Madeline is also extremely passionate about working with individuals in a holistic manner, understanding the mind-body connection and how complex this relationship is when dealing with persistent pain.

Dom’s first experience as a manual therapist began at the age of 10 years after his father (also a therapist) injured his back falling from a roof. With his guidance, Dom attempted to fix his father’s injury through massage. Whether or not it was Dom’s treatment or simply the passage of time, his father’s back slowly healed, and as a result Dom developed an unusual and sustaining confidence in his ability to understand and resolve musculoskeletal issues. From that point on he also took great interest in the mechanics of the body.
Dom’s background in martial arts has lead him to the realisation of balance in his life efforts, and the ability to assist in the recovery process of those injured fits perfectly with this philosophy. After a lifetime of observing human structure and movement within the martial arts paradigm, Dom finds that his two knowledge bases feed into each other greatly.
Nowadays, Dom’s passion for creating functional, pain free bodies takes up most of his time. He has a keen interest in treating chronic pain, sports injuries, and improving athletic performance through manual therapy, functional training and rehabilitation. Dom loves a complex case, and has a good track record for resolving them.
