From my point of view I’m a pain reliever; whether from physical or mental or emotional tension. However there are many therapists in our area who can help with other aspects of the same problem that clients might employ me to help solve.
Because we are a fluid structure, and from a simplistic point of view if our muscles work in pairs; one releasing as its partner tightens, it stands to reason that if there is over-tension in one part there is under-tension in another part: If one part may require release and stretching, the opposing part would surely need exercising and relative strengthening.
For stretching and strengthening and help with general fitness I recommend Murray Fifield; “Absolute Personal Training”, he is my trainer, stretcher and motivator. Murray works from Brad’s gym; “Results”, which I think is the best gym in Nelson.
