מה הוביל אותך להיות אוסטיאופט?

I always had an interest in a healthy lifestyle eating well and exercises at a young age.

In my early 20’s I was competing in triathlons and went to a sports Chiropractor to see if there was anything he could do to help my performance. I wasn’t in pain but I just wanted to see if I needed to stretch anything to balance myself out. I had an x-ray and he pointed out about 10 different things that were ‘wrong’ with my back. One of them was a small slippage of one vertebra on the other. This made me very fearful of exercise and I started adopting a protective behaviour when it came to my back. Unfortunately this led me to have back pain! I saw a lot of different professionals for help and finally I saw an osteopath. He helped me the most and it was so different to the other modalities that I decided to go back to University to study…I already had a degree in Exercise and Sport Science. While there I asked one of the teachers about my x-ray and the back pain and he told me that all the finding were in the realm of normal for an active teenager and that I shouldn’t worry about it…that helped my mindset immensely and the back pain cleared up soon after!




למה התמקדת בסקוליוזיס?

Scoliosis management isn’t taught well at undergrad level. This isn’t specific to osteopathy, the same goes for physiotherapy, chiropractic, massage and even medicine. After I graduated I wanted a better understanding of human movement and function and completed the 40 week mentorship with Gary Gray in the USA. During that course we discussed scoliosis and a lightbulb went off in my head as I started to connect the dots between movement and exercises for scoliosis. I took what they taught me; principles of movement, planes of motion etc and developed the Scoliosis Correction Protocol. It started as an adjunct to my hands on work but I soon realized that the people who did best where the ones who did the exercises. My hands on works, as it turns out, wasn’t that important!




מהי השיטה המרכזית שלך להתמודדות עם סקוליוזיס?

The Scoliosis Correction Protocol is the main way I help people. It is an online course that shows people a whole body approach to scoliosis. We start by assessing the body, helping with back pain, then move on to scoliosis exercises while addressing mindset and strengthening the rest of the body. We also touch on nutrition and what you eat can affect your inflammation levels and your pain.


כיצד התמודדת אתה עם כאבי גב?




Hannah somatics was created by Thomas Hannah. He built on the work of the Alexander Technique and Feldenkrais. The movements help retrain the brain to relax muscles to their optimal resting length. Most of us spend much of the day with muscles either too tight or too loose. Somatics helps address that imbalance. The movements are very gentle and at first don’t seem to help, but once applied consistently they make a huge difference. I use the movements as part of a continuum from non functional exercises to functional exercises. For example if someone has back pain I might start with them lying down and doing Hannah Somatics. Once the pain has reduced a little they will move to kneeling, from kneeling they will move to standing. At each stage the exercises become more and more functional, which means they become more like what we as humans do every day.

מה דעתך על קינסיולוגיה יישומית?

I was first showed AK at university and I didn’t think much of it. When someone is muscle testing it hard to really know if they are just pressing harder or not and I didn’t understand how it worked. Then I was introduced to a form of therapy called P-DTR. This was put together by a Mexican shoulder surgeon who didn’t just dismiss AK but asked, “How could it work?” He then realized that a lot of the muscle weakness or in ability to fire is actually caused by over stimulated receptors in the skin and muscles. He developed a way of testing for those receptors with muscles testing and, in my mind, removed a lot of the errors that can happen in AK. On the surface it looks similar but there is a much more scientific rational behind the tests.

מה מייחד את הקורסים שאתה מציע להתמודדות עם כאבי גב ועקמת?

I have courses for both back pain and scoliosis.

What I’ve tried to do is make them assessable to anyone in the world so that they don’t need to waste time travelling to and from practitioners for short treatments. It’s been my experience both personally and professionally that the best way to manage back injuries is not via passive therapy (although this can help sometimes) but by active movements. The courses take people through a testing protocol and then a mobility and strengthening protocol.

Both culminate in natural movements.

If I reduced the process to 4 areas it would be:

1. Evaluation- we need to know what is going on in the area of injury and how the rest of your body is interacting with it.


2. Isolation - we may need to temporarily hone in on a few areas.


3. Integration - It’s time to integrate the injured area into the rest of the body for optimal body movement.


4. Liberation - Lastly I help the person do or accomplish whatever it is that brings them joy. I call this last step Body Liberation. Having the freedom in your body to do what you want to do without the fear of the of the injury returning.
