JEMS Biomechanical Movement Specialists
JEMS (Joanne Elphinston Movement Systems)

Nicky has done an extensive course in the study and analysis of movement to understand injury prevention and rehabilitation.

JEMS training involves looking beyond assessing the site of pain or injury, instead looking at the interactions throughout the body to find out why it is happening, and therefore how to prevent it. JEMS draws from biomechanical, neuromuscular, sensory and behavioural principles to create the keys to effective, efficient movement. Movement is created with balance and symmetry, efficiency of muscle action, timing, control and awareness. It needs to integrate all the body systems to be responsive and adaptable to change.

The JEMS approach can be used to treat people from all walks of life from the elite sports person to the sedentary individual.

Small goals can lead to great things.
