Introduction to Feldenkrais Method 'Awareness through movement'
This method has been around for some time but remains relatively poorly understood. The process is one of facilitating learning using the ‘medium' of the body and the promotion of awareness. The lessons are aimed at improving function through self-discovery and hence participants can feel not only a greater ease of movement but also a heightened sense of self-agency as they enact their own improvements. Practitioners work in the Arts, Health and Education. In this introduction you will do a short lesson to experience the process.
This lecture focuses on aquatic physiotherapy for people with a disability and will provide an opportunity to discuss pool safety and clinical considerations for this population. An overview of the APA Aquatic Guidelines will be presented, particularly focusing on management of the pool environment and assessment of clients.
This will be followed by two case studies:
1) Community aquatic therapy within adult disability populations: supporting dignity of risk with persons with disabilities and common barriers under NDIS; and
2) Aquatic physiotherapy for traumatic brain injury, a private practice perspective.
The lecture will be presented by physiotherapists: Shayna Gavin, Slash Physiotherapy; Samuel Curtis, Yooralla; and Kelly Gibson, Steps Neurological Therapy Services.
Movement is defined as ‘the act or process of moving'. So what influences this process?
This presentation takes us back to our senses. What are they and what role do they play in assisting us to make accurate, efficient and complex movement choices?
Megan Reading and Kristy Nicola will present on the importance of ‘making sense' of movement, and how as physiotherapists we should always be aware of this when assessing and treating motor function/dysfunction.

Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (GTPS) is a common condition that affects up to 25% of women over the age of 40. It presents as lateral hip pain and is most likely due to gluteal tendinopathy. GPS is not only associated with impairments around the hip, but also with significant negative psychosocial impacts including reduced fulltime employment and poor mental health. GTPS can be hard to treat. The current evidence supports interventions such as exercise and appropriate education (load management).
