Physiotherapist, Marelle Wilson, has undergone extensive training in Mindfulness Meditation, and teaches people in a 1:1 within our treatment rooms and class setting how to incorporate this into their daily lives.
Mindfulness Mediation can be taught in conjunction with Physiotherapy treatment, as a standalone treatment, or through a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course.
We require 60 minutes for your initial Mindfulness Meditation assessment to thoroughly go through your history, goals, and any other questions you may have.
Generally, our Physiotherapist takes you through a meditation within the session, and provides you with a recommended treatment plan to guide you through your options. These may include home practice, ongoing 1:1 sessions or a more dedicated Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course. As every person is different, our treatment plans change depending on what your goals are.
