Nicholas Cowx

I am a qualified osteopath, having graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 1997. During my 4 year training I encountered the work of Ida Rolf and was impressed by her innovative ideas in relation to organising the body. My interest in structural integration was rekindled when I bought Tom Myers book ‘Anatomy Trains’ some years later.

The fact that the Kinesis approach to Structural Integration, like that of Osteopathy, was grounded in anatomy strongly appealed to me. I pursued this interest and I am now a certified Kinesis practitioner. As an Osteopath I tend to deal in short term problems, I firmly believe that Structural Integration, through helping the body fulfil it’s potential by allowing greater balance and ease, offers a long term aid to a healthier & more fulfilling life. I practise from Emsworth on the Hants/ W. Sussex border and am prepared to do home visits in either county if a suitable space for treatment is available.

Nikki Collis

I have been practicing sports and remedial massage since 2004 and qualified as a KMI practitioner in 2008. Whilst interested in sports science and the benefits of massage in injury rehabilitation and prevention, I became frustrated by the common postural issues widely seen regardless of activity level, which were only temporarily helped by massage. KMI provided the solution to this frustration, offering lasting improvements, along with a new set of possibilities that changing posture and alignment may be used to improve sports performance. I am based in London, working from clinics in Holborn and Chelsea.

Tyler Cornelius

I came to my career through a fascination with the human body and how it worked. I first trained in Holistic massage and, interested in how I could affect health in a far more fundamental way, enrolled to train on a 5 year BSc Hons degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine in 1999. In 2004, this qualified me to practice Acupuncture and its supplementary therapies and to prescribe Chinese herbal medicine. I went on to study remedial bodywork as so many of my clients required a depth of skills to deal effectively with their pain and musculoskeletal complaints. I enjoy treating this, but found it the hardest to address long-term. I trained in Sports/Remedial massage and Tuina, but found that it wasn’t whole-bodyfocused and the stroke often felt wasteful. I then did some training in Myofascial Bodywork and this felt ‘righter’. I also had a SI series and I found it to be really effective for my own discomforts and was also amazed at it’s effects on my emotions, energy and visceral balance.

I like the whole-body approach/ non-separation of the mind and body in Structural Integration: it feels similar to Chinese Medicine in that way. It is another elegant therapy whose theories and practice are fundamentally based on the relationship between energy and health.

Practice specialities: KMI Structural Integration; Traditional Acupuncture; Chinese Herbal Medicine: Integrative Bodywork; Intraoral Bodywork; Myofascial Bodywork; Obsteric Acupuncture & Bodywork.

Areas of Special Interest: Joint, muscle pain and injury; post-operative recovery; sports- conditioning; postural alignment; neurological and respiratory disorders.

Annie Holmes

For nearly 30 years, I have worked in the field of Physiatrics, and been a Bodywork/Movement and Aesthetics Practitioner. I am also qualified in several Complimentary Therapies as well as Body Alignment Technique.

I run a private practice, The Chesham Clinic, in Buckinghamshire, specialising in Kinesis Myofascial Integration (KMI) Fascial Release and Advanced Facial Solutions.

In 1988 I was privileged to train with and work for the legendary Lotte Berk, a pioneer in body movement and function and became one of her teachers in London for several years.

In the last decade I was introduced to KMI and the work of Thomas Myers. Convinced about the importance to health and well being of a structurally aligned body, I studied KMI as a way of deepening my understanding of whole body Postural Patterns and Myofascial Release.

I was blessed to have had the opportunity to study with Thomas Myers himself and also James Earls, Lauren Christman and Mike Doxey. I qualified as a KMI practitioner in 2010.

Nicki Brown

I have been a massage therapist since 1999, graduating from the prestigious London School of Sports Massage in 2004. Intrigued by posture and the effect it can have on people, their lives and health I studied various techniques until I discovered Structural Integration which has provided many answers and also more questions.

The human body is incredible and fascinating and there is always so much more to learn and understand about how and why it works as it does. I am currently studying Visceral Manipulation which will add to the strong foundation for my practice in Sports Massage and Structural Integration.

Over the years I have followed other areas of interest to me, adding to my skills base. This enables me to offer my client a broad range of treatments including Intra-oral Massage (for jaw and neck problems), Hot Stone Fusion Massage, Pregnancy Massage and Reflexology.

