Learn to move and be without impairment from pain
Are you living with pain?
No one is listening to me
I have tried everything
Why can't they
not for me!
I just want to be 'me' again
I can’t be in this much pain for the rest of my life!
I know something is not right
Understanding your pain
Chronic health illnesses and pain can be caused by a number of influences in our body. That’s why at 4U Pilates & Wellbeing, we take a holistic view of your health - your body, brain, hormones, emotions, nutrition and gut health, nervous system, connective tissue systems and endocrine system. Because imbalances in any of these areas overloads our system, resulting in poor posture, hypertonic muscles, loss of balance, loss of sensation, weight gain and gut issues, lethargy, feeling tired or wired, or injuries and pain that takes longer to go away.
The pathway to chronic pain
The pathway to chronic pain starts with an incident or trigger, that causes an imbalance in your muscles or other body systems.
Perhaps a physical injury such as a fall, slip, lifting, twisting. Biochemical changes - food allergies, intolerances, excess stress, and pre-pain symptoms.
After the initial imbalance and pre-pain symptoms, the body and mind start to develop compensatory patterns to alleviate the pain, trauma, inflammation,
This can be a change in the way you move, your
behaviours, mood, mindset.
Changes in eating patterns, sleeping patterns etc.
Without early intervention earlier, your body makes structural and biochemical changes to accommodate the new patterns you have created.
How you think, feel, speak, move, eat, behave, function is now 'the norm' for your body. New, different or worse symptoms.
By the time your body reaches chronic pain, you have overwhelmed and overstressed your physical, emotional and nervous systems. No wiggle room or buffer zone.
You are now looking a medical intervention to cure or relieve the pain or symptom(s) - either through long term medication or Surgery.

Getting you moving, keeping you moving
Becoming the 'real me' again
We begin our journey together, using Functional Kinesiology to identify the key imbalances in your body – whether that is biological, emotional, hormonal, or digestive.
Then we create a programme tailored for you, using a mix of Functional Kinesiology, massage, MELT and Pilates to help to get you moving so you can start to
‘feel like me again’.

When will I see results?
At the end of every session Zoisa will have rebalanced your body. However, your mind and body have spent months, maybe even years learning to walk, move or think in the alternative compensatory pattern and will want to revert to this, so we need to retrain the body and mind to move without pain and without impairment. When you look at our 'pathway to chronic pain' above, you can understand how long it took from initial incident to chronic pain and we need to unwind that journey physically and emotionally and re-learn to move correctly.
Your body CAN!
The journey requires self-responsibility. You need to be prepared to commit your time, effort, discipline, dedication and determination but we will help you regain your mobility by creating a plan of action, selecting the mix of Functional Kinesiology, massage, MELT, Pilates and movement sessions that is right for you, as well as providing ongoing support, education, guidance and encouragement.
Touch 4 Health Functional Kinesiology starts with an initial assessment with Zoisa which is a 90-minute session. Sessions after that are 60 minutes. Whilst you can have as many sessions as you feel you need; we find that people who have 6 or more regular sessions see greater benefits and we offer discounted packages for 4, 8 and 12 sessions as well as the option to spread payments over 2 and 3 months.
