My journey is a result of being medically discharged from Royal Marines training. This spurred me to take ownership of my body in the realm of physical therapy.
I knew to reach my full potential I needed seek more than the help that was available conventionally. So my search for answers led me into the Dublin Anatomy in Motion immersion course in 2016. Since then I have been asked back as a teaching assistant for the courses which I take as a great honour. The immersion courses teach me to approach the body that movement is the key to breaking down the complexity of a symptom into a simplistic way of thinking. Its method of looking at the workings of the skeletal system holistically allows the me to make sense of the age old saying ‘everything is connected’. Grannies tomato sauce sets the benchmark because it is not trying to be innovative but because it is tried and true, this is how AiM became the base of my practice. Often quoted as the toolbox that houses the tools. Whether I’m carrying out manual work as a cranial sacral therapist, consulting S&C coaches periodising programmes or giving myself the confidence for multi-day expeditionary treks in the outdoors, I apply the philosophy and practice of AiM in all scenarios. I have found the trick for me, has been adhering to the 5 rules set by Gary in his courses. With that being said I recognise every journey has its hurdles but with a framework, under the right context we can use these struggles to work with the problem and develop a more polished and well organised understanding of AiM and its real world application.