I love working with a broad spectrum of the population which includes adults, children, athletes, people who are injured or in pain and those who enjoy a massage for relaxation. I love this work for the variation and challenges it provides.

My clinic is in the pretty village of Checkendon, close to Henley-on-Thames, Reading, Wallingford and Pangbourne. I also work at Complete Physiotherapy in Reading.

I enjoy being outdoors, tennis being my main sport, playing for a club and County teams. Sports and keeping fit are important to me and I like to cycle, run and swim.

Neil Goodenough MSc MCSP

Since my life changed in 2004, after selling a successful pub/restaurant business, I seized the opportunity to build on my initial love and to at last use my Psychology degree. With a few oblique steps and a year studying Anatomy & Physiology, Swedish Massage and Reflexology; I became a Reiki practitioner, trained with the Vodder School in Manual Lymphatic Drainage with Combined Decongestive Therapies Level III. But then Art Riggs, assisted by James Earls, hooked me into the world of Structural Integration and with the guidance of KMI, I had found a home for my mind, intuition and hands. Applied Psychology made sense and the invitation to help others find movement and embodiment is a gift I cherish each day. I hope to expand my work to athletes, actors, and performers. I have been fortunate to become a somanaut through a gift received in one of Gil Hedley’s human dissection workshops. This changed my life and my work, brought a depth and an understanding, and helped my fingers see a little more clearly.

I just graduated with a MSc Physiotherapy and work from my private practice overlooking the North East coast of England and on the very edge of the North Yorkshire Moors.

SPECIALTIES: Physiotherapy, KMI Structural Integration, Vodder Manual Lymphatic Drainage.

Angela Donovan BCSI (CM)

Structural Balance is the name of a clinic owned by Angela Donovan BCSI (CM) in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.

Fascinated by the work and its phenomenal success of correcting structural problems, Angela Donovan began training to be a Structural Integrator in 2010.

Angela has been interested in human structure, balance and performance for a long time. Inspired by her mother, Jo Radley who is an Acupuncturist and previous tutor at the College of Traditional Acupuncture and a trained Structural Integrator from the Guild for Structural Integration in Boulder Colorado, and San- Francisco.

Angela began her training with the British School of Osteopathy, where she gained her Access to Higher Education Diploma (Osteopathic Sciences & Health Care) and was invited to train with the BSO to become an Osteopath.

Whilst training she came across Tom Myers and his concept of Anatomy Trains Myofascial Meridians and learnt of his school, Kinesis UK, where his version of Structural Integration KMI (Kinesis Myofascial Integration) was being taught. This was the turning point; Angela had been fascinated by the results of Structural Integration and the Anatomy Trains concept made so much sense.

Interviewing a few Osteopaths locally she began to appreciate that there were already some very proficient practitioners but only one other Structural Integrator who trained at the Guild for Structural Integration; there were no local KMI Structural Integrators in Warwickshire.

Graduating from KMI in June 2012, Angela also successfully passed her exam to be a Certified Board Structural Integrator with IASI the International Association of Structural Integrators. Within her Leamington Spa clinic she has been working with athletes, musicians and non sports clients with successful results.

Angela welcomes clients of all ages and abilities, including children. Whether you are looking to enhance your athletic career, correct a structural problem in early life or simply be more comfortable in your body, Structural Balance can help.

RODGER DAVIS

RD-KinesisPicA significant part of my professional life has been spent in architectural private practice through which I developed strong practically biased design skills and an innate understanding of structure.

My professional life apart I have long held an interest in sport, tennis in particular, and started considering sport-based interests and possible practice opportunities about ten years ago. From that position I qualified as a sports massage therapist in 2004.

Massage was an interesting introduction to bodywork, but it was through the discovery of Ida Rolf’s pioneering work and Tom Myers development of the Anatomy Trains structural integration concept that I saw the great potential for more productive bodywork, perhaps better performance and longer lasting results for my clients. Significantly, through my architectural training and prior knowledge of Buckminster Fullers geodesic domes and tensegrity, I was well able to embrace the correlation between engineering in architecture and the human body.

So, here was the opportunity to develop what is a different but for me strongly related skill in a new and exciting human architecture direction.

My home based practice is in Camden Town, London, NW1.
