WELCOME TO THERAPIES BY HUGH
A multidisciplinary approach to Aquatic Remedial Therapy and Remedial Bodywork & Movement Therapies. Hugh’s approach is subtle yet powerful, encouraging and allowing client’s bodies to move and release with ease and comfort. The Aquatic sessions utilise the natural supportive qualities found in the water, which allows Clients to move their bodies in ways they may not be able to in their day to day life. The water is ideal for clients with mobility issues and who are undertaking physical rehabilitation.
The table sessions allow Hugh to focus on more specific issues and injuries and allows clients to experience a more self guided therapeutic experience. Table sessions are built around exploring postural, energetic and emotional alignment. Somatic movement and yoga classes are also available upon request. Hugh considers the work “An experience” with Therapeutic benefits, a must for everyone.
