The Gyrotonic® - One to one exercise therapy for well being, health, posture and pain relief.

The Gyrotonic® Expansion System is a totally new one to one exercise system for well being and health, which exercises the musculature while mobilising and articulating the joints. It is unique in that it strengthens and stretches at the same time with minimal effort, increasing the range of movement and co-ordination. It uses aspects of, swimming, ballet, yoga, tai chi and gymnastics. The system allows muscle groups to be worked interdependently and in an integrated manner.

The Gyrotonic® training is done on a specially designed piece of equipment (The White Cloud Machine) which emphasises multiple joint articulation strengthening the surrounding ligaments including the attachments. The exercises use hand and foot-operated wheelbases and suspended pulleys to create resistance. There are 50 sets of exercises with about 130 variations to stretch, bend, twist and turn muscles with minimal effort.

The motion patterns are natural and flowing and through the rotating movement patterns of the joints a balanced support system for the skeleton is created. Attention is given to increase the functional capacity of the spine resulting in a well proportioned body, which is less likely to incur injury. Correcting such muscular imbalances and limitations in joint range of motion helps to reduce and even eradicate fatigue, pain and immobility.

The Gyrotonic® Expansion System is particularly beneficial to athletes by helping to improve endurance versatility and gracefulness to all performed competitive skills and movements.

The Gyrotonic® Expansion System is used world-wide by people of all walks of life, from children to senior citizens, to help in injury rehabilitation as well as general health and well being. It is also used extensively by dancers and sports people for rehabilitation and performance improvement.

I first tried Nicki because I wanted some TLC. As a working mother with a 4 year old toddler Reflexology was a treat. But then I started feeling and seeing the impact of the treatment and was hooked. We tried for 18 months to fall pregnant and with Nicki's holistic approach to everything in life I tried Craniosacral Therapy with the Reflexology. I am convinced that led us to being able to conceive our second child. If you are looking for a well balanced and inspiring therapist with a holistic approach - look no further you have found her!
