We are pleased to introduce you to Jo Hadley who is joining our team at the Wholistic Medical Centre in January 2020.
Jo is a physiotherapist with over 30 years experience. Jo uses many techniques but her main manual therapy diagnostic and treatment tool is a wholistic technique called Fascial Manipulation by Stecco. It recognizes the interconnectedness of the entire body including the visceral systems as well as musculoskeletal. Fascia is a connective tissue which surrounds all cells of the body in a multi-directional network that connects not only the head to the toes etc, but also connects every system in the body. Fascial Manipulation by Stecco method/technique is a holistic whole person approach that covers not only musculo-skeletal issues but also internal dysfunctions caused by tight restricted fascia surrounding the organs. Often past injuries or sites of fascial tension can ‘silently’ be contributing to newer more current injuries/symptoms and these former injury sites need to be addressed as well as the current area of injury/illness/symptoms. Often if you discover & treat the source of the symptoms then a true resolution is possible.
Jo also is a keen distance runner and has completed 15 marathons and numerous half marathons around the world, including 2 Boston marathons. She is passionate in treating running injuries and knows that these injuries require not only good technique, good training plans, a gradual increase in training loads, but also a balanced body, mind & soul.
