The Walker technique is a soft tissue, remedial technique developed out of the Alexander technique and the Bowen technique. It is an holistic treatment which aims to address the body as a whole as well as particular conditions.
The technique can be given through light clothing. It comprises movements over key, remote and local areas of the body which aim to release blockages in the fascia with a view to improving function. It also uses therapeutic procedures to address imbalances in function.
The principle areas for treatment can include the head, jaw, shoulders, arms, hands, diaphragm, pelvis, spine, legs, knees, ankles and feet and problems associated with these areas.
Other conditions which can be addressed include digestive problems, sinusitis, fatigue, breathing disorders, and stress-related symptoms and disorders. The technique has also been used in connection with M.E. and fibromyalgia.
The first treatment may take up to one and a half hours at a cost of £65. Any further treatments will cost £45 each.
