do something to redress the balance that has been continually disturbed over the years.

You are not broken. A little lost in your functional movement, yes. But defintiely not broken.

Sometimes the brain just needs to be shown a new way of doing things

Your body does not do well under stress, neither do the people around you! If ever there was a time to redress this, it's now!

This last year gave me the space to see what we could do as a family to destress our lives and lighten the load on each other.

Stress comes in so many forms, so there are sure to be some things that you can address immediately.

For starters, look at your sleep, how much you move each day, your hydration levels and the things you eat.

What can you lose to lighten the load?
In our house, cutting down on after school activities has absolutely lightened the stress of running around like a headless chicken during rush hour, and has given us all some much needed down time.

And then there's the personal work - working through our thoughts, beliefs and habitual, non serving patterns - a life's work, but so very necessary in gaining a healthy flow of energy 💖

Personality changes with stress. Look at the world today. Lots of these behaviors happening

Just drop in on social media and you see it.

You cannot get well in the same environment and you became ill within

That’s why one of the most powerful ways to heal is to change your environment. It’s a catalyst for change.

Goal: Find ways to decrease stress. One way way is to step away from the stressful environment. Especially if you don’t have the strength to choose what you focus on while you’re in the toxic environment

Our Story

Natalie Nicholson is a qualified Sports and Remedial massage therapist whose further training and development has taken her into working with the nervous system, working with a whole system approach to the structural, neurological, physiological and emotional stressors on the body to get long term results.

Her unique approach is very focused on finding the root cause of the problem to eliminate pain, rather than working with the symptoms that the client presents with.

She works very closely with her client’s historical timeline of their body to uncover the chain of compensation patterns laid down by the body to cope with the events that have happened to it in the past.

By piecing the clues together, she sees and works with the bigger picture of how and why your body is where it is so that you can get back to living life at its fullest potential.
