The Healing Benefits of Physiokey Therapy

By Louise Macgregor, Physiokey Therapist

As Lime’s resident Physiokey Therapist specialising in pain relief and stress and anxiety management, I am very passionate about the Physiokey technology and its capabilities because I have experienced first-hand what it can do.

Prior to becoming aPhysiokey Therapist, I was first a patient at Lime.  Having undergone a bilateral mastectomy and TRAM reconstruction in April 2015, I was introduced to SCENAR/Physiokey Therapy as part of myown rehabilitation.

With Physiokey Therapy my body healed very quickly, and I regained all my movement that had been restricted from cording.

Having cancer made me re-evaluate my life and what I was doing with it.  I think it’s important when these things happen to usthat we use it to help others. That’s why I became a Physiokey Therapist and I bring to my role my own experience and empathy for others going through cancer and the emotional rollercoaster that goes with diagnosis, surgery and rehabilitation.

Physiokey therapy can help to reduce pain and facilitate functional restoration and improvement.

I treat pain related to all kinds of health conditions including neuropathic pain resulting from cancer treatment, sports injuries, joint and back pain and pain in general- both chronic and acute.

With acute injuries results are obtained more quickly as it is a recent condition.

Healing from chronic conditions can take a little longer as your body has stopped listening to the messages coming from that area and treats the condition as normal, which we liken to your body being stuck on a roundabout. My job using Physiokey therapy is to build you a road off that roundabout and train your body to self-regulate to a point where the pain is reduced and functionality is improved.

The therapy I offer is not just limited to pain relief, but I also assist people to remove emotional blocks that may be associated with past traumas or emotional stress and anxiety.

In my experience, I’ve found that the body doesn’t know the difference between emotional pain and physical pain. It treats them both the same way and sometimes our emotions can show up as neck and back pain or joint pain or other health challenges.

Unless we deal with the emotional component we won’t always get a full healing response. Likewise, if people are constantly weighed down with stress and anxiety then it is the perfect environment for other health challenges and pain to manifest.

After 90 minutes in a “Relax and Restore” session my patients feel totally relaxed and a lot of emotional burdens will be removed, which may have beenholding them back,and of which they may not have been aware.

It’s a beautiful treatment with a lot of excellent health benefits, particularly reducing stress and anxiety, conditions that far too many people are suffering in today’s fast paced and overwhelming world.

My passion is helping people to have incredible health, both physically and emotionally, and to live a quality pain-free, stress-free life by assisting their body to function and heal the way it was designed to.

I love working in a multi-disciplinary clinic with other like-minded clinicians where our sole focus is collectively creating the best possible health outcomes on all levels for our patients.

Total healing often involves not just the physical, but also the spiritual and emotional and that’s what we all do here.
