I post a lot about the results I get with my clients simply because the human body fascinates me. I truly am a geek and when I learn something new I love to share as I believe knowledge is power for my clients.
Now I label what I do as Biomechanics Coaching. But I'm not just a Biomechanics Coach. I'm also a Sports Massage Therapist and a Fitness Professional. Those last 2 terms people understand. But Biomechanics Coaching on the other hand usually needs some explaining.
So what is Biomechanics Coaching?
Although each Biomechanics Coach may explain what they do a little differently, for me Biomechanics Coaching allows me to asses and understand what is going on within the body when it comes to movement.
Then, using whatever techniques that I have acquired over the years (and will continue to acquire) I work with my clients to get them moving freely and without pain.
It takes the guesswork out. I know where I need to focus my attention because I have a way of assessing what is going on. Which means it saves time, money and energy not only for myself but also for my clients.
Now I'm not ignorant enough to believe that doing something different would not also produce the same results. It may. Whether it's Physiotherapy, Osteopathic manipulation, Chiropractic work, Bowen technique, Pilates, Yoga, Meditation, Massage, foam rolling, and so on.
But at the end of the day, we as Coaches, Therapist, Practitioners, or whatever the term we decide to use, are all working towards the same goal....a happy client.
One technique is not superior to another. It's simply what works for that specific client at that particular time. And the more skills we possess the better equipped we be to help our clients. More tools in the box if you like.
After all there is more than one way to skin a cat.
