Teresa Beltrame graduated as a Physiotherapist in 1994 with Honours.
Since then she has obtained a Graduate Diploma in Clinical Rehabilitation and
has qualified as a Titled Neurological Physiotherapist.
In 2003 her interests expanded into wholistic care, engaging with the emotional, psycho-social and physical aspects of health. Her interest in treating fascia has resulted in her achieving advanced levels in Cranio-Sacral, Visceral Therapy and Fascial Counter-Strain.
She utilises other light body work techniques including Faster EFT and Integrated Acupuncture. Her interest areas are working with Neurological Conditions and treating body symptoms with an Integrated Manual Therapy approach.
Fascial courses completed; CST 1 & 2, SER 1 & 2, Pregnancy/Birth, Visceral 1-5, NM1. APA accredited Integrative acupuncture, Fascial Counterstrain of the Viscera and Lymphatic/Viens, Musculo-Skeletal ligaments , FEFT Level 1.
In addition to conventional Neurological and Musculo-Skeletal physiotherapy Teresa uses the below fascial therapies in an integrated therapy approach.
Uses gentle manipulation techniques for the organs and fascia [the connective tissue that surrounds organs] to release specific structural and/or emotional restrictions which are the underlying causes for 80% of musculo-skeletal pain.
Uses gentle techniques applied mostly to the skull and the pelvis in order to release fascial restrictions throughout the dura [outer covering] of the spinal column/brain. The effects are felt throughout the body. These techniques can also facilitate healing with Somato-Emotional Release (SER).
Allows the client to re-experience a traumatic event and in so doing release the negative memory/event from the tissues. The negative emotional attachment to the trauma is reduced with the result that it no longer dominates the clients physical or subconscious states.
Counterstrain practitioners remove painful, reflexive tissue contractions from the body via a gentle hands-on process of slackening or decompressing the involved structures. The treatments are completely painless making them a viable option for even the most painful and delicate cases. Counterstrain’s powerful, multi-system effects occur from a deactivation of deep fascial pain receptors (nociceptors) which maintain the body’s soft tissues in a persistent guarded or "over-protective" state.
